I bought the record from someone and it is in the mail now. I don't know all the details about the record yet because I haven't seen it in person, but I know it is a Please Please Me album that is a 12" Orange Vinyl Record. All the writing on the label is either in Japanese or possibly Korean. The only English on the label is the list of songs on both sides. It is a stereo version and is from the early to mid 1960's. It also has The Beatles misspelled as "The Beattes." The company that produced it is unknown since it was all written in another language, but I feel like the logo may be an Odeon one? There are lyrics on the back of the album cover along with the rest of them written on a loose sheet of paper that was included inside the album. The lyrics are also written in English. The album cover is made of a lightweight cardboard instead of the heavier cardboard used in the US. It is also wrapped in plastic which has ultimately protected the album cover.

The songs on Side 1 are:

1. Please Please Me 2. Anna 3. I Saw Her Standing There 4. Boys 5. Misery 6. Chains 7. Ask Her Why

Side 2:

1. Twist And Shout 2. A Taste Of Honey 3. Love Me Do 4. Do You Want To Know A Secret 5. Baby It's You 6. There's A Place 7. P.S. I Love You

 

I have extensively tried to find information on this Please Please Me album all over the internet, but haven't had any luck. Does anyone know anything about it, its origins, or if it is worth anything? Thanks so much!!

From what I can see, it doesn't look Korean. It's not clear enough to say if it is Japanese or Chinese, but me and yoko-ono-01 are leaning Japanese.

It's a Taiwanese counterfeit, from around 1965. Apparently they were produced mainly for US GIs stationed there, so many Taiwanese pressings found their way to America. None of the releases were official (hence there's no Taiwan discography on my site), but there were various titles produced there.

Interesting history. Was there no market for them in Taiwan besides GIs?

Skye, not all your mistakes are Yoko's fault. Just 99.9999999% of them. Get it right Skye.

I don't know; AFAIK it was mainly GIs who were asking for them, and so counterfeiters put them out to satisfy demand. Probably others were Beatles fans too, but the primary market was US soldiers. It's not something I know a great deal about TBH.
