Description

 THE BEATLES PMC 1202 "PLEASE PLEASE ME" ORIGINAL BLACK & GOLD FIRST ISSUE IN MARCH 1963
RELEASED IN MARCH 1963 ( 56 YEARS AGO) MOST OF THESE ALBUMS WERE PLAYED TO DEATH ON CHEAP PORTABLE RECORD PLAYERS BY TEENAGERS OF THE DAY. MOST COPIES OF THIS FIRST ALBUM ARE SCRATCHED AND SO BADLY WORN (LOOK ON EBAY) I WOULD NOT GIVE THEM THE TIME OF DAY. NOW AND THEN YOU FIND A NEAR PERFECT COPY OF THE VINYL AND YOU THEN REALISE WHAT ALL THE FUSS WAS ABOUT.
 LETS TALK ABOUT THIS COPY OF THE VINYL. I HAVE PLAY TESTED THIS ON A £70,000 AUDIO SYSTEM PLAYING LOUD THROUGH 11 SPEAKERS AND A SUBWOOFER AND I COULD NOT BELEIVE MY EARS. CRISP, PUNCHY SOUND WITH SILENT SURFACES SO ALL YOU COULD HEAR WAS THE BEATLES. NO POPS, NO TICKS, (I LIE, - JUST TWO VERY FAINT ONES AT THE VERY END OF "ASK ME WHY" ON SIDE ONE). YOU COULD ONLY BETTER THIS WITH A FACTORY FRESH MINT COPY, AND THEN YOU MIGHT END UP WITH PRESSING FAULTS. THIS VINYL IS A TRULY FANTASTIC AUDIO COPY THAT WOULD DO ANY COLLECTION JUSTICE. SIMPLY SUPERB. EARLIEST MATRIX NUMBERS -  SIDE 1 XEX 421-1N - SIDE 2 XEX 422-1N
NOW LETS TALK ABOUT THE LABELS. ORIGINAL PARLOPHONE BLACK & GOLD LABELS. VERY LITTLE SIGNS OF USE. SIDE TWO HAS THE "MT" TAX CODE AND AGAIN SIMPLY NO SIGN OF SPINDLE MARKS WHICH INDICATES PREVIOUS OWNER WAS ULTRA CAREFUL WHEN PLAYING THIS RECORD. McCARTNEY-LENNON NOTATIONS AND DICK JAMES MUSIC CREDITS WHICH YOU WOULD EXPECT TO FIND ON THE FIRST ISSUE LABELS. LETTERING IS CRISP AND CLEAR.
NOW LETS TALK ABOUT THE INNER SLEEVE. CRISP AND CLEAN WITH NO WRITING OR RIPS OR CREASES. THE ORIGINAL "USE EMITEX" WITH RICE PAPER INNER SLEEVE FROM THE EARLY 1960'S. RICE PAPER INNER SLEEVE IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE USUAL PLASTIC/POLYTHENE LINERS CAN CAUSE ACID MARKS ON RECORD SURFACE DURING LONG PERIODS OF STORAGE. THESE ACID MARKS CAN DETERIORATE THE AUDIO.
FINALLY LETS TALK ABOUT THE OUTER COVER. ORIGINAL FLIP BACK EARLIEST "ERNEST J. DAY & CO. LTD." COVER WITH NO WRITING OR RIPS. CORNERS SHOW SIGNS OF SMALL "DINGS" BUT THEN WOULDN'T YOU AFTER 56 YEARS. CORRECT POSITION FOR ANGUS McBEAN NOTATION ON FRONT BOTTOM RIGHT OF COVER. NO LAMINATE LIFTING, JUST A COUPLE OF MINOR LAMINATE CREASES. BACK SPINE IN EXCELLENT++ CONDITION AS PER PHOTOGRAPH.
BONUS - IN ADDITION I ENCLOSE WITH THIS RECORD AN ORIGINAL BAG FROM THE MUSIC STORE (NEMS - LIVERPOOL) OF THE BEATLES MANAGER, BRIAN EPSTEIN.
A GREAT CHANCE TO BECOME THE OWNER OF POSSIBLY ONE OF THE VERY BEST COPIES OF THIS ICONIC RECORD - CERTAINLY UNBEATABLE AUDIO REPRODUCTION.
