I came across this item today the front cover has the above writing on it and numbers in the top left side say POP MH-7236-37 and it is a black and white photo on the front. This is all I have as I took a few photos and don't remember much else about the records. On the reverse there is lots of asian writing (maybe japanese?) and the last numbers are 7113508
 

I have searched every japanese and korien LP I can find and through various discographies and only find Love Songs which is a very different cover.

 

Any help??

 

Thanks

 

Grant

Hi Grant. Could you post a picture? It might help someone identify it.

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

hey thanks for your interest. I still do not own this yet so i don'y have the ability to take more photo's.

 

Here is a link to another record which shows the cover

 

http://www.popsike.com/The-Bea.....41193.html

 

The difference is an oval printed label on the front of the cover stating A Classic Collection of previously released Beatles Love Songs. Both records are a red label but not the usual Apple, EMI or Parlaphone. The text is all Japanese in silver and I think there is a track listing on the reverse side in Japanese too.

There is no OBI or lyric sheets.I still can't find anything about this gatefold pressing.

This is intriguing to me. Good luck tracking it down.
