The Beatles second official L.P. release. Two weeks BEFORE release, "With The Beatles" had advance orders of 270,000, and before the first week of release was out, the half-a-million figure had been beaten. They were actually awarded a Silver disc (for sales of 250,000) on November 18th 1963, 4 days BEFORE release ! By mid January 1964 885,000 had been sold in the U.K. and by the end of 1964, the total was 980,000.
The ONE MILLION mark arrived by September 1965, making this album the FIRST EVER British album to sell 1,000,000 copies in the U.K. The American version of this album, Meet The Beatles bizarrely left off five of the tracks, but sold over 5 million copies. This makes combined sales for The Beatles second album of over 6.5 million.
Chart wise, this L.P. replaced "Please Please Me" at the number one slot, and remained there for 21 weeks. This gave The Beatles a continuous run of 51 weeks at the summit !_Also, in these early days of the British charts, ALL product was listed together regardless of format, and therefore this L.P. even made it into the U.K. singles chart, reaching number 11, which was a record placing for an album.
The cover was a very artful half-shadow black-and-white shot of The Beatles taken by Robert Freeman.
ALBUM PLAYED FOR GRADING: Yes – Fantastic! Great sound quality throughout.
This great record plays up to the visual and audio grading and beyond, with great clear sound. It is so loud and bright it sounds like a loud cut. The harmonies are incredible, and on tracks like 'All my Loving', the vocal separation is just amazing. Every instrument is clear, and the audio layering is just great. This really sounds like a different mix all together. There is certainly NO distortion, no loud clicks or pops, in fact I heard none .
Even the rockous 'Money', which usually has a slight blurry quality due to the original mixing, sounds great. The vocal layering just just out, particularity on tracks like 'You Really Got a Hold of Me', and again the separation on 'All I gotta Do' is just outstanding. There is of course slight static between some tracks, but any surface sound is minimal. On 'Till there was you', a real test on With the Beatles, Mccartney's vocals are usually slightly blurry, but not here. I will give a detailed account below:
With The Beatles is a complex and varied collection of music, and hard to find in clear audio condition. Worn copies can have a lot of surface sound even on musically complex and busy tracks like ' Hold Me Tight .' This pressing has strong undistorted audio, with Super clear sound. There is certainly no dominant interference, and NO loud pops or clicks or Distortion. It really sounds great and plays with great sound separation and clarity!
Superb sound, every track has been tested and I could find no obvious sound blemishes. Some occasional static only, and it is light and occasional. Wonderful TOP audio, there is certainly NO distortion, NO sticks or jumps what so ever.
Great music with great clarity, and so hard to find with this type of sound. The music jumps out, with definition, power and clarity, giving an incredibly live rockous sound. A great Stereo 1st press experience. The bass guitar and drums are so true, whilst the guitars come through crisp and clear. The bassy quality and bright sound make this a sensational pressing. With the clear and extra loud First cut engineering giving the audio a vibrant sound which cannot be beaten.
Starting with 'It Wont be Long', extremely clear run ins, followed by really loud great audio. No pops clicks or distortion, and just some static between the tracks. Incredibly powerful and loud sound. As 1st quiet track on the album, 'All I got to Do', again the sound is superb. Mccartney's vocals are really loud and Clear. I heard a couple of very light pops, but they are barely audible. 'All My Loving' again plays with superb audio, bright and powerful. There are certainly no obvious issue like loud pops or clicks, just superb clear audio. 'Don't Bother Me' again plays with clear sound followed by 'Little Child' which also plays superbly. A couple of light clicks between the tracks but none during the music. One of the really difficult tacks on the album, audio wise, 'Till There Was You', again sounds great, with none of the blurring that this track is so prone to. Amazing clear sound and no pops or clicks, there is some light static, but nothing unusual for this track. Finishing side 1. 'Mr Post Man' continuous the extremely high standard, with no loud pops or clicks, and not even a hint of distortion. This track and Money are particularly prone to buzzing or light distortion on these pressings, and there is absolutely none here what so ever. Just bright, clear, detailed rockous sound.
Side 2. Continuing the rockous sound with 'Roll Over Beethoven', it plays again with bright audio, nice clear run ins. It really takes you back to the Beatles early rock n roll origins, and plays with no pops clicks, and certainly not a hint of distortion. 'Hold me Tight' just plays superbly, as does 'You Really Gotta A Hold on Me'. There is some static between the tracks but you can also here a background track, before the full volume music starts. Superb! 'I wanna be your Man' powers in with super clear sound, and still not a single noticeable loud pop or click. Perhaps a slight tic in the middle but thats about it. The slower 'Devil in Her Heart' again plays really well, this really is a great audio performance. There is a bit of static between the tracks and then 'Not a Second Time' again plays superbly. Rounding off side 2. is the classic 'Money', a track on this album that nearly always plays with problems, heavy distortion and buzzing on even little played pieces. This track I am delighted to plays really does play really well, with great clear audio, again incredibly loud, rounding off a superb audio performance.
The tonal quality make this a sensational pressing. With the clear and extra loud First cut engineering giving the audio a vibrant sound which cannot be beaten. No loud pops or clicks, certainly not a hint of distortion, and some very light distant occasional surface static only.
A great all round example of this classic vinyl. This is a great Audio pleasure and I would have to give the Audio a strict EXCELLENT PLUS grading.
Staggering first (stereo) mix, unlike the re-issues which lack the impact. A great all round example of this great vinyl.
A lovely piece of glossy vinyl. An extremely heavy, shiny example!
A superb piece of glossy vinyl, and a really thick pressing. Deep clear grooves that can only be found on the original early pressings, this vinyl has been little played. The record has great shine, with no scratches, just some (ultra) light handling marks / paper removal marks and a couple of the lightest hairlines only. Any minor surface marks or very light and non sounding, being caused by handing and sleeve removal. On the whole this is a really stunning example.Strictly graded at EXCELLENT to NEAR MINT condition.
VINYL TESTED FOR ANY SIGNS OF WARPING:
Yes, NONE visible what so ever when tested be sight and on a moving turntable.
Original immaculate cover. With the Beatles was originally published with the misspelling "You Really Gotta Hold on Me", on the track listing on the back of the cover. These were quickly corrected, so the GOTTA covers are increasingly rare. If you are lucky enough to find a first press vinyl, having one with the correct matching cover is even more rare.
With the Beatles covers have to be one of the most prone to wear, of all the classic Beatles vinyls from the sixties. The laminate is prone to cracking and lifting, with serious ring wear and destruction to the edges. The unlaminated back is usually heavily marked and The Spines are nearly always flattened, worn and un readable. Not this one!
Being the second Beatles album, it is extremely hard to find With the Beatles covers in anything like decent condition. This is a truly incredible example with virtually NO corner wear and only a couple of light creases and speckling to the laminate.
There is virtually no rubbing along the edges. The opening edges are razor sharp and un frayed, unbelievable rare for any Parlophone press of With the Beatles. The white areas are very white, with virtually no blemishes. The back cover is nice and clean, with no discernible ring wear, which is very unusual for these delicate covers, virtually no blemishes, just some ultra light toning around the edges. I'm not sure if I've ever seen such a white rear cover on an original Stereo 1st pressing.
The Spine shows virtually no wear, the spine text is totally intact, and is one of the squarer examples I have seen, with the manufacturers lightly 'pinched' ends. A great example. All round, this is a really stunning cover!!! Grades strictly at EXCELLENT PLUS.
Both labels are in superb CONDITION. Barely any visible spindle traces (virtually none really, just a couple of ultra light barely visible lines) and some slight fading only. A great set of these ultra rare labels.Strictly graded at EXCELLENT to NEAR MINT condition.
1st Stereo pressings of With The Beatles came with the classic and superbly effective Emitex inner sleeve.
Stunning EXCELLENT PLUS condition, NO tears around the die cut openings, and NO wear at the tops. Crisp and Clean. No splits or damage at all, other than some light creasing.
A really stunning example.
An original 1st Pressing of With the Beatles in any type of condition is Incredibly scarce. The vinyl is so often played so much, heavily marked, scratched, with noisy, poor and distorted sound.
1st UK Yellow and Black original pressings of With the Beatles are getting rarer by the day. Finding one in all round great is extremely rare. A LARGE STEREO pressing with audio quality like this, a lovely vinyl and top cover makes this an EXTREMELY rare opportunity. A 1ST ever pressing with the Ultra Rare Large STEREO Logo, and the "GOTTA" misprint not only on the cover, but also on the record labels makes this an incredible rarity.
A truly wonderful and extremely rare 1st pressing of this classic early Beatles album.
MAKING THIS A FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY TO OWN AN EXTREMELY RARE PIECE OF MUSICAL HISTORY.
GREAT COVERS WITH NO SEAM SPLITS, NO TEARS, NO WRITING, NO STICKERS.
GREAT VINYLS WITH NO LOUD CLICKS OR POPS, NO JUMPS OR REPEATS - GUARANTEED!
SCRUPULOUS EXAMINATION and TESTING; PLEASE NOTE:
This record has been play tested on highly sensitive equipment to ensure the sound quality and accuracy of description. I aim to give a precise and concise description of the sound quality, pointing out any defects so that you know what you are buying. I will not go into screeds of information about the nature of the songs, as I imagine that you already know them well. I aim to describe all items as accurately as possible, and offer a full refund on return if for any reason you are not completely happy with the item description.
VINYL SOUND - PLEASE NOTE:
The highest quality vinyl with clear sound is rare, and is what I always aim for. I only sell records that play with TOP AUDIO performance, super clear sound uninterrupted by hiss or other interference. Even with the cleanest copies you will find occasional static sound or occasional light tics during playback, caused by a build of dust in the grooves. This is clearly different from the distortion, loud pops, repeating tics or clicks that are found on heavily played and worn pieces of vinyl. Any static build up will reduce when played, and I advise a light clean should be given between plays for optimal performance.
Large format art work covers with the original sound and mix unique to vinyl and of the highest quality audio. Vinyl record have always been loved and have become a great investment opportunity, with prices soaring over the last ten years, making classic pieces a great financial as well as a cultural investment.

V.G: The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items.
GOOD: The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, etc.
