The Beatles - The Beatles
This fantastic copy of The Beatles eponymous studio album, known commonly as 'The White Album', comes with the extremely sought after 1st pressing Apple Record label without 'An EMI Recording' text on all four sides.
This exceptional record is housed within the holy grail of sleeves for most Beatles collectors; a 1st edition top opening sleeve with an extremely low 7 digit serial number: No. 0031719.
This album is complete with all original inner: two die-cut black inner sleeves, 4 photo card images of the Beatles, and the large foldout poster with song lyrics on the flip-side.
Serial number: PMC 7067 & PMC 7068
Matrix number: XEX 709 - 1 / XEX 710 - 1 / XEX 711 - 1 / XEX 712 - 1 /
Mother Stampers: 3 TA / 3 TH / 2 L / 1 A
Vinyl Weight: 165g
Vinyl: VERY GOOD +
The labels are bright and clean without writing. Only very light spindle marks can be seen to all four sides.
Visual: VERY GOOD +
The vinyl surface retains the original deep gloss factory finish. In bright daylight several light surface marks are visible to all four sides. Under a halogen desk light very subtle signs of mildew residue can be seen in one or two small areas.
Sound Quality: VERY GOOD +
The audio is superb! There are quiet lead-ins to all sides and only mild static in between songs. All tracks play through with the punch and vigour that is noted of the heavy weight 1st press monaural recording. There are no obtrusive pops, no skips and no jumps. A great listen throughout.
