Beatles - I Want To Hold Your Hand UK Red/White *DEMO*
THE BEATLES - 'I WANT TO HOLD YOU HAND'/'THIS BOY'
1963 UK RED & WHITE **DEMONSTRATION** 45**ULTRA-RARE & 100% GENUINE**
One of the earliest & most seldom seen of The Beatles UK demos, this 1963 example is on the red & white Parlophone 'A' label: R 5084
Both sides carry the correct 'oversized' labels with a large red 'A' on the 'I Want To Hold You Hand' label.
A single letter tax/price code 'K' is visible in the centre of the 'A' side label.
Housed in an original & genuine 'Top Pop' EMI/Parlophone promotional sleeve.
Matrix numbers: 7XCE 17559-1N & 7XCE 17560-1N
Stamper numbers: 3/H & 1/TL
'KT' codes are also present in both run-outs.
Both labels are bright with just some minor playwear in around the centre hole of the 'A' side label.
The letter 'E' is written in red ball-point pen on the 'A' side label but the 'This Boy' label is clean and unmarked.
Visual: VERY GOOD
Both sides are very clean & bright but bear a few light fingernail marks and the occaisional stylus scratch but no deep or feelable marks.
Close & careful inspection directly under a halogen desk lamp reveals some wispy paper hairlines but no further marks or wear.
Both sides lie 100% flat both sides on the turntable with no dishing or warping.
Audio: VERY GOOD PLUS
This disc has recieved frequent but careful play and there is no significant deterioration or damage to the sound quality on either side.
Both run-ins play with some normal light crackle but there are no clicks, jumps, repeats or any other major faults.
An extremely rare & respectable copy.
