Man oh man, are THOSE cool, Keesie?! :shock: I wonder how any diehard Beatles fans have ever seen those, or even knew they existed???! :-k

I hope I didn't overwhelm you too much, Keesie...Don't worry too much...VE is a big place with a lot of info, even for us veterans, who have been here awhile...Take your time, read a few threads and post anything you like at your leisure...Still, any start, especially one like this, is a great start! Those five records alone would certainly be cool to own, and what a great story behind them! 8)

Although I have some cool 45's, those ones really take the cake! Do you know the sides A & B for all five of them? :-k

Thanks VM.Yes, those five are really special. Each one contains 3 or 4 songs, but everything written on them is in Russian, and you really have to play them to know what's on them.I wrote all titles down in English of course:

Here comes the sun/Because/Golden slumbers/Carry that weight/The end

Octopus's garden/Something/Come together

With a little help from my friends/Penny Lane/When I'm 64/Lovely Rita

Across the universe/I me mine/Let it be

Can't buy me love/Maxwell's silver hammer/Lady Madonna/I should have known better.

Before adding this special 45, I have to tell you this story.

This version of help does NOT start with John Lennon singing:'help, I need somebody, help....'.

In Europe versus the USA up to Sgt Pepper, LP's differed a lot. First of all the USA 'discovered' the Beatles about a year later than the rest of the world. This does not seem a long time, but they had an enormous production from the start. In short, the US had to catch up. They were turned down (!)by Capitol, and a small company like V-Jay got the rights to their first album. This not only meant 5 singles in the first five places in the hitparades at the same time in 1964, but also Capitol-America realised a year later they made a big mistake to turn them down.

This meant Parlophone UK produced LP's with 12 or 14 Beatles tracks, while Capitol USA had another strategy: 6 Beatles tracks and 'fillers': the same tracks by on orchestra. That way songs were 'saved' for a next album.

When 'help' appeared in 1965, The EU version had Beatles tracks. The US version had some of these, and finally an album was produced with the 'filmscore'. Not only orchestral tunes were added, but before the song 'help' started, a 15 second orchestral tune was added, called 'the James Bond intro'.........

......this theme can also be found on the first US copies of the 'Red-album', the 2LP set which came with the 'Blue' album. Those were both 2LP sets with hits, done in 1973. So check your copies!!

The singles were of course done simultaniously all over the world, as they could not be held back (apart from Russia......)
Mexico obviously did not have a clue what was what, and they produced the help-single WITH the Bond intro (and 'I need you'on the B-side instead of 'I'm down', like the rest of the world).

Here's that single.

Ooh! Now those are really cool, Keesie! I sure hope the Beatles fans are paying attention! 8)

Great story, too, and I learned something for the day! :D

No Beatles fans here VM! Just you and me.

So, next one, for you only.

In January '67 the Beatles were working on Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever. Many versions were made, and both songs became very complicated. At a certain moment Paul saw a concert on TV, and was impressed by a guy in the orchestra, who played a little piccolo trumpet. The next day he asked George Martin to contact the guy, a James Mason (no, not that one). He was invited, played his parts and he came home 27 pounds richer.
George Martin thought Paul was then satisfied, so vinyl copies were made and sent to radiostations sent in the USA. While the airplay started, George Martin (or Paul)realised the wrong version was sent, so it was quickly replaced by the version we know.
Some of these wrong copies survived, and they are worth a lot. I mean: a lot. My copy is MINT, and only played once by me.
No, I don't sell it
Yes, I will play it more often, but I put it on CD as well. It is available on several bootlegs, as well as the anniversary Sgt Peppers of a few months ago.

The main difference between the version we know and this one is that this one ends with a piccolo trumpet.

I don't get why my posting had to be approved first. I mean, why did the message pop up with my 'Penny Lane-posting' and not with any other one.

Anyway, next 45. Not one, but TEN in one go: This Glenn Miller box contains 10 45's, each with more than 5-6 minutes a side. Fun is that they are numbered 1 tot 10, and then back from 11 tot 20, so side 1 has side 20 on the flip. That way you could stack the pile on a 'changer', and when they were all played, turn the whole pile over. I don't think that would have done the singles any good, but this set is near mint.

Hi Kindsaluv, thanks so much for adding those 45's here. Been away as well for a while, but good to see the thread is active. Very 'intriguing'(if that is the right word)for that 10CC sleeve. They used to make an art of every sleeve they did, 45 or 33. All others you bought are great too. Those Otis Redding, Edwin Starr and The Band are really mouth-watering!

The Italian side of the Beatles is very impressive, I did not know that existed, obviously because it is for the Italian market. Thanks for sharing. As a Beatlesmaniac we need to look up a lot of details, and as you know there are so many books of the Fab Four. I don't want to put you off, but this summer I managed to buy 'The Anthology of the Beatles records by Alex Bagirov'.
Two volumes, a total of 1400 pages, describing the complete vinyl discography of the Beatles in the USA, GB, USSR and several other countries. No digital, no solo, just Beatles. Included are postcards, poster, and very important: a copy of the very first Beatles single on Polydor: 'Ain't she sweet'.

This set is so overwelming, that it takes ages just to walk-through. It is also difficult to make a picture of the total, but here it is.

Hi all,
these are (some) of the last singles purchased in last months.
All the 80’s singles have been bought at Planet Sound in Reggio Emilia, a great record shop.
The rest in various record stores or record fairs

Eurythmics – Love is a stranger. I was looking for this since a long time. This is a German press

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-utdyjl_ivp8/ ... ranger.jpg

Also found these other 2 singles, not great songs but the covers are really beautiful
Shame – Revival
https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-nOJvEP86Tu4/ ... evival.jpg



Bob Dylan – Tangled up in blue (ITA)
https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-2qgaGSf-e4M/ ... 2Bblue.jpg

Madonna - Dress You Up
https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-IFXvDIhynys/ ... u%2Bup.jpg

Cilla Black – Anyone who had a heart EP. Never heard about the lovely “Love of the Loved” (a Lennon-McCartney jewel).
https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-VFuhoPyEo8o/ ... Bloved.jpg

Suzanne Vega – Left of center (with Joe Jackson)
https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-JQnp4dT0aNk/ ... center.jpg

I’ve searched this for eons. Then in one week I’ve found two copies (and obviously, the second one was much more cheaper than the first bought. But it has been an appreciated present to my best friend)
Rita Mitsouko – C’est comme ca
https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-s6yIFQIR8P8/ ... e%2Bca.jpg

I never knew this 45 existed. Robert Palmer de-evoluted in a muscular version of the Devo classic https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-2i1eUS8Mli8/ ... 2Bwant.jpg

Wow Kindsaluv, Santa DID come to you after all......

Lennon & McCartney indeed wrote 'Love of the loved' for Cilla Black. You now have to look of 'It's for you' and 'Step inside love', which they also wrote for her.....they wrote so many songs for others. I have them all on CD.
