Hello all, I have recently bought this copy below;

http://www.ufanlaw.com/The-Beatles-1962-1966/release/1406835

I’m only curious, as my copy is a promotional copy. Has anyone else got a promotional copy? I will post some pictures once it arrives. I’m so glad that I got it though, as I’ve never seen a promotional Beatles album before. ??

My copy finally arrived, what an amazing sound! So glad I spent that little bit extra to get the Japanese pressing. Has anyone else on here got the 1976 Japanese repressing? ??

I have a version pressed by capitol wich seems to be similar to the one in the link but the matrix numbers are diferent. Mine is:

Matrix / Runout (Side One Etch, exc "...Capitol" stamp): SKBO-1-3403-F16 —? MASTERED BY CAPITOL
Matrix / Runout (Side Two Etch, exc "...Capitol" stamp): SKBO-2-3403-J17 #2 —? MASTERED BY CAPITOL KP
Matrix / Runout (Side Three Etch, exc "...Capitol" stamp): SKBO-3-3403-J16 —? MASTERED BY CAPITOL
Matrix / Runout (Side Four Etch, exc "...Capitol" stamp): SKBO-4-3403-F16 —? MASTERED BY CAPITOL

Could be an error in the matrix numbers?

UPDATE on pressings

We now have a fourth and different pressing UMG-Calderstone EMI-Apple for DeAgostini July 2017

1. Has a new telephone number catalogue number (PSCP 717 no longer exisits)
.
2. Sleeve has legal copyright text in white top R-H-C on rear thank god no bar code!

3. The labels are a quasi mix up of UK EMI (Parlophone)/Apple original layout script and USA EMI-Capitol/Apple layout and script they now include illegible and crazy tiny gold text on top of the red backing behind the whole and sliced apple, the Stereo
text oddly placed and moved locations from whole to sliced side labels.

4. (By far the worst) apart from the original 2 accepted mono only mixes on the first 1973 release of Love Me Do and She Loves You.......this digital and remastered pressing now has "Please Please Me" in mono too (3 mono tracks) This defies any logic or reasoning PPM has always been available in it's Stereo mix and was that way on the first edition!

This album and it's side 1 of disc 1 has been the most tampered with, tweaked, altered and changed of any UK Beatles albums' editions

(The only other that springs to mind as being sonically corrected and thus altered was the late 80's repressing of the UK version of the USA Magical Mystery Tour Album on UK Parlophone with the vile offending USA instigated Duophonic-fake stereo mixes removed and replaced with their correct and true stereo mixes viz: Penny Lane, All You Need Is Love, Baby You're A Rich Man)

The Album notes are simply crass they do not list any facts or details about or how this compilation happened, but waffle on about the Beatles this, the Beatles that, how big they had become etc etc (nothing new or of any interest)
How about......................

1. The two albums ('62-'66 and '67-'70) being Alan 20% Klein's babies, his personal selections and his compilation of track

2. The use of the aborted photo for the shelved Get Back album (date taken at EMI Manchester Sq etc)

3. Klein's inststance that the USA edition of the Red set has the quasi James Bond Theme intro (as used in the film and on the USA film soundtrack album) tacked on to Help! Why the UK edition did not have the same!

4. The first ever UK coloured vinyl Beatles records

5. The messing about of Stereo to mono back to stereo then all mono etc tracks on side one (for CD release etc etc) what George Martin thoughts were etc why he did what he did and so on..

All little nuggets and info that collectors would like to have known about.and would have been of REAL interest

As it is now, with this "new" version this compilation is now a truly cocked up, started by EMI Every Mistake Imagiable! gaff.

IMHO this is what should have been pressed and released to DeAgonstini (after all they paid the pressing and printing bills)

1. Love Me Do DES (Digitally Extracted Stereo) Mix of The Andy White version and Andy White Added to the track Info

2. Love Me Do DES (Digitally Extracted Stereo) Mix of The First and original Ring version added now as the FIRST track so both versions were on this final vinyl version of '62--'66 or, add that gaffed and corrected 50th Anniversary 7" mono single in it's beach towel sleeve but now in a dinked -4pin OC pressing and full width spacing of the groove)

3. She Loves You DES (Digitally Extracted Stereo) Mix that does exisit there in 99.9% perfection using backing track to Stereo German Language version and one channel of the mono English Language Version.......hardly an alteration or change just correcting Parlophone procedure and tape wipe gaff!. Calderstone/Apple/UMG need to conceed and admit to this and accept it as THE definitive new and stereo mix of a so spliced and edited and spliced mono mix created by those who know!

4, Sleeve inner sleeves (with rounded corners) polylined inners and labels to match 99.9% of the EMI UK originals.

5. Red Coloured vinyl + repro of original coloured vinyl stickers as stickers on sheet

6 Notes that are all about the compilation the side one disc one changes and why reasons for the mono and stereo changes
the USA edition and the tag on to Help!
