BAD COMPANY (feat. PAUL RODGERS of FREE)
BEATLES...above the very first edition in mono without the EMI credits on the label. Was immediatly changed to:...as I have said before, only showing my favourite LP makes sense. Wonder if I get an at last EX version of it sometimes. What have the kids done to their LPs back then?... But almost all Beatles albums tend to be overgraded condition-wise on the known marketplaces...that's a bit annoying...(sale of VG as EX unfortunately not uncommon, except for the price)...
...ok, here are two more to show. It all began with that one in 1963...on the "eight star", original black/gold Parlophone label......not affordable as an UK originial in at least EX condition. The one above is from New Zealand: Great sound, much less pressed, thick vinyl, cheaper price, original matrix, and from 1963 as well...almost the same counts for the Australian version below...and the label is even a little bit more similar to the UK version color-wise......and a little step closer to the original is the seldom seen black & gold variation from Denmark (printed in 1963 and has an original first UK cover as well)...The Australian and Danish version do have
Matrix / Runout (Side A stamp at 6 o'clock): XEX 421-1N
Matrix / Runout (Side A stamp at 9 o'clock): 1
Matrix / Runout (Side B stamp at 6 o'clock): XEX 422-1N
Matrix / Runout (Side B stamp at 9 o'clock): 4
while the New Zealand version has
Matrix / Runout (Label A): XEX-421
Matrix / Runout (Label B): XEX-422
There is an insanely rare stereo version of this LP from the UK as well, a black/gold printed label version with a stereo banner on the label. The only version in existence to my knowledge, looking very similar is again an Australian version, printed on black/silver labels at the beginning of 1964:Matrix / Runout (Runout A, Stamped): YEX 94-1
Matrix / Runout (Runout B, Stamped): YEX 95-1
The very same as the UK original.
The following one has a cover which set new standards in design and/or style..in 1963...(i.m.o. the best LP cover of the Beatles ever)......very first pressing as shown above was in 1963 in the UK on the "new" styled Parlophone label. In Denmark the first pressing was still on the "old" style Parlophone label...very nice looking and desirable......matrix on side one is XEX 447-1N and on side two XEX 448-1N in the UK and in Denmark. Also an original UK LP cover was given to the danish version. Some I-net sources say, that original UK stampers were used in Denmark. That makes these very old but affordable versions even more desirable...
