The Beatles Please Please Me Complete Stereo Run PCS3042 & web domain address

The Beatles entire Please Please Me STEREO LP run. From the infamous "Gold Stereo Parlophone " with the Dick James & Northern Songs credits ,to the ultra rare last 60's through to the 86 reissue and more!
Since I first started collecting Beatles records many many years ago, I was intrigued about the numbers and letters that were stamped into the run off grooves.
After collecting quite a few Please please me's, I managed to make a bit of sense with the running order of the stampers and how the actual labels sometimes changed with the times and when new stampers appeared. I also managed to find (or catch) a few transitional copies that had a side 1 of a certain press coupled with a side 2 from another press.

Eventually after a lot of work and time spent collecting, I decided to put up my own website that dealt with the evolution of The Beatles' very first long playing record "Please Please Me". This was simply because there was no information about this anywhere on the net. Even the Rare Record Collector's Guide has only eight or so different labels listed when in fact there over 30 variations throughout the 60's alone!. This website is called and is for sale on here today with these records. If you just want the records then that's fine, make an offer and ask me to change the listing, otherwise if you are a web designer and a Beatlefreak, then this may be for you!!

I have set to deal with all the Please Please Me labels that are out there and have been updating it for the past 4 or 5 years and have had many comments and praise in regards to helping fellow collectors make sense of these things.

All these labels are on this site with detailed explanations (for the Stereo & Mono runs).

Incidentally, I have the complete mono run on another eBay listing please see!.

When putting this auction together I was faced with the decision of selling EVERY label pressing variation, or just an example (albeit my best copy) of each particular press. I decided to list it all. Every stereo pressing known and unknown, every mis-pressing and a few bonus transitional copies thrown in the mix to make it interesting for everybody. The conditions vary from near mint, excellent to only good if there is only one example available, but rest assured, I will make sure they all have the best covers and inners I have Including every different variation from the very first E J Day gold covers to and including 5 or 6 rare "mid-sized logo" and all the Garrod & Lofthouse variations too!

I guarantee you will never see an auction quite like this again!!

I think at the last count that makes 53 records, all with correct sleeves and correct inners for the years etc.

Some of these are one offs that will take an age if ever to find another.

Years and Years of hard work, yours to buy for a modest sum :)

Sorry about the terrible photo's but pretty much all the actual labels can be found on the web address.
