Item Description

The time has come for me to part with my 50 year old Beatles collection. This collection consists of LP's, 45's, picture sleeves, EP's, 12" singles, picture discs, sealed LP's, test pressings, acetates, promos, box sets, and CD's from the US and the UK. The collection also includes vinyl and CD's from John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, and Apple artists. There are numerous rarities in this collection. The vast majority of the vinyl is in NM- to NM condition; I tried not to acquire anything with a grade below that, or attempted to upgrade, although a few of the extremely hard to find items I was unable to upgrade and they will have a grade below that. If you are a Beatles collector, be sure to bookmark me as the items I'll be listing will surely be of interest. Here we go; a splendid time is guaranteed for all.

John Lennon-"Roots" LP, Adam VIII A-8018, released in 1975. Very scarce unauthorized release. It's estimated the approximately 300 were sold by mail order before Apple was able to stop sales. Heavily counterfeited, this one is 100% authentic. John's full portrait is on the front, back print is completely legible, A8018 is hand etched on the side 1 label, Adam VIII inner sleeve is present and spine print reads "Great". There is some wear to the side print which I've only been partially successful showing. The actual word "great" is partially missing, but there isn't enough room between what's visible and the word "rock (which is also missing the "r") for "greatest" to fit. Vinyl, VISUALLY graded by Goldmine standards, is in VG+ condition, with both sides having a couple of very light, non-feelable marks. Both sides still retain their full gloss. Cover is in strong VG condition, with some light general age/ring wear, a couple of small stains on the back and the mentioned spine wear. Very scarce piece of Lennon vinyl; a real one is very hard to find in any condition.
