    You’re missing one of the East German releases, so there must have been at least 4 LPs.

    It’s Amiga Stereo 8 55 742 – a version of 1967-1970 on one LP (14 tracks).

    If you want a track listing and/or a scan of the cover, just contact me.

    Hi! In my youth back around 1970 I had a Beatles-abum which I cannot remember what was named. The only thing I for sure remember is that this album was somewhat strange, cause it had both all the songs from the Hamburg-period + the first Parlophone-singles, mixed together on both sides, Both Please please me, I want to hold Your hand, From me to you and Thank you girl were present on the record inbetween Ain’t she sweet, Take out som einsurence…and all those others.
    I can vaguely remember that the label was kind of Orange and white, as the German bargainlabel- “Europa”, but cannot remember how the cover looked like, not even colours. But I believe that the album probably was a german release. Do you have any idea of this strange album combining borht Polydor and EMI-songs???
    Hope you can give me a reply to this ;)
    Cheers from Norway
    Johnny
