Hi

I bought this single on release and noticed then that "Day Tripper" is shown on both sides of the record but "We Can Work It Out" plays on the B side and have often wondered if there were many other pressing errors for this single. I only remembered about it when we bought my youngest son a turntable and he "borrowed" many of my singles to play in his student flat and I spotted the error when perusing his "new collection". Was this pressing error unusual or were all the "Day Tripper" singles like this?

I don't know about the printing error, but if it was uncommon, that's pretty cool.

I'll say this doesn't belong in Pimp Your Stuff unless you're hoping to sell it.

My American Capitol 45 doesn't have that error (welcome briant). That could be on the rare side.

I agree with IveJustSeenAFaceo that this thread probably belongs elsewhere (memorabilia?)

I moved the posts to here as the memorabillia thread is more for rare items, I think.

The point is that it kind of is a rare item.

True, but I meant ''rare'': letters, photos, autographs, etc. I'll talk to the mods for their opinion.

Looks like it got moved here, to the vinyl thread, which seems like a good fit.

I just came back from the big antique store in my neck of the woods and I bought:

-George's "When We Was Fab" 7-inch with really nice picture sleeve

-An original Capitol 45 of "Strawberry Fields Forever / Penny Lane" with the original Capitol sleeve

-A vintage copy of 'Let It Bleed' by The Stones

-Another first-edition uncensored 'Some Girls' by The Stones (I forgot I already owned one)

-A copy of 'DaDa' by Alice Cooper (a loooong out of print album recorded in an alcoholic haze)

There were plenty more treats to be found, but all of that cost close to 40 dollars and I didn't want to go overboard.

Great finds!

My local record store just had a big sale (although the stuff I got was normal priced because it was part of the collection they just got so that's irrelevant) so I went this weekend.

I'd been looking for the Police for a while as they're my favorite band after the Beatles and I walk in and I'm handed all of their studio albums except for Reggatta de Blanc, plus Every Breath You Take: The Singles that they'd put aside for me. I didn't really need to keep looking around as that was perfect but I found a Capitol 45 of Pepper & With A Little Help/A Day In The Life also in the Capitol sleeve!

I've been getting really lucky since they got this collection!

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

A somewhat thorough search revealed no mention of this mispressing.  I would remove it from your son's collection and have it appraised, if it were me.  Unless it's in poor condition, but even then, you never know...

wait - strike that - is this it? Unfortunately it's just at auction, no price is available yet...misprints like this are usually more (but sometimes less) valuable than regular prints.

 

Half of what I say is meaningless...

I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day

In the case of Double Fantasy, they were printing new copies as fast as they could after 8 December. It was sold out most everywhere by the time shops shut on the 9 December, and new copies were being rushed out worldwide.

As I say up above, records are not like books. Without label/sleeve variations, there is no way to tell. The value of a record is held in variations on the normal, so even if you could say it was bought at the end of November 1980, it wouldn't be considered any different by collectors than a copy from Geffen's last vinyl run in 1988.

The only additional value it could have would be sentimental value to you, liking the thought that it dates close to release.

Here's the label of my (UK) Double Fantasy, bought on the day of release - as Mr. Nasty says, probably no difference to later releases, but at least I can say I was buying John Lennon records on the day of release when he was alive!

Nothing Beatles or Beatles solo that I saw, sadly...

Excellent, there's an American Authors single. One of two current bands I like. And a Nirvana single. And an Oasis single. And a Pogues Live LP with Joes Strummer! Disappointed not to see a Radiohead release, they're normally there. I'll try to get to a record store on that day!

There are a few really nice titles this time around.  I'm always impressed with Warner's contributions.

Sadly, I'm sure most of these will only be found on eBay for stupid prices.  I'll definitely be able to get that Bowie "1984" 7-inch picture disc though.  My stores always get the Bowie 45s.

I feel the need to point out my sarcasm just in case someone actually believed I liked one direction

I got it. Looks to be a good selection. I really hope my record store orders the Pogues/Strummer live album.

Maybe you'll get lucky... I just wish I knew about this last year, because there was something by Wings and a Ringo singles box set.

Sarcastic or not, that was still bad!

I like the idea behind RSD, but a lot of the stuff that gets released really winds me up. It feels like an excuse for record labels to reissue old stuff as limited editions in fancy packaging, which have no value apart from their rarity. So a small proportion of fans gets to buy them if they queue early enough, but a lot get snapped up by dealers and put straight on eBay at higher prices.

I'd have less of a problem if there was some great new music, but who needs a David Bowie picture disc of something that's been available since the 70s? Or a Beatles box set that contains no new/unreleased music but just so happens to be in a fancy box? This isn't done to support the record stores - it's been hijacked by the major labels. It'd be far better if they put out non-limited releases but stipulated they could only be sold in independent shops rather than online - that'd take away the resale value but put music into the hands of the fans.

Maybe I'm just out of the target market. I haven't been in a record shop for months. I used to practically live in them, but nowadays they don't really offer me any benefit I can't get online. Sad to say but I wouldn't regret their demise.

I also like this attitude:
