You are bidding on an unplayed copy of the original vinyl pressing of the Beatles LP “CASUALTIES” issued in 1980. The label is a “mock-up” of the black Capitol style (SPRO-9469) and the back cover indicates “For Promotional Use Only Not For Sale”.

As a long-time collector, whenever possible, I always purchased two copies of “these types” of discs and stored away a second copy in an anti-static inner sleeve. This is one of those records - it’s never been on a turntable.

On the heels of “Collectors Items”, this came out with the same basic format: alternate mixes of commercial releases that were supposedly not available in the US - at that time. The front cover is the uncropped photo of the “Butcher Cover”. Tracks with descriptions as listed on sleeve:

Side One:

PLEASE PLEASE ME (Mono with the correct “I know / never really try...”) I WANT TO HOLD YOUR HAND (Alt. US stereo mix) MONEY (Dry mono mix) A HARD DAY’S NIGHT (True Stereo) I’LL CRY INSTEAD (True stereo of longer version) TICKET TO RIDE (True Stereo) YES IT IS (Mono single mix) DAY TRIPPER (Alt. stereo mix) I’M ONLY SLEEPING (Mono mix from French EP)

Side Two:

STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER (Alt. stereo mix) I AM THE WALRUS (Backing tracks) ONLY A NORTHERN SONG (Mono) REVOLUTION (Mono) HER MAJESTY (w/ missing chord) LET IT BE (Mono)

The jacket is in beautiful shape, retaining it’s glossy finish. Note: There is a very small (1/2” x 3/8”) sticker “footprint” on the upper left corner of the back cover - otherwise NM.

LP will be sent in a clear, resealable polypropylene protective sleeve and securely mailed in a made-for-LP box.

Payment by Paypal only.

Shipping within the US: USPS Priority Mail only w/delivery confirmation:

1 LP = $5.00 2 LPs (or 1 double LP set) = $6.00 Canada via Airmail = add $1.00 to above rates Other International = please inquire before bidding (prefer Global Priority if available)
