THE BEATLES: ALL 12 SINGLE VINYL EP'S

All have been cleaned and played on my ION turntable and their are no jumps or skips. Each EP is graded below in line with my Record Condition Guidelines which are printed for reference at the end. Tracks and any specific points of interest/rarity about individual EP's are highlighted, together with technical data obtained from www.yokono.co.uk such as pressing numbers and dates.

RECORD CONDITION GUIDELINES
(Updated October 2018)
The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or
deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric
sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records advertised as sealed
or un-played should be mint. It is now rare to find a mint 1960's vinyl.
A nearly perfect record. The record may show some minor signs of having been
played, but there is no lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging
might have slight wear and/or slight creasing.
3. Very Good
The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major
deterioration in sound quality, despite some noticeable surface marks, the
occasional light scratch and maybe a few mild crackles. Normal wear and tear on
the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is acceptable.
A record in good condition should play without skipping. The record has been
played many times so that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps
with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents may suffer from
folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discoloration, etc.
The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly
and displays considerable surface noise; it may even jump. Has hissing and
crackling sounds. The cover and contents will be torn, stained and in bad
The record is probably unplayable and in very bad
condition. The original sleeve/cover is
probably missing. Collectors value only. If you have not got a copy a rare
record is better than none.
Do Remember....1960’s and 1970’s vinyl is now up to
60 years old and the above should be read with this consideration in mind!
All my records are carefully researched and are authentic to the best of my
knowledge, there are no guarantees, but any questions please ask.
