LOVE to know how many of those idiots bought & burned newly-released butcher-sleeve copies of "Yesterday & Today"!

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

Some of the more obscure things I have are foreign singles and albums (eg indian, australian, japanese), a couple of picture discs, a promo cd for Live At The BBC, and some promotional marketing thing for when Yellow Submarine came out in 1999.

 

Also have the first 4 uk albums on what is described as "3 3/4 inch twin track mono tape record" and a handful of us albums on 7 1/2 inch tape. I have no idea what all that means but they look like the Pepper one below. I got the UK ones in a shop in Kilmarnock and the rest in Glasgow. Doubt they are worth much at all (not why i bought them) but ive never seen any ever again in shops and they are something different to own.

Yikes!

That's my thing. See the Into the Sky thread in the book section of this forum (or http://on.wsj.com/A67nc3 despite the crummy picture of me). The book's in a sense written around my collection going back a few decades. I upload items on the Forum when it fits into an ongoing conversation. My favorite items are the ones that are either rare or seem quite mundane but reflect a great story. An example of the latter would be tickets to the Kansas City concert in '64 ...

It's 11:30 PM in New York, so to be continued.

[P.S. I swear I didn't ask SatanHimself to start this thread]

Here are some pics!

Note the Canadian-only 'Long Tall Sally' album.  The copy of 'Revolver' is a Canadian mono.  And yes, like the U.S. Capitol version, it pointlessly omits 2 songs...

Some Beatley 45s!  The George one is a double A-side, so there's no "inside slice" on the flip side.

This was a little scrapbooked thingie inside of my copy of 'Long Tall Sally'.  It's a nice feeling to know that some kid went out of their way to cut and glue this.  It now will live out its life on my fridge.

This is a nice detail of the "Something" single.

E is for 'Ergent'.

Just to be a right pain in the neck (sorry) the US (and therefore i presume Canada too) omitted 3 songs from Revolver not 2.

 

(Yes i am that type of person but then i'll move non-beatles cd's out of the beatles racks in music shops - they just shouldnt be there. (I know it was a typo but it had to be corrected (unless you think one song should have been omitted in which case i retract this post) - mainly because if i saw it in a book id be screaming at it)).

Again apologies.

Yes, it is 3 songs, not 2.  Sorry about that.  I didn't notice the absence of "I'm Only Sleeping".

After the Canadian-only trifecta of 'Beatlemania!', 'Twist And Shout' and 'Long Tall Sally', all Canadian LPs mirror their U.S. counterparts.

I went to a local boutique record shop today, specifically because I knew they had this...

I've had a bootleg of 'RAM' in mono for years, and now I have a nice thick pristine vinyl copy!

What the hell's that red Apple label on LIB? I've never seen one of those before. I know the original UK release had a red apple on the back, but not on the label.

Is that one of the new mono Ram reissues? Looks like you've got a good record shop there.

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