It does actually say “Made In Sweden” on the label. But would it have been available to buy in Britain?

Hi @DanIsTheWalrus and welcome to the forum. I’ve moved your post to the Rare Beatles Vinyl Thread to sit with the other posts on this type of subject. Hopefully someone here can help you out.

@DanIsTheWalrus, as a moderator on this forum and as a person who discovered The Beatles only a little over a year ago, I want you to know that all who are geniunely interested in The Beatles and learning more about them are most welcome on this site. We do not shun those with little knowledge; we are glad they are here and eager to learn.

It could be worth something I don’t know, if you know tell me, if not you have no worth to me. Also if anyone knows how much a NEMS bag is worth that would be great. If you don’t know what NEMS was question your presence on this forum.

@DanIsTheWalrus A little charm goes a long way, don’t you find?

If anyone didn’t know what NEMS was, they’d have come to precisely the right place. If they asked a question without being belligerent, people here would be only too happy to help. I wonder how many responses you’ll get to your own query.

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.

Hi everyone

A few years ago I purchased all 3 Anthology albums on vinyl; Still in the shrink wrap and properly stored. So I go home and a few days later decided to listen to them. Each “Anthology” has 3 vinyl records (six sides) per set. Across the board the quality was good, and everything looked and sounded like it was supposed too.

Then came the 3rd and final “Anthology 3 ” set. Quite simply, the artwork, both on the outside, on the inside, down to the center labels of the records themselves (all six of them)  – they were all correct in being what you would get with Anthogy 3. However – ALL of the audio over 3 records, six sides, are from Anthology 1 . Not similar or anything like that … they were the same, again, across all six sides of vinyl. I had previously tried various searches to get some info on what It is; rare mispress , bootleg? I don’t think it’s a bootleg though, just from experience but I can’t rule anything out.

So I wanted to find someplace online where I could perhaps get some answers, and this site seemed like the best. Has anyone heard of this before, or…. well…. anything at all? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Trevor

Hi!

I am new around here although I lurk from time to time. For my very first posting, I was wondering if anyone here was aware of a defective pressing of Sgt. Pepper ‘s that involves the song Good Morning, Good Morning? I have researched information online and I have dated my vinyl copy with this particular defect to a 1971 stereo Apple pressing. On the song Good Morning, Good Morning, just after the background vocals at the beginning of the song, one of the stereo channels drops out, specifically the channel with the horns and backing vocals. This continues until the end of the song and the stereo channel returns. This only occurs on this one track. The only information I have found is that it was traced to one plant, in Jacksonville FL, and apparently it was a defect that existed as far back as the year after release. I was wondering if these defective copies were of any value? I would assume the older defective copies would be the more valuable, but I cannot find any information on the Apple pressings. Thank you all for your time!

I am guessing with “no reply” I am in possession of something unique? Still hoping for some info from fellow Beatle-maniacs. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Welcome to the forum @Wil1972.

 

I have no idea about your pressing but am glad to hear you have discovered some info.

Value-wise I have no idea, however the Beatles market is wide and vast. So who knows. I’d suggest you have a look online and see of there are any places near you or that you can email with a description of your LP and see if they can place even a rough estimate on it.

 

Yip, this whole post is pretty unhelpful.

All the best.

No your reply was helpful. I think I will take your advice and search locally for someone who might be able to shed some light on it. Thanks again! 🙂

The best suggestion I’m able to make, @Wil1972, is to try contacting Bruce Spizer, who has written the most extensive explorations of the variations between different pressings.

If there is a man who would know, that’s Bruce Spizer, and if he hasn’t come across this variation, you can be sure he’d be interested in it.

He has a website which includes contacts details. I’m not saying he would necessarily respond to such a question, but he is certainly the big expert on pressing variations and the most likely person to have an answer.

I think the reason no one had replied to your post is because it fell underneath the other posts before it got approved by the mods. I figure this because I know that I didn’t ever see this thread.

As far as your pressing, I’ve never heard of it, but sure sounds pretty cool. Definitely something that a Beatles fanatic would want to add to their collection.

Thanks for the replies. I will definitely check out the Bruce Spizer site. And I do think it’s a unique piece of Beatle memorabilia. 🙂

Has anyone come across this anomaly on the vinyl pressing of Anthology 3 ?

Are the labels on the records correct?

That is quite interesting. I always think that misprints/pressings are way cool. With this one, I feel like you got ripped off on one hand, but on the other, that record might be worth quite a bit. I could be wrong, but chances are it was just a goof in the manufacturing, so there could be a few other copies like yours, or you could easily have the only one. Because of this, you probably won’t find much online about it.

I’m not sure what that could be worth. It could be worth nothing, because it’s the wrong record, or it could be worth quite a bit, especially if yours is the only copy. I’m not an expert on this stuff, but I’m sure someone else on this forum can tell you more than me.
