Beatles lp Black & Gold Please Please Me Stereo 1st UK press
This is the original first UK pressing of Please Please Me by The Beatles in STEREO 3042 with Dick James credits. The vinyl has only a few light surface marks on either side of the vinyl, and the labels have a few spindle marks, the very rare Ernest J. Day & Co. Ltd. printed front laminated flipback sleeve has only a couple of very minor laminate creases to the front cover with minor shelf wear to the bottom edge and the corners are showing slight signs of rounding. There is NO writing, tears, etc.

The Matrix numbers are Side 1 - YEX 94-1 and Side 2 - YEX 95-2

On side 1 at 9 oclock it's an upside down G and at 3 oclock it has an upside down number 1, on side 2 at 9 oclock it has a number 1 and at 3 oclock it has an R stamped into the dead wax area. So it looks like the side 1 label has been put on upside down at the factory, which probably makes this even rarer.

The rice paper lined EMITEX inner sleeve is in Very Good condition with NO splits, writing, etc.

Both vinyl and outer sleeve held at various angles in Daylight, Sunlight, moonlight, 100W Bulb and Strictly Graded using Record Collectors Grading system.

Side 1: VG+
Side 2: VG+

The vinyl lies perfectly flat on the turntable

I have just played both sides of the album and despite some crackles and pops mainly between tracks, this easily grades 8 out of 10
