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
