Hi

I bought this single on release and noticed then that "Day Tripper" is shown on both sides of the record but "We Can Work It Out" plays on the B side and have often wondered if there were many other pressing errors for this single. I only remembered about it when we bought my youngest son a turntable and he "borrowed" many of my singles to play in his student flat and I spotted the error when perusing his "new collection". Was this pressing error unusual or were all the "Day Tripper" singles like this?

I just came back from the big antique store in my neck of the woods and I bought:

-George's "When We Was Fab" 7-inch with really nice picture sleeve

-An original Capitol 45 of "Strawberry Fields Forever / Penny Lane" with the original Capitol sleeve

-A vintage copy of 'Let It Bleed' by The Stones

-Another first-edition uncensored 'Some Girls' by The Stones (I forgot I already owned one)

-A copy of 'DaDa' by Alice Cooper (a loooong out of print album recorded in an alcoholic haze)

There were plenty more treats to be found, but all of that cost close to 40 dollars and I didn't want to go overboard.

The following people thank SatanHimself for this post:

Great finds!

My local record store just had a big sale (although the stuff I got was normal priced because it was part of the collection they just got so that's irrelevant) so I went this weekend.

I'd been looking for the Police for a while as they're my favorite band after the Beatles and I walk in and I'm handed all of their studio albums except for Reggatta de Blanc, plus Every Breath You Take: The Singles that they'd put aside for me. I didn't really need to keep looking around as that was perfect but I found a Capitol 45 of Pepper & With A Little Help/A Day In The Life also in the Capitol sleeve!

I've been getting really lucky since they got this collection!

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!

A somewhat thorough search revealed no mention of this mispressing.  I would remove it from your son's collection and have it appraised, if it were me.  Unless it's in poor condition, but even then, you never know...

wait - strike that - is this it? Unfortunately it's just at auction, no price is available yet...misprints like this are usually more (but sometimes less) valuable than regular prints.

 

Half of what I say is meaningless... I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day BeatlesBible.com earns royalties if you use these links when shopping: Amazon | iTunes

In the case of 
Double Fantasy, they were printing new copies as fast as they could after 8 December. It was sold out most everywhere by the time shops shut on the 9 December, and new copies were being rushed out worldwide.

As I say up above, records are not like books. Without label/sleeve variations, there is no way to tell. The value of a record is held in variations on the normal, so even if you could say it was bought at the end of November 1980, it wouldn't be considered any different by collectors than a copy from Geffen's last vinyl run in 1988.

The only additional value it could have would be sentimental value to you, liking the thought that it dates close to release.

Here's the label of my (UK) Double Fantasy, bought on the day of release - as Mr. Nasty says, probably no difference to later releases, but at least I can say I was buying John Lennon records on the day of release when he was alive!

Don't know why it's rotated - it's not on my computer.

Nothing Beatles or Beatles solo that I saw, sadly...
