It's in the grey area, i don't see anything wrong with it personally but then again, my morals are more laid back than other people's morals.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

I didn't want to pretend I had high morals or something like that - this would have been ridiculous of me since I listen to bootlegs myself (for example, quite a lot in the Non-Canon Poll...). The thing is that the extent of this Bootleg series makes me feel a little uneasy because it's one entire album with 10+ tracks for each song in the Beatles canon which is quite a lot for something illegal. But never mind, you can still buy it in a normal record store so it can't be that bad.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Some very unusual releases back there, especially that Savoy Truffle EP! But I think we should help @alraune, whose post seems to have got ignored on the last page.

Hi there, I ordered a Pakistani Beatles EP. It´s an "imported one" like this one
http://www.popsike.com/Beatles.....04366.html

So how do I know, that I have a Pakistani instead of an English pressing
In the popsike-offer is written, that:"NOTE; APPLE RECORDS MADE IN PAKISTAN DID NOT HAVE THE COUNTRY OF MANUFACTURE PRINTED ON THE LABELS."

How to know, where the record comes from? Thanks in advance!

Don't worry, I think Apple/Paul/Ringo/Yoko/Olivia will survive with a few bootlegs kickin' around! a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Hi all, 

I recently picked up a 7" copy on Apple records I can't track down. Any help or hints would be most welcome. Thanks in advance!

The side with the bright green Granny Smith apple (probably the A-side) states: "No Matter What" by Badfinger. 

The flipside (with the cross section of the apple) states: "Why" by Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band.

It's made in France by Pathe Marconi.

B.I.E.M.

C 006-04726 M B

I searched all over the internet but there seems to be no mention of this particular combination between Badfinger on one side & Plastic Ono Band on the other side. 

Could this be a misprint? 

Thanks for your time!
