@Evangeline  Check out Hendrix's "House Burning Down" and crank it up!  

I'll do that!
I've heard the song, but only through crappy headphones. It'll be cool to blast it.

Weird bootleg album I found for 27cents

I looked the company up, it's a corporation that makes bootleg records. When I looked at the list of records they had reproduced, Mine wasn't on there and I haven't found out anything about it.

I have yet to listen to it.

OMG - Great album! The type of record you might want with you on the proverbial desert island. Half the songs are classics.

Moonshadow, Peace Train, Morning Has Broken, How Can I Tell You, If I Laugh...

(I believe they've appeared in any number of movies, TV shows, etc...)

Let us know what you think.

I own the original album. It's really awesome. I love it more than his Tea For The Tillerman album.paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Let's hope it's not a pirate of the original album, rather than a bootleg. Still, if it does turn out to be a pirate, 27cents ain't too much of a loss.

Is there a big difference between pirate and bootleg records?

I assumed they were the same, also picture of a description of the company I found.

There is a difference, @Evangeline, and quite a big difference.

Pirate labels would/do produce fakes of officially released material, cheaply pressed and without the production values of the official release, selling it below the price of the official product to attract buyers. Bootleg labels, meanwhile, concentrate on officially unreleased studio or live material.

In this instance if, when you get to hear it, it is a straight copy of the official album, then it's a pirate, but if it contains alternate studio takes or live versions of the songs then it is a bootleg.

A slight update to this: according to this excellent guide, there were just 250 demo discs made of Love Me Do , making it one of the rarest Beatles records made. One sold for £8,500 on eBay in 2013, another for £11,100 in 2011, another (in worse condition) for just £1,950 the same year.

Made for both radio and for the record shops, all U.K. Parlophone and Apple 7" Beatles singles had promotional Records.

A Promo is always a copy of the exact performance and mix that is to be sold in the record shops. It is pressed from the very same plates used to make the commercially-available 45rpm singles.

The first 12 Beatles singles, from "Love Me Do " trough "Paperback Writer "(*)  all had promo's on white-label disks with black ink and, on the Aside, a large red "A"over the face of the label.

Records like "Day Tripper /We Can Work It Out ", issued as double-A-sided disks, had the red "A" on both sides of the record label.

* excepted for "She Loves You , Can't Buy Me Love , I Feel Fine , and Help !"

EMI did not prepare a demonstration record for these records.

Beginning with "All You Need Is Love (**)", Promo's were made with a lime-green background and a White "A" on the intended Aside.

These lime -green promo's had slightly-smaller labels, so the labels fit within the circle of ridges surrounding the label area, instead of overlapping onto them, as the previous promo's did.

**  EMI did not prepare a demonstration record for "Strawberry Fields Forever "

Demo copies of EMI records were issued in "Top Pop" sleeves.

Demo's from "Love Me Do " untill "A Hard Day's Night " would have featured a blue, yellow or red sleeve.

I don't have figures for how many demos of subsequent Beatles singles were made, but I'd imagine it was many more than 250.

I'm definitely going to keep looking for demo Beatles singles, although there are counterfeits out there. It seems it's quite easy to print off a label with a big red A on it and glue over a normal Parlophone one. Who'd have thought it?

  

@Joe, got £4k hanging around in a bank account that you don't know what to do with?

https://www.birminghammail.co......n-15966251

A Beatles record is expected to sell for more than £4,000 at auction.

The sale comes after it was 'accidentally' donated to charity.

The demo of the Liverpool band's debut single is one of only 250 that were originally made to be sent to radio stations.

The Love Me Do single was donated it to a British Heart Foundation (BHF) store in Midhurst, West Sussex.

The original seven-inch demo comes complete with a misspelling of Paul McCartney 's surname, as "Lennon-McArtney" are credited.

All money will go to charity.

I'm 14 and hadn't used (or even seen) record player in action until a few days before my birthday last year when I received this:

steepletone-rico-record-player~49S034FRSP.jpgImage Enlarger

It is a Steepletone 'RICO' model. Not only does it plays vinyls, but also has a built in CD player, USB port and radio. a-hard-days-night-john-1

  

Good lord, look at little Peppdog be a know-it-all brag...a-hard-days-night-ringo-12ahdn_paul_06paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

I still have this record player but to be fair, it isn't that great and only use it now and again. The CD player, radio and USB port work and sound great, but the turntable is a tad wonky (I don't know how and if I can fix it) and it makes my records sound awfully tinny. I'm currently in no hurry to upgrade, but I'd like to. My records play through okay - last time I used it for that was a few months back to play You Ain't Going Nowhere over and over at full blast from my copy of Best of The Byrds Volume 2 lol ahdn_george_06 but my 45s and Beatles EPs are greatly affected by the wonky-ness. There's the rare occasion some play all the way through, but most of the time, a lot of my singles just stop about 20-30 seconds before they're supposed to end. It's quite infuriating, so that's why I don't use it too often.

Working on upgrading my music setup.  I just bought a new record player.  Next, I need new speakers.  I'm excited to see how it will sound when I get it all put together.

My parents ordered me a Fluance RT82 turntable and speakers to go with it-- it's supposed to arrive sometime this week, maybe even today!!! I'm so excited!!!!!

As mentioned elsewhere, I also got Sgt. Pepper 's on vinyl and am looking forward to buying a few more with some of my birthday money! I can't wait to start collecting-- my plan is to just get the majority of the Beatles studio albums first and then go on to buy some records from my other favorite artists. 

My turntable and records are probably gonna be up there with my other "prized possessions that nobody is allowed to touch but me" (which includes my guitar, my Doc Martens, and my books lmao)

And the turntable arrived yesterday.  Today I bought the speakers.  Let's see how long they take to come.

My Fluance RT82 turntable came today-- it arrived right after I finished my exam, which was nice. Now I just gotta wait for a bit for the bacteria on the package to die after we cleaned it before I open it and then I can set it up! *excitement intensifies*
