Not the best of starts here, @DanIsTheWalrus. I am in total agreement with the comments of @Joe and @Ahhh Girl. We are a welcoming community who do not demand a degree-level knowledge of The Beatles to join us. As an example, one of our regular contributors is 12, and very valued she is, but she is learning about and discovering The Beatles. My jaw would hit the floor if she knew all I did, as I’ve been a fan since 1980 and am still learning new things.

I answer many questions here, and I did do some research on your mispressing. I wasn’t going to bother posting a response, but that would be as disrespectful as some of your comments. It’s a late ’70s mispressing, and not particularly valuable. A copy sold on e-Bay two years ago for £11.97. The most valuable mispress of Get Back  is the 1969 with Mary Hopkin’s Sparrow on the b-side, which I’ve seen reach £100.

Truth is, the North End Music Stores bag is probably far more valuable, as the vast majority would have been thrown away, and I’d imagine they’re quite rare.

Should you decide that you’d like to be here, no one will hold a bad first post against you, but please respect everyone who posts here, and never criticise anyone who doesn’t know something you think they should. If everybody knew all that I did, I’d have no questions to answer, and you wouldn’t have come here asking a question!

I apologise for the humour, thanks btw. Wasn’t out to offend, i thought the title of the post was quite appeasing. Not one for forums ????

 

Thanks, 

 

Is there anything further you could tell me about the NEMS bag? There are two bags : one paper, one plastic cover and the record is mint condition gate fold first pressing.

 

If anyone wants to fight me still I will be in the local saloon reading the bible.

Here’s an interesting puzzle. I’ve wanted ‘Please Please Me ‘ for a looong time now and recently – there it was in a box of LP’s given to me by someone who is moving to a smaller home and downsizing. It’s a South African Pressing but I’m really struggling to find it online to find out more about it – value etc, although I’m not planning to sell. Can anyone please assist? I have found quite a few S.A. pressings on Discogs but not one that looks like this. These are the specs I can’t find on other pressings:

1. There is no red Parlophone Logo at top left of sleeve and no ‘mono’ or ‘stereo’ at top right.
2. My copy has Parlophone and EMI logos at the top right which I cannot find on other pressings
3. The spacing of all the content on the back of the sleeve is very ‘centred’ and not spread out toward the corners as with other pressings.

Details are

Cat # PMCJ 1202
Matrix XEX 421 on Side 1
Matrix XEX 422 on Side 2

Would love to find details about this exact copy online so any help would be appreciated.

Hi everyone,

I recently picked up a sealed copy of Anthology 3 from an independent Edinburgh record shop and it’s turned out to be a mispressing. At least I hope it is and it’s not a bootleg. 

All LP’s are labelled correctly however the 3 LP’s are pressed in this order:

LP 1:

Side 1 – Plays side 1

Side 2 – Plays side 2 

LP 2:

Side 3 – Plays Side 3

Side 4 – Plays side 5 (according to track listing)

LP 3:

Side 5 – Plays side 4 (according to track listing)

Side 6 – Plays side 6

 

Has anyone else encountered this? Do people think that this is a legit copy of the album? Finally, if it is legit, do you reckon it’s worth anything? I know these kind of things can sometimes make it a bit more valuable as it’s a quirk. The fact that it’s an anthology album and not an original LP leads me to believe it probably wont effect anything, but who knows. 

Help is much appreciated,

Thanks!

I am wondering if anyone can help me with an odd one. I havr a Canadian pressing of Revolver (already different than the UK of course) but it was pressed with the same 5 songs on both side A and B. I have looked on line and can’t find any references to it….

 

Any info such as rarity and possible value would be appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Hi denlimack.  It might be worth something to somebody, but as you may already know, there are a trillion copies of this Capitol record, so I bet there a quite a few mistakes out there.  Obviously there are less Canadian copies than USA copies, but they are basically the same.  If it were an original 1966 copy, it could be worth a little more.

 

That’s just my opinion…

appreciate it! I am having to clean out my aunt’s “valuables” as her executor and she listed this but I can’t find any info anywhere. She has a couple copies and this one is earlier (ST code as opposed to the later SW one she has). Also a few other cool albums like the Stones Some Girls with the original faces and a couple of other banned covers and the Sticky Fingers cover with the working Zipper (although neat its not exactly rare!). 

Guess I will take the lot to a place like Kops records and see what theu say on value….

Thanks again!

Hello, new guy here. I joined basically because I am trying to find out some information about a mispress of the White Album I have.  The matrix numbers seem to say it is a second run from the Jacksonville Illinois Capitol Records plant. 

Anyway, LP 2…side 3 is as it should be…side 4 is labeled correctly for side four, however, it is in reality side 2 of LP 1. 

Has anyone heard of this particular mispress before?

I think my Abbey Road is a miss-pressing…

Hi, I have a copy of revolver which is first press, I’m sure it is, but on one side it has scratched in the run off Paul McCartney and on the other side John Ono Lennon, has anyone come across this as I can’t get any information. If it is a rare occurrence I will photo middle and upload. Also the cover, not in good condition, does not have either a stereo or mono on the front upper right.

 

thanks for any help.

Hi, today while looking around a boot fair I found a copy of ‘Hello, Goodbye / I Am The Walrus ‘ and paid 2€ for it. When I got it home and played it I noticed that ‘Hello, Goodbye ‘ played on both sides. As far as I can tell it’s a Decca pressing. The runout matrix on both sides is 7XCE18433 although the label on what should be ‘I Am The Walrus ‘ says 7XCE18434.

Has anyone else come across this, I would imagine it’s quite rare, does it have any value etc etc?

 

Any info would be appreciated,

I have attached a picture so hopefully it will help. IMG_20210724_190430.jpgImage Enlarger
