This early UK MONO pressing dates from initial March 1963 release on the gold & black Parlophone label: PMC 1202

The disc bears BOTH variations of the gold label with 'Northern Songs Ltd.' publishing credits for tracks 1 & 2 on side 1 and 'Dick James Mus.' credits for tracks 4 & 6 on side 2.

An 'MT' purchase tax code on the side 1 label.

  Matrices: XEX 421-1N & XEX 422-1N

Stamper codes: 2/GL & 1,2/GM

Vinyl weight: 165g

Housed in an early/correct front laminated, tri-flipback 'Ernest J. Day' printed mono cover with the 'Angus McBean' credit in the extreme lower right corner.

Complete with its original poly-lined 'Use Emitex..' inner-sleeve & an original outer cover from Brian Epstein's NEMS record shop in Liverpool.




As you can see there is some wear to the centre holes and around the edges of each label but all of the delicate gold print is present.


Both playing surfaces are clean & glossy with the only significant blemish being a 1cm light, non-feelable mark on side 2. Apart from that and a few harmless wispy marks beneath halogen light, there is little else to fault.


All tracks play cleanly & clearly with no groove/playwear distortion or crackle. The aforementioned mark causes a few soft ticks in the band before and on the introduction to 'Baby It's You' but there are no further audible distractions of note elsewhere.

Cover: VERY GOOD -

A little tired and showing its age with general wrinkles and bends. The lower seam has been repaired but otherwise it is as seen in the images. 

NEMS Cover: As seen
