I think my dad's got all the original UK singles, from "Love Me Do" to "Let It Be", Magical Mystery Tour, and all the albums, although instead of With The Beatles he's got a Canadian import, possibly Meet The Beatles. Early White Album too, with a serial number.

Pity about the covers though but weaked nonetheless. I think in the UK 'Magical Mystery' was released as an album. Me i'm looking for the double EP 45rpm. For the 'White Album' there is one test to know if you really got a '68 pressing (now that's the one that's really valuable) and that is if you take the record out from the top of the sleeve it's a real '68 if not it's a '73 reissue onwards.

Nah, in the UK it was the double EP (which counted in the singles chart, and was only kept off #1 by "Hello Goodbye").

As for his White Album, I'm 99.9% sure it's a '68 pressing. He's a massive Beatles fan, and always got the albums as soon as they came out. It's got a serial number, and a relatively low one considering how many were printed.

Now I remember the 'Magical Mystery Tour' album was intended only for the US market with all those added tracks. Us Europeans had that fantastic double EP for Chrismas. For the White I told you the trick is if it's cut up not on the sides where you take the record out you're 100% sure that you got a '68 because they stopped that sleeve version in '73. One remark is the CD generation lost the poster as a whole. In the CD it's a booklet. Not to mention the JPGR pictures

I think my dad lost the poster. He lost all the cut-out bits from Pepper as well. But then he was only a teenager. It's lucky his Beatles records managed to escape when his brother's guinea pig went on the rampage. He lost a lot of vinyl that day.
