This legendary debut Beatles album was released on Friday 22nd March 1963 on the Parlophone label. It topped the charts on 11th May 1963 where it stayed for 30 weeks until it was knocked off the number one spot by With The Beatles. Much of the album was recorded in just one day under the guidance of George Martin. Unusually the mono edition was issued six weeks before the stereo copies. At the time of release of the album the design of the Parlophone label was in a transition period. The label was being changed from a black and gold design to a black and yellow design. Very few mono copies of Please Please Me were issued with the black and gold labels and have become highly sought after by collectors and when found they are usually in average condition at best due to the amount of parties they were taken to. The Beatles FIRST official L. For the only time the mono version was issued six weeks BEFORE the stereo version.
This album contained the A and B sides of their first two singles plus ten new songs all recorded in one incredible session at Abbey Road. The album took exactly six months to pass the sales figure of 250000 and went on to sell over half a million in the UK with world sales of almost two million. It still holds the record for the longest continuous stay at Number One in the UK album charts. The cover photo was taken at EMIs Manchester Square headquarters by Angus McBean and the sleeve notes are by Tony Barrow. Whilst trying to think of catchy names for their first album release George Martin offered the title Off The Beatle Track but this was bypassed.Martin clearly liked the name and used it himself in 1964. MONO/STEREO DIFFERENCES Please Please Me - The stereo version has John making a mistake in the words of the final verse which causes him to chuckle in the final chorus. This is not heard in the mono version. CONDITION Labels - The labels are in fantastic condition. There is just light wear around the spindle hole and a small label mark to the top clear of any text wiht no tears or writing on either side of the labels.
The gold print is striking & clearly legible. This is the first pressing with this label design. The first pressing credits Dick James Mus. Co for Please Please Me I Saw Her Standing There Misery Do You Want To Know A Secret & Theres A Place. The second pressing credits Northern Songs for I Saw Her Standing There Do You Want To Know A Secret Theres A Place & Misery but retains the Dick James Mus.
Co credit for Please Please Me. The vinyl is in VG condition; there are several faint hairlines or light surface scuffs apparent on both sides with a raised hairline on side One which only results in a few soft pops & the wax still shines nicely.Due to the deep grooves & superior quality of British 1960s vinyl pressings any wear is rendered purely cosmetic. As the music itself is not exclusive this is less of an issue but the record plays cleanly with no other major pops or clicks. Some level of burring is occasionally evident in the more vibrant passages but there is no excessive distortion & surface noise is kept to a minimum. The Matrix Numbers are XEX 421 - 1N on side one & XEX 422 - 1N on side two. The front of the laminated flipback picture sleeve is in decent condition with rich vibrant colours & no fading. It features a large MONO logo on the far right hand side of the sleeve This particular example is carefully graded VG. There appears to have been a repair to the top flipback which is only really noticeable due to the first inch nearest to opening coming away slightly & what appears to be a little glue discolouration although the reverse still looks great with all the text clear & legible There is no writing & the spine still looks superb.
All in all a nice VG copy & always extremely sought after enabling you to complete your collection at a very advantageous price! I Saw Her Standing There 02.Anna (Go To Him) 04. Do You Want To Know A Secret 12. A Taste Of Honey 13. Les Beatles Los Beatles Die Beatles Fab Four.
