Hello! My first post is about this "Meet The Beatles" album I own. Few seconds before the start of Don't Bother Me you can hear a voice saying "ST-two-two-o-four-seven". I've read about this st-2-2047 edition of the album but  never of the "voice" in question. How unusual is this?

I have never heard of such a thing before, but I looked it up and found this info:

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

I've never heard of that before! I wonder who the mystery voice is - presumably a tape operator.
The Steve Hoffman thread didn't mention this precise same thing - anyone know about an extra 'don't' in Don't Bother Me?

According to Winn in Way Beyond Compare it was released ". . .on a 1970's Canadian pressing of Meet The Beatles which has the word "don't" repeated during the final verse. This oddity is caused by a tape glitch and isn't a true alternate mix".

So sounds like it got stuck for a millisecond, like when a cd catches.

I have this Canadian version with the extra "Don't" but there is no count or voice at the beginning.

The further one travels, the less one knows

Thanks for all the replies, as soon as I repair my turntable I'll upload the audio.

This is a great song, especially for George's 1st writing credit.

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

This is a great song! Then again, George songs hardly ever disappoint.

Now if I ever get a 4th copy of Meet The Beatles, it'll be that glitched pressing because I want one now.
