This is an excellent sounding 1973 German Apple pressing of the classic debut from The Beatles. Since a clean original Brit mono copy goes for over a grand, most of us need a great alternative and this version has usually served me well. This copy absolutely delivers, with super clean and clear sound that's richer and fuller than many other pressings I've played.
5 stars Allmusic: "As the songs rush past, it's easy to get wrapped up in the sound of the record itself without realizing how the album effectively summarizes the band's eclectic influences."
Vinyl: EX (one superficial scuff, no effect on play)
Cover: VG+ (minor light creases)
Play notes: Excellent sound and quiet vinyl
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
