The Beatles Please Please Me Album 1st UK Pressing Mono

Featured here “The Beatles Please Please Me” Album 1st UK Pressed in Mono from my personal collection of Beatles albums that I have acumilated over a period of more than 45 years. I have over 1000 Beatles UK albums and this is one of my prized possesions. To have and own an original 1st UK pressing of the Beatles debut mono album released in 1962 is a Beatles collectors dream, especially in this condition.

The matrix

Side 1.”XEX 421-1N”

Side 2. ”XEX 422-1N”

The Mother Stampers

Side 1.”1” ”A” (LOOK! ”1” to 1” Stampers pressed from the earliest mother!!)

Side 2. ”1” ”GR” (LOOK! ”1” to 1” Stampers pressed from the earliest mother!!)

Unique Qualities of this 1st issue!

Of course the first thing to note is that this 1st issue features the Gold & Black Parlophone labels, but only the 1st issues have ”Dick James Mus Co” publishing credits for the tracks ”Please Please Me”, ”I Saw Her Standing There”,”Misery”,Do You Want To Know A Secret” and ”There’s A Place” later 2nd issues feature these tracks credited to Northern songs!

The Cover

The other important feature of this earliest issue is the cover! These are thick card type covers printed by Earnest J Day & Co ltd these are laminated at the front only and feature the tri flipbacks at the rear! Importantly only the earliest issues feature the text ”Photo By Angus McBean” furthest to the right, than later subsequent issues (notice from my photos that the beginning of this text starts just after the ‘S” above) this is only seen on these early issues, I have often seen these swapped for later 4th press covers. This cover is correct and the original earliest issue!

Joss Stone and Jeff Beck Live at Mama Stones

Joss Stone and Jeff Beck Live at Mama Stones

I found some old photos that I took from a gig at Mama Stones in Exeter Devon dated Thursday 13th 2012.

I had been meaning to upload them earlier, but oh well here they are, only four years late!
The music was awesome there were only about 200-300 people at the small night club.

We were very lucky to be standing only about 10 feet away from the Artists.

More images can be viwed at full screen at my gallery here

What Is A First Pressed Vinyl Record?

What Is A First Pressed Vinyl Record?

So here is a question that I have been asked time and time again. I have decided to write a short article about it How Do We Define A 1st Pressing – Pressed Vintage Vinyl Record?

A 1st pressing record is a record that was pressed from the 1st original masters. There seems to be some controversy between record collectors of what is a 1st pressing as opposed to a ‘1st issue’.

I had written a couple of articles previously, about recod stampers and matrix numbers along with a brief article explaining how a vinyl is made which many have found very useful. So In my latest article I discuss more about 1st pressings and why we even need to know if we have a first pressing.
