The red apple is back on the back of the Let It Be reissue of 2009. Anyone know if its a red apple on the actual cd?

Nope, it's green, like the original UK version.

 

The red apple was only for the U.S., I believe.  I can't speak for Canadian copies, because we mirrored so many U.S. releases.  But since United Artists had the film rights for the U.S., they also had the distribution rights as well.  They made the apple red to mark the distinction from Capitol releases.

 

I guess I'm getting ahead of myself for my Class Project thread, but I saw it at a super-cool local record boutique, and I knew if I didn't buy it now I wouldn't see another one for a while.

 

And YES!  They also had the mono 'Ram'!  I've had the mono bootleg forever, but once I saw the ratty-sleeved 180g limited numbered remaster, I knew it was to be mine...  The differences aren't all that massive, but it's a nice piece of post-Beatles history.

E is for 'Ergent'.

And I just looked at my vinyl, and it's signed "Phil & Ronnie" in the runout groove.  I love stuff like that.

If it was only the red apple for the US market why is it on my copy of the let it be cd? That wasnt a US release.

 

Why cant the Beatles, EMI & Apple do things simply instead of creating all these ifs, buts, why's and what the heck's to drive us mad?

That one has nothing to do with United Artists… in 1979 Capitol got the rights to A Hard Day's Night and Let It Be, and anyways it wasn't a US release. It's so insignificant, but I want to know the answer now.

Great topic!

Collecting Beatles memorabilia has been a way to capture great memories for me.  I’ve been a Beatles fan for years and have enjoyed collecting their music and all of the memorabilia that was a large part of the experience.  Seltaeb licensed over 150 different items internationally:dolls, scarves, mugs, bath water, wigs, t-shirts, bubble gum, licorice, empty cans of ‘Beatle Breath’, badges, and many more.

Here is a link to my website with pictures of some of my collection:

I found and purchased my first John vinyl, Mind Games, from a local antique shop over the weekend! It was an exciting moment in the life of Dipsy, I must say. a-hard-days-night-george-10

My Beatles and solo-Beatles record collection is slowly growing. ahdn_george_08 As of now, I have:

1) London Town by Paul McCartney and Wings

2) At the Speed of Sound by Paul McCartney and Wings

3) Pipes Of Peace by Paul McCartney

4) A 45 of the "Live And Let Die" single by Paul McCartney and Wings

5) A 45 of the "Uncle Albert/ Admiral Halsey" single by Paul McCartney and Wings

6) Mind Games by John Lennon

7) Magical Mystery Tour by The Beatles

As you can see, I have far better luck finding Paul stuff. I suppose I could technically buy records that I don't have off of Amazon or something, but you just can't beat the rush of unveiling an original Beatles vinyl at a hole-in-the-wall antique shop. a-hard-days-night-paul-11 One of life's little pleasures.

I spot the occasional Red or Blue Album in my thrift store excursions, myself.  The 70s & 80s hits and theme collections pop up every now and then, but my personal victory was finding a vintage White Album.  It's an unnumbered Apple label version, and the outside cover has pen tracings around the embossing, as well as the boys' names in bubble-lettered ballpoint ink on the back.

 

It cost me a dollar and it sounds like it was never played.

Wow, all this is so cool! I wish I had actual memorabilia rather than just CDs. But they may be considered memorabilia soon anyways. I'll have to go hunting when I go home on a break, that's where I found a CD copy of With The Beatles. Vinyl hunting will definitely be next when I have the opportunity!

You make your own dream.

I love the whole experience of buying records. The smell that hits you when you first walk into a crammed shop full of vinyl. Bliss. (Smells similar to a carpeted library, which I also love the smell of). The searching through dozens and dozens of them until you find one that you quite like. Maybe getting the store owner to play it while you look for some more (only nice ones do that though). Much better than buying a CD off of the internet.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Phil & Ronnie?? Not "Spector", surely?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

As in the Spectors, yes. Phil had them put that in the run out groove of all original pressings.

I got a couple cool items.  Aside from the usual stuff like CD's, books, t shirts, etc.  Some of the stuff i really value include an early hardcover 2nd or 3rd print of John's in his own write, a Corgi made die cast yellow submarine, a set of the mcfarlane yellow submarice figures and some cool records including a copy of Ringo with the book and some interesting Dutch records.

 

Actually while we're on this topic i'm thinking of picking up a set of 1964 bobbleheads off ebay.  There's a couple options i'm looking at one of which i think is pretty cheap except that George is missing the back of his head and is unattached from the rest of his body.  I can glue it though and it should still look presentable from the front.

 

I live in Toronto, and there used to be an incredible store here called the Beatlemania shoppe.  The guy had everything at a time when you couldn't buy much beatles memorabilia at all.  He used to float around and move locations and i'm pretty sure he's closed up shop a number of years ago, but man that store was like a wonderland.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Ho...Lee...Crap

A most impressive list to say the least. What intrigues me most is "handwritten poetry from Sutcliffe…a Sutcliffe signature…".

A. How did you ever procure these?

B. How were they authenticated?

Hey Zig...The Sutcliffe poetry was taken from one of his Hamburg journals from 1960 that came up for auction...I've dealt with the major auction houses...the signature was clipped from one of Stu's workbooks at the Liverpool College Of Art. My Lennon pants come from Sotheby's...the Lennon hat from Christie's..Lennon's towels are also from Christie's...etc.I deal with Frank Caiazzo...Paul Wane of TRACKS...and others.My major items come from the auction houses...the other items come from some of the best memorabilia dealers in the US and the UK...
