I hope someone can shed some light onto a question that's been driving me crazy for some time.  I have a monoaurl UAL 3366 A "A Hard Day's Night" (I Cry Instead) copy. The odd thing about this album is that is has Side 1 labels on both sides of the vinyl. Both sides are identical as far as the label but the cuts are actually a side one and side two. I haven't been able to track down another copy to see if this is normal or not. Is this normal?

 Mods, If this isn't the correct place for this question, please move or delete.

Thanks in advance!
John

That's the first I've heard such a thing. I'm not sure if that labeling makes it a rarity or just a production process gone horribly wrong. Perhaps Joe or Von Bontee can shed some light on that.

Wecome to the Forum, BTW.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I found this page detailing the various pressings and their $ value but didn't read it in full – maybe there's some useful info there:

I'm sure one of Bruce Spizer's books has info on this, if it's a known mispressing. If it's not you might be sitting on something quite valuable. I'm not a record collector though – I never know about the value of these things.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Thanks for the warm welcome and valuable info! I've been collecting Beatles albums for a few years and noticed this oddity a few weeks back when going through the collection with my daughter. I'll check out the link and also see if I can dig up a copy of Spizer's book. I have the Goldmine price guide but nothing mentioned in there about this specifically.  Thanks again for the help and I'm glad I stumbled on this site! I'll be spending a lot more time than my wife would like looking around :D

Welcome! Here's an apple! apple01

Anyway, I have a story like this. Well, similar. I was inspecting my copy of AHDN once and I noticed that the songs were all written in English but instead of saying 'Produced by George Martin', it said it in Portugeese. I then went to a record dealer a few weeks later and he said it wasn't that there, they were quite common if anything. I picked this record up for £10 at a car boot sale, who knows where it came from!

Anyone else got a copy like this?
