This album is on the budget Pickwick/Contour label, catalogue number CN 2007. It is a reissue of Polydor’s “The Beatles First” and has 12 tracks from hamburg – eight featuring The Beatles and four without. It was released in 1973 but my version, with the matrix numbers CN 2007 1/1/420 04 and CN 2007 2/1/420 04 and dark orange labels, probably dates from around 1976.
The cover is in very good condition, it has some minor ringwear and is coming away slightly at the bottom seam. The record itself is in excellent condition, just 3 or 4 minor clicks on Cry For A Shadow and the odd spot of feint crackle. It comes with a plain white inner sleeve.
Estimated Value : £5
