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.

2C 006-04726M

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!

I have 2 albums by the fab 4 (well I have them all but this post refers to 2 of them) that appear to be Bootleg but I cannot find any reference to them anywhere, The covers are in the style of 'Let it be' with 4 photo's centered - the colour of one is Blue the other is Red (so very similar to official releases), does anybody know where I can find these catalogued, explained or otherwise accounted for - thanks all.

Do you have pictures of the albums?  That might help as well.

John had a song called "The Walk" on his jukebox.

  

Why was this moved here? It’s completely out of context, makes no sense, and doesn’t relate to the thread topic. @Ahhh Girl ?

It was a post in a thread that I moved over here. Start reading at post 36 in this thread. You were responding to that conversation, @Expert Textpert.

I see now. The conversation isn’t exactly consecutive. 

I suppose that’s the one thing that really bothers me. The forum is not a true historical archive and when your posts are moved you look like an idiot most of the time.

Those posts are in exactly the same order they were in the other thread. When I move the posts, I noted what posts go together.

Point taken. But there are now multiple conversations in one thread.

But isn't that what nearly every thread is, apart from those that die out in a post or two because there ain't much to say.

I suppose, but it still bothers me that the forum is constantly being rearranged. Just a pet peeve.

Forum rearranging is actually very minimal and generally, we tend to hold back where possible, even locking and redirecting where possible.

Well, something bothers me. It may not be the thing that I think is bothering me. But I’m pretty sure the thing that bothers me is here on the forum, whatever it is.

So 2 years ago when I used to browse discogs, I remember running into lots of cool unofficial bootlegs and foreign Beatles records you could buy.  However, now they've banned the sales of most of them.

Does anyone know another site where you can get a hold of bootlegs like that. I know I could check ebay and whatnot, but I'm more looking to see if there's a site like discogs that organizes stuff by pressing and specializes in the sale of records and things like that.
