Item Description


THE BEATLES
HOTTEST HITS LP
VERY RARE DENMARK 1965 FIRST AND ONLY PRESS MONO PARLOPHONE PMCS 306


XSTX 115 1 / XSTX 116 1


ONE OF THE GREAT BEATLES WORLDWIDE COLLECTABLES, THIS LP WAS BRIEFLY RELEASED IN DENMARK IN 1965, WITH POPULAR OPINION STATING ONLY 3,000 PRESSED. GENERALLY, HARDER TO FIND THIS THAN A BLACK & GOLD!

FAMOUS 'ESKIMO' SLEEVE.


A REALLY NICE COPY, PLAYED BUT LOOKED AFTER, WITH AN EXCELLENT PLAYBACK.



VINYL
STRONG EX, AND DIFFICULT NOW TO FIND SUCH A NICE CLEAN COPY. AUDIO-WISE, A GREAT PLAYBACK OF THIS FAMOUS LP. THERE IS SOME SMALL BACKGROUND, BUT YOU MOSTLY ONLY HEAR IT ON SIDE RUN-INS/OUTS & TRACK BREAKS (LITTLE MORE AT THE INTRO BEGINNING OF EACH SIDE). TO BE HONEST, ON MY LINN YOU DON'T HEAR MUCH BUT THE MUSIC WHEN THE ACTUAL TRACK'S PLAYING, AND THE CLARITY OF THE AUDIO DURING THE TRACK PLAYBACK IS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. THIS WAS FAMOUSLY A GOOD PRESSING FOR SOUND QUALITY, AND THIS COPY BARES THIS OUT. THE AUDIO IS LOUD, CLEAR AND DYNAMIC, WITH JUST SOME SMALL BACKGROUND AS DESCRIBED.
VISUALLY, THE RECORD IS LOVELY AND CLEAN, AND HAS OBVIOUSLY BEEN CAREFULLY PLAYED AND HANDLED. THERE IS SOME SMALL STORAGE MARKING AND FEINT HANDLING HAIRLINES, BUT IT'S SMALL, AND YOU CAN'T FEEL ANYTHING, SO THE BACKGROUND IS JUST FEINTLY LOW-LEVEL AS DESCRIBED, WITH NO LOUDER 'TICS' OR 'POPS'. A REALLY NICE EXAMPLE.
SO THERE WE GO - A GREAT PLAYING AND GENUINE PIECE OF BEATLES MUSICAL HISTORY, GETTING MORE SCARCE AS THE YEARS ROLL ON BY.
PLAY GRADED ON A LINN SONDEK LP12 WITH ITTOK LV II ARM AND LINN KLYDE CARTRIDGE. ALL GRADING AS PER RRPG GUIDELINES. PLEASE SEE OUR 'GRADINGS EXPLAINED' SHOP PAGE FOR MORE INFO.

SLEEVE
FRONT LAMINATED DANISH SLEEVE A NICE SOLID VG+ WITH SOME GENERAL STORAGE WEAR. NO WRITING. PLEASE SEE PHOTOS FOR MORE DETAIL. ORIGINAL'USE EMITEX'INNER SLEEVE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.


LABELS

NICE EX BOTH SIDES WITH SOME FEINT SPINDLE MARKING.
