I have been slowly (and patiently) been buying up Parlophone issues of the Beatles records, so far, almost all from UK- based sellers. A few of the 45's I've bought were claimed to be first issues, but I really don't care about that. What I do care about, though, is the quality of the sound. Unfortunately, US Capitol records didn't care about the quality of the sound, all they cared about was making as much money as possible from the cash cow known as the Beatles, and their means of protesting this was their now-famous Butcher Cover for the Yesterday and Today album, which I'm not interested in owning a copy of, unless I get lucky enough to have a copy of fall into my lap for a cheap price. Also will mention that, since I got a great copy of the Please Please Me LP, I also no longer look for Vee Jay records copies of Introducing The Beatles, since the cheapest real stereo copy went for way over $100. US, plus Please Please Me has all 14 tracks on 1 album.
