The Beatles Please Please Me 2ND Stereo Gold Parlophone PCS 3042 UK


 

THE BEATLES "PLEASE PLEASE ME"

1st UK GOLD - STEREO PRESS with the corrected " NORTHERN SONGS " Credits.

This Parlophone STEREO GOLD label is arguably MUCH MUCH RARER than the first "Dick James" versions as so few of these were pressed.

One quick look at all the gold Stereo's that have been on eBay over the past year will show you that they are or have all been Dick James versions.  Not one corrected Northern Songs version!.

THIS IS WITHOUT DOUBT ONE OF THE MOST FABLED AND DESIRED OF ALL THE BEATLES' VINYL!.

WITH VERY FEW OF THESE RELEASED WITH THIS LABEL, IT IS USUALLY A STARTING POINT FOR ANY SERIOUS COLLECTOR.

ORIGINAL EARLY UK GOLD LP'S ARE ALWAYS SOUGHT AFTER (AND THEREFORE QUITE EXPENSIVE) AS SO FEW WERE PRESSED. THIS ONE IS FROM THE VERY VERY FIRST BATCH PRESSED WITH THE FIRST EVER STAMPERS.


PCS 3402

YEX 94/95-1-1

STAMPERS:  1G on side one & 1R on side two.

THE HEAVY WEIGHT VINYL LOOKS AMAZING AND HASN'T LOST MUCH OF IT'S SHEEN. I WOULD CLASS IT AS VG , AS IT DOES HAVE QUITE A FEW LIGHT SUPERFICIAL SCRATCHES WHICH CAUSES A FEW LIGHT STATIC SOUNDS THROUGHOUT, MOST NOTABLY BEFORE "BOYS", BUT PLAYS ABSOLUTELY FINE OTHERWISE WITH NO SKIPS OR JUMPS. THIS STATIC MAY PLAYOUT, BUT DIDN'T REALLY WANT TO PLAY MORE THAN ONCE.

THE GLOSSY VINYL IS PERFECTLY FLAT WITH NO WARPING AND NO WRITING.

ON LISTENING TO THIS, IT SOUNDS GREAT, AS DO THE BEATLES THEMSELVES, AND EVEN THOUGH I DO MAKE A POINT OF LISTENING TO ALL OR MOST THAT I LIST, I PLAY VERY CAREFULLY ON A CORRECTLY SET UP REGA PLANAR 3 (ie,GOOD RECORD PLAYER).  THE AUDIO IS AS CLEAR AND VIBRANT AS WHEN IT WAS FIRST PRESSED NEARLY 50 YEARS AGO. I WOULD BE HAPPY TO GRADE AS AN EASY VG TO VG+.

THE CORRECT " E J DAY"  GOLD SLEEVE HERE, IS WAY ABOVE AVERAGE AND WERE NOTORIOUS FOR GRADUALLY FALLING TO PIECES AS THEY WERE SO FRAGILE. THIS ONE IS STILL VERY PRESENTABLE AND WOULD FRAME VERY WELL. THE CREASE AT THE TOP IS MORE OF A LAMINATE CREASE AND THE BOTTOM FLAP DAMAGE IS SUPERFICIAL AND HASN'T COME THROUGH THE CARDBOARD WHICH IS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE FOR WHAT IT IS AND IS COMPLETE.

THE EMITEX "MADE IN ENGLAND" INNER IS PRESENT AND IS IN AN EXCELLENT SUPERB CONDITION ALSO WITH THE FIRST "PATENTS APPLIED FOR" WORDING.

WITH ONLY A VERY LIMITED NUMBER OF COPIES TO HAVE BEEN PRODUCED AT THE VERY BEGINNING, THESE GOLD ALBUMS WERE USUALLY ALWAYS PLAYED TO DEATH BY 1964!.

FINDING ONE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION OR HIGHER IS BECOMING MORE DIFFICULT AND THIS PARTICULAR COPY IS IN A VERY COLLECTABLE SHAPE. THIS HAS OBVIOUSLY BEEN WELL LOOKED AFTER BUT HAS STILL BEEN PLAYED, AND BECAUSE RECORDS WERE MADE SO WELL IN THOSE DAYS, THIS STILL SOUNDS FANTASTIC.

THE GOLD LABELS ARE CLEAR AND BRIGHT WHICH CAN BE SEEN IN THE PHOTOS THOUGH DOES HAVE SOME SPINDLE WEAR (AND NOT TOUCHED UP WITH A FELT MARKER!).

 THIS IS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE ONE OF THE MOST COLLECTABLE BEATLES ALBUM OF ALL TIME.

Would prefer pick up, but will ship internationally. FedEx Insured Shipping costs to some parts of the world vary a lot, so I may ask for additional postage to the £4 quoted but will only be what it costs to send etc.







































Usual methods, but will accept time payments for some of the bigger things. Please ask.

Shipping by FedEx Insured, Tracked Intl Priority when available.

I accept returns for all things except where stated clearly. Thank you

I am and have always considered myself a Beatlefreak and collector. I am not a dealer, but have many treasures I've collected over the years that I have now decided to part with.
