Hello all, I just received a French issued Beatles EP on Odeon / EMI ( MEO 107 ) Face 1: We Can Work It Out , You Won’t See Me .  Face 2: Day Tripper , Norwegian Wood . BUT …. Day Tripper and Norwegian Wood play on BOTH sides of the EP.

Can I finally retire now that I have found one of the rarest Beatles EPs ever ????

Many of these floating around ? Worth anything ?

Thanks, Mike.

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.

I just got a hold of a Stereo Beatles & Frank Ifield record (with no cover-just the record) Nice shape.

In comparing all the Matrix/Job numbers to the version I found online (the What! version), I
found one discrepancy. On side 1 there is no ’S’ after the 64-3852 number.

So I’m trying to determine if I have one of the super rare ones, or just another semi-rare What! version. Do you know if the records themselves differed between the two?

Also, since it’s missing the cover what do you think is a fair asking price?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.side-1-label.jpgImage Enlarger

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

I have the same version as you, with the DAYS instead of DAY’S spelling on side one. My copy is RR4M 0474 on Side 1 and RR4M 0475 on Side 2.

Greetings, I recently got a copy of a vinyl Blue Album , the 1976 Capitol Records pressing, scratched but playable. I played it and was very confused when I got to disc two side one! That is supposed to have tracks Back In The USSR , While My Guitar Gently Weeps , Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da , Get Back , Don’t Let Me Down , The Ballad Of John And Yoko , and Old Brown Shoe .  Instead it actually has the tracks from the Red Album disc two side one: Help , You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away , We Can Work It Out , Day Tripper , Drive My Car , and Norwegian Wood . I guess this is a mis-pressing? Are these common? Could it be worth money to a fanatic?  I’m not a fanatic 🙂  Thanks in advance.

p.s. thanks to the moderator for moving this post to the “rare” forum, I am new here and didn’t notice that one

“Vinyl sleeve of a french Revolver press with an unknown man on the back”

Hi everybody,

First of all, you can move my post to another part of the forum if it doesn’t belong here. I put it in the Revolver section because it seemed the most appropriate.

I bought a copy of the Revolver album on vinyl.
It’s a pressing from the 70s (catalog number 2C 062 – 04097).

It appears here on discogs:

https://www.discogs.com/releas…..s-Revolver

My version is weird. A photo of an unknown person appears on the back. The photo is not glued to the sleeve, but is printed on it 2 times. Once partially erased (it’s printed like that, the sleeve hasn’t been rubbed), and once normally.

I can’t find anything on this strange version of Revolver . Do any of you know it?

Thanks for you informationsPXL_20231101_153108380.jpgImage Enlarger

original thread title: HELP : White Album – 1st pressing MONO misprint numbered… matrix/runout numbers?…

Hello everyone, I have just acquired the Beatles White Album and I am trying to find out exactly which pressing it is. I thought i was buying the 1st pressing of 1968 misprint numbered mono (https://www.discogs.com/fr/rel…..he-Beatles ) and for the moment nothing contradicts it (no Emi mentioned, “Sold in U.K..”, etc…) BUT the end of the matrix numbers don’t appear on the listing on the discogs page. And i don’t find it on the matrix lists for other copies as well…
Could it be another variant of this pressing not mentioned? How can I be sure?
For information, the runouts are these:
side A. XEX 709 – 1 P 1
side B. XEX 710 – 1 RH 7
side C. XEX 711 – 1 TH 3
side D. XEX 712 – 1 GGG 6

Thank you so much for any help…

Are you sure it’s not just a rubber stamp or otherwise printed on by a previous owner?

I recently found this picture disc originally released in 1984 from the 20th Anniversary Picture Disc series.  It has the matrices: Matrix / Runout (A etched then stamped): RP+5160+A ORLAKE Penthouse. Matrix / Runout (B etched then stamped): RP+5160+B ORLAKE Penthouse = all correspond to this release. Suggest it is a mispressed version of the record.  Is this a one-off or a known mispress?  Does it have any value to Beatles collectors?
