Congratulations on your fabulous purchase. Looks good it does.

I like the AHDN cover. If you ever get around to playing them can you let me know how good the sound quality is. I would find that interesting to know.

Weren't they banned in Russia during the 60's?

Any Russian pressing is from at least the 1990s.  I'm not a stickler for getting completely original copies of the era.  I just want to get international versions.  My 'Please Please Me' is an original UK, and my 'With The Beatles' is a later Toshiba-Apple pressing.

 

I'm doing this for the fun of it.  I figure why bother shelling out a ton of cash for an original mono UK pressing of 'Rubber Soul', when I could get a Taiwanese copy with a radically different cover for a fraction of the price…

Sweet, I found good record player but with cost of amps and speakers it gets pricey…

I run my turntable through the home theatre that came with my TV.  Sounds beautiful and didn't cost any huge amount.  And the separate subwoofer really makes Paul's bass lines sound incredible.

My Russian "Hard Day's Night" should be here this week.

 

Now I just need to think about if I'm going to keep this going, since I've ordered the vinyl box set, and they've announced the mono vinyl box set will be out next year…

My Russian "A Hard Day's Night" has arrived!  A photo is coming…

 

But now, I think my Class Project will slow down a little bit.  I pre-ordered the vinyl box set.  I had a party and woke up to find that I had ordered the mono CD set…  

So while I will continue to buy original international copies of the catalogue, I'll be doing it much more slowly and thoughtfully.
