    Hi, Joe

    first at all, sorry for my impatience. I must understand that there is life outside this web page :). So, I will inform the inaccuracy in the most discographies as possible as I can do it. (Don’t sure if I have express myself correctly in your tongue. So sorry again).

    In Costa Rica, like in Mexico, the Beatles’ album discography was a hybrid one between the US version and the UK version discographies. The five first albums were:

    “Meet the Beatles” (mono, Odeon T-2047; released in 1964; songs and LP cover like US issue)

    “The Beatles’ Second Album” (mono, Odeon T-2080; released in 1964; songs and LP cover like US issue)

    “Something New” (mono, Odeon T-2108; released in 1964; songs and LP cover like US issue)

    “Beatles for Sale” (mono, Odeon PMC-1240; released in early 1965; songs and LP cover like UK issue)

    “Help!” (mono, Odeon SMAS 2386; released in 1965; songs and LP cover like US issue)

    For the last of this LP’s (“Help!”) sure there was a mono issue of the album (like in USA), but I don’t have the info.

    I don’t know of the rest of the Costa Rica’s Beatles’ album discographiy.

    Sorry, but I must add another LP that I’ve seen on a web site: “Beatles ’65″ (mono, Odeon T-2228; same as the US issue). In the rear cover states: “Also available in stereo”, so I must suppose there are mono and stereo versions of all the Beatles’ albums released in Costa Rica from the very first start, like in the United States.

    And a correction above for the “Help!” album: this album was released at least in stereo (prefix cat# SMAS, as stated in my info), apart surely in mono.

    Uf, no more.

      Thanks Rafa. I think I’ve amended everything, but let me know if I’ve missed out something. And if you hear of cat #s for the stereo releases do please let me know.
