Hey Karl. I'm not sure I understand the question. a-hard-days-night-paul-10 Here is the thread you're talking about. It goes into the hows and whys of posting images on BBF. I hope this helps.

I suppose I could try this and see if this is OK. The back of my Korean ' white' album. This is what I am currently familiar with, but learning every day! LOL

So you're looking for information on this?

I'm willing to bet Happy Nat might know something.

two-virgins We're ok with that album. In fact, it was discussed a bit earlier – Two Virgins album cover…YIKES! There is no spoiler option that I'm aware of, but I think it would be useful. How about it Joe?

I can't help with the Korean cover, but if you have the cash, this book might be of use to you: The Beatles Covered. At € 139.25, it's a bit out of my price range.

Edit: Ok, I read your post on the album article. My guess is that it's a bootleg. I could see the cover being changed for the Korean market, but I'm not sure why they'd use the TV cover if it was authentic.

Holy cow!....that's about $175.00 US.....bit out of my blood also.

 Ok, here is a link to the inside cover/ right side above the 4 pictures. Two Virgins / Close up / inside left cover..see where the ' SR ' of USSR was blocked out at time of printing. Record company label on front cover. Side three label on record, look at the bands name. Not from heat...maybe a little more glue would ahve been nice? lol

 

So, how many here have ever seen this cover / album?  Surprising though, it came with the 4 individdual pics and the full color poster with no changes.

 

Big question....is this worth 50 cents or 50 thousand ??? a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Thanks for the link, I will contact them to see if they know anything.

 

Yes, my brother was up at the DMZ in South Korea at the time.

 

Skye, it was I who wrote on the jacket. Didn't give it much thought at the time.

 

Here the  Abbey Road album that I also got at the same time frame.The back cover was untouched, but look at the ad-libbing they did on the front cover. The AR album never had the large block letters on any of it's cover, did it?  I never could find one, at least looking at eBay.

 

Speaking of eBay, I saw this in closed auctions. Could this be real?  Not much to go on with the minimul write up.

OK, I've found out a little bit about the South Korean releases. The Taedo label stuff is counterfeit (meaning not approved by EMI or Apple). I've got a picture in a book (Beatles Worldwide by Christophe Maus) of the Abbey Road pressing similar to yours. I think they did them in blue because they didn't have sophisticated printing facilities.

Apparently the records were printed in small quantities of around 500-1,000, making them hard to come by. I don't know if that makes yours valuable.

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