THE BEATLES - "White Album" (ULTRA RARE Australian MONO pressing on the Apple label - PMCO 7067/68)
This is the very rare 1968 Australian MONO release of "The Beatles". According to several Australian collectors no more than 5000 copies of this record were sold!!! These records were made from the UK stampers and have the XEX 709-1, XEX 710-1, XEX 711-1 and XEX 712-1 matrix numbers. The cover is the Australian version with a mono sticker on the back. This particular copy is numbered A 45322 on the front cover!
record:Side 1: VG+ (some visible marks, scuffs and hairlines, no deep scratches, minor surface noise, clean labels)Side 2: G/F (The problem is the first song on this side: There are two deep scratches on "Martha My Dear" and the record skips 7-8 times during this song. There is another skip at the very beginning of "I'm So Tired". The other songs on this side play just fine... BUT "Martha My Dear" is virtually unlistenable! Just saying to avoid disappointment!!!)Side 3: VG (some superficial marks, scuffs and hairlines, no deep scratches, minor surface noise, clean labels)Side 4: VG (some visible marks, scuffs and hairlines, no deep scratches, minor surface noise, clean labels)
cover: VG (original top opening, mono sticker on back, overall in very good condition, but the spine is split at the top (5cm) and the bottom (3cm))
inner sleeves:VG- (original black inner sleeves, some creasing, some seam splits)
portraits:EX+ (the four portraits look great, no creasing, tears or writing!!)
poster:VG+ (some minor wear and tear, two small 1cm splits, this is the rare CENSORED first edition!!!)
