I went to a friend's house who isn't a Beatles fan, and she asked me about this record. After research, I told her she had a counterfeit. I have never seen a real one because most of them are counterfeits. Has anyone ever seen or owned a real one?

I believe that my (inherited) pressing is a counterfeit. I looked into it a while ago.

I have one. Absolutely 100% authentic. My sister bought it in 1964 and it's been in the family ever since.

I have two, one mono (the version without Please Please Me ) and one stereo (with PPM ). I did all the the tests that you find online to see if it's counterfeit, and the stereo failed... miserably. But the mono, which was the way to listen to music then anyway, passed them all! I think I'm fortunate enough to have a real one, and I got it for $2! It's apparently the most counterfeited album of all time so that'd be pretty lucky, but I'm pretty sure it is real!

I have a re-pressing.  I don't know for certain that it is, but I'm pretty sure.  I haven't done any research whatsoever on this subject, but I have no reason to believe that it's original and the person that gave it to me didn't claim that it was.  The fact that I got a record that could potentially be worth thousands of dollars for free seems too good to be true to me.  Anyway, I collect records to listen to them, not to make money off of them.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

I had the Stereo version, but it had the same track listing as the Stereophonic version ('Love Me Do ' & 'P.S. I Love You' instead of 'Please Please Me ' & 'Ask Me Why &#39a-hard-days-night-george-10.  To the OP, Ron Nasty's 'It Was 50 Years Ago Today...' thread here  https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....o-today-3/  goes into a bit more detail about this album, starting on Page 1 of the thread...:-)

I decided to write features on the US albums. I've just published Introducing The Beatles, and will continue with the following:

Meet The Beatles!

The Beatles' Second Album

Something New

The Beatles' Story

Beatles 65

The Early Beatles

Beatles VI

Yesterday And Today

Hey Jude

I decided not to do separate features on the ones with the same titles as UK albums, so won't be making new pages for A Hard Day's Night , Help !, Rubber Soul and Revolver . I'll check that the features I already have on each one of those has sections on the US configuration and differences though.

Anyway, Introducing The Beatles. There was quite a lot to say about the Vee-Jay machinations etc. Bruce Spizer's The Beatles Are Coming! was a very useful resource.

This is great, these are the albums I grew up with. In my head, I still hear their sequencing, expecting to hear "Komm Gib Mir Deine Hand " every time I hear the end of "If I Fell ."

As for Introducing the Beatles, as I was recollecting all the albums on vinyl this year, I noticed there were SO many variations in the various pressings... I did find a useful guide here:

I love the Hey Jude album. Great mix of songs from early to late Beatles. Always enjoy listening to it.

This thread is for the Vee-Jay album Introducing The Beatles, which was based on the UK Please Please Me  album.

Beatlemania! With The Beatles  is the Canadian edition of the next album in the UK, @Bongo, With The Beatles .

There isn't yet a thread for the Hey Jude  album, @JW OBoogie, but Joe will be creating one when he adds his article about the album to the main site.

The following people thank Ron Nasty for this post:
