Released on 4 December 1995 to promote the Anthology project Free As A Bird reached number 2 in the UK charts. I have 2 different copies shown below.


Standard Press

The pictures below are of my standard UK/Europe press which has the matrix numbers R6422 A-2-1-Q4 and R6422 B-2-1-Q4 and is in excellent condition, perhaps just the odd bit of feint crackle. The sleeve too would rate as excellent, just a touch of ringwear.

Estimated Value : £5 – £10


UK Jukebox Press

The pictures below are of my copy that was pressed for UK jukeboxes and has the matrix numbers R 6422 A-2-1-Q4 and R 6422 B-2-1-Q4. It has black moulded labels and was issued without a picture sleeve. It is in excellent condition playing immaculately throughout.

Estimated Value : £5 – £10
