Item Description

ARTIST: The Beatles TRACKS: Love Me Do / P.S.
I Love You YEAR: 1962 LABEL: Parlophone Demo NUMBER: 45-R 4949 Here is a rare opportunity to acquire one of the rarest Beatles records A genuine UK DEMONSTRATION 45 of their debut single Just 250 copies were pressed for distribution to DJs reviewers prior to its October 1962 release, and only a handful survive today.
This genuine disc bears the correct oversize labels with a large red A on the Love Me Do label: 45-R 4949 Both labels also have the DEMONSTRATION RECORD - NOT FOR SALE wording The Parlophone Co.
worded rims Paul McCartney s songwriting credit on both sides is misspelt as McArtney Matrix numbers: 7XCE 17144-1N 7XCE 17145-1N Special demo/jukebox record stamper codes: -/JR -/JR A ZT purchase tax code is stamped around the centre of the Love Me Do label in both run-outs.
The disc is housed within the original EMI promotional Top Pop - Special Rush Copy sleeve.
CONDITION: Visual: VG / EX Both vinyl surfaces are extremely clean and retain all of their factory shine with no dull or clouded areas and display no noticeable marks on strong light, except few scuffs.
Closer examination directly beneath my powerful halogen desk lamp reveals several harmless stylus/paper hairlines, but nothing I would call a scratch .
Both sides of this fine disc lie 100 flat on the turntable when playing.
Sound Quality: Love Me Do : VG P.S.
I Love You : VG This disc has clearly not been played very much at all.
My careful playcheck detected some light background noise on Love Me Do which accounts for the slight downgrade.
Both tracks are free from any groove/playwear distortion, clicks, pops or any other audible distractions.
Labels: VG / EX I ll let the images above do the talking.
