    hi there, well done on your listing of Beatles NZ released LPs, however just to correct you on one listing here – Greatest Hits was only released here in mono, even though we did press it in stereo for EMI Australia.

    I picked up a absolute mint copy of With The Beatles from a second hand store in Matakana NZ, with Blue Parlophone label Cat number PMCM. 1206 Made in NZ printed on label, Gold with red writing MONO sticker wrapped over the top above the WTB title on sleeve..there is no MONO printed on sleeve. It has Tucon Music and Leeds Music logos (Australia) printed on the label and His Masters Voice (NZ) Ltd on Sleeve. Cat number doesn’t elude to a reissue…Early 1964 NZ original but Cat number looks like UK number…Anybody have any ideas?

      That’s definitely a NZ catalogue number. The original NZ release in 1963 was MONO PMCM 1206 with a Parlaphone black/silver label and a paper inner sleeve. In 1964 a STEREO version with a Parlaphone blue label PCSM 3045 was issued. The MONO version was reissued in 1969, again as PMCM 1206, but with an Apple label.
      I suspect what you have is a 1964 MONO reissue with the blue Parlaphone label. A common cover was used with both catalogue numbers printed in the upper right flap and differentiated by use of a red/gold MONO or STEREO oversticker placed over the inappropriate catalogue number. In your case, I believe that you would find PCSM 3045 printed and hidden beneath the MONO oversticker.

    I Feel Fine / She’s A Woman is NZP 3175, not 3178 as listed above.

    There are three more. perhaps others.

    NZP 3169 And I Love Her / Ringo’s Theme (This Boy)

    NZP 3236 All You Need Is Love / Baby, You’re A Rich Man

    NZP 3249 I Am The Walrus / Hello, Goodbye
