With 'Her Majesty'
**LOVELY EARLY 1st pressing**
(With misaligned Apple plus original PATENTS APPLIED FOR inner too)
Fantastic 1969 Beatles UK LP. This was the Beatles' 12th LP, released on the 26th September. It was also the last official Beatles release that was recorded by them. Staying at number one for almost 18 consecutive weeks, it was only knocked off by The Rolling Stones' "Let It Bleed."

A LOVELY EARLY PRESSING HERE
QUALITY HEAVYWEIGHT 148g VINYL
Lovely FLAT & SHINY vinyl. She only carries a few very light and whispy marks-providing some light and only occasional background noise on only a couple of tracks..
After I cleaned her onmy Pro-Ject VCS MkII Vacuum Record cleaner I had the utter joy of listening to her-all the way through....
I found Maxwells Hammer superbly clear and even heard a couple of arrangements in the background I hadn't heard before-which always gives me a smile :). The light pops were only very, very occasional and were not offensive at all as they weren't very frequent at all.
CERTAINLY NO JUMPS OR SKIPS ON MY FOCUS ONE DECK WITH SMK ARM AND AUDIO TECHNICA STYLUS FITTED.
There are a handful of very light spindle marks, seen when angled towards the light...With barely any centrall hole wear.
PLEASE SEE THE DETAILED IMAGES PROVIDED
NO "Sold in the UK..." text.
Outer text begins: "Apple Records all rights.."
"Mfd. in U.K." text. The labels are nice and vibrant.
This is the 1st pressing DARKER version of this Apple label.
Has the '33 1/3' to the extreem left.
The last song credit DOES HAVE "Her Majesty" on the Side 2 label.
WOULD FRAME WELL.
The cover of this LP is the rarer cover; with the alignment of the Apple Logo on the back NOT being inline with the text.
The spine remains lovely and strong, as well as legible.
There are around 5 crescents of spidering near the opening to the front and around 6 or 7 to the back near the opening.
Strangely the laminate didn't quite reach the opening and fell short by about 5mm-strange factory defect.,
The corners remain strong with just light rubbing and knocking, nothing terrible at all.
SOLID VG EXAMPLE.
The alignment of the Apple Logo on the back is OUT OF LINE with the text.
*FRAME THIS BEAUTY*
ORIGINAL "PATENTS APPLIED FOR" inner...These were only issued with the very 1st pressings.
This one is in TOP condition.
There isn't even any discolouration to the paper!
Certainly done her job in keeping this very early slab of vinyl in tip-top condition!
