Beatles please please me 1st pressing mono ... cross over pressing see labels for credits
Visually the vinyl has surface marks and has visible scratches but this does not affect the stunning audio throughout the record.
Audio plays beautifully, no clicks or jumps throughout tracks.
The record has obviously been played many times but this does not affect a very strong stunning playback .
I have played it throughout on a Michell gyrodec via musical fidelity Amps / quad speakers. I will review track by track below.

The labels are in very good condition with spindle marks ( see pictures )
The cover is in very good condition with fraying across the bottom right and some Wear . The photo cover itself is superb and is clean and unmarked
The back cover has slight Wear but nothing drastic . ( Ernst j day credit ) the spine is fully intact ( see pics ) worn on top and bottom but the writing on the spine is perfect.
All in all this a fantastic record .. visually I would grade it as very good but the audio is stunning with no jumps or clicks in the actual music.
Please see labels for credits etc as I am not a record dealer but have tried to follow the record collector grading system as best I can .
Hi I have been asked for
XEX 421 - 1N
Hi again I've spent more time revising this item than I did on my dissertation for my degree ... as I mentioned I am not a dealer in records .. I buy them too listen too However apparently this is a rarer 'crossover ' pressing from dick James to northern songs ... please see labels ... thanks to a certain e bay member for pointing this out .
