Description

This early UK STEREO disc dates from initial November 1963 release on the black & yellow Parlophone label: PCS 3045

Both labels carry 'The Parlophone Co..' worded rim texts and have the 'Jobete' publishing credit for the song 'Money'.

A 'KT' purchase tax code is present in the centre of the side 2 label.

Matrices: YEX 110-2 & YEX 111-2

Stamper codes: 2/RP & 3/GL

Vinyl weight: 158g

Housed in thick card stock, front laminated, tri-flipback 'Garrod & Lofthouse' printed cover with a small front 'stereo' indicator.

This cover has the earliest 'You Really Gotta Hold On Me' spelling on the rear tracklisting.

Complete with its original 'Patents Applied For'  inner-sleeve.

N.B. This copy was purchased in 1966 at a time when EMI had excess stock of 1st pressing discs. These were then coupled with newly made 'small' stereo indicator covers.

 

CONDITION

Visual:

Side 1: MINT -  Side 2: EXCELLENT

This clean, unworn disc has rarely been outside of its cover these past 50 years and is free from any surface scuffs of scratches. There is however some clouding to the side 2 (only) playing surface caused by storage but this does not affect sound or play.

Audio: MINT -

Exceptionally clean & unworn sound quality throughout with no traces of any groove/playwear or any crackle, ticks, clicks or any other such issues.

Cover: EXCELLENT +

A truly 1st class example constructed from thick, quality card stock and unlike the later thinner, late-'60s variations. The front panel is clean & unyellowed with an undamaged laminate, free from any 'thumbnails' or creasing. All corners are sharp and unbumped and both opening edges clean & sharp. The exposed rear panel is pristine and totally unblemished. All flipbacks are fully intact and both seams and the spine are in perfect condition.

Inner-sleeve: EXCELLENT

Clean & flat with light handling wear but no writing, tears or seam splits.
