Released on 5 October 1982 to mark the 20th anniversary of the original release this has both the Ringo Starr version on side B and the Andy White version on side A. The cover states it has a “Rare recording of Love Me Do” but this is simply the Ringo version. Up to 1982 the Ringo version had only been released on the original single back in 1962. It was replaced on the Please Please Me album and subsequent single releases by the Andy White version so had not been pressed since early 1963.
The catalogue number is 12R 4949 and it has the matrix numbers 12 R 4949 A-1-1-3 and 12 R 4949-1-1-2. Both the sleeve and the record are in excellent condition.
