Beatles – 1962 to 1966

LP (Item 518361) Apple, Mid 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

An important record in the 70s – one that really kept alive the spirit of the pre-Sgt Pepper's Beatles – with a range of fantastic tracks from their first four years!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Nice German red vinyl pressing! Cover has a "rot pressing" sticker in one corner.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Let It Be
Apple, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
A bittersweet farewell from The Beatles – a record that definitely shows the fracturing unity of the group, with lots of near-solo moments – but a set that also makes us really wonder what they'd have done with all this genius, had they managed to hold it together!

Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good-

Capitol/Apple, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold
Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too!

Plastic Ono Band
Apple, 1970. Very Good-
The first true proper solo album by John Lennon – recorded after a few non-Beatles records with Yoko Ono, and at the same time as Yoko's much wilder album with a similar title!

Live Peace In Toronto
Apple, 1969. Sealed
The earliest incarnation of the Plastic Ono band, and more or less a one off, with an all-star line up that included Eric Clapton and Klaus Voorman alongside Lennon and Ono.
