5. The Beatles – “Please Please Me”
Sold For: $5,000
Listed As: “THE BEATLES Paul McCartney’s Own Gold Parlophone “Please Please Me” LP W/LOA”
Genre: Pop/Rock
Record Label: Parlophone (PMC 1202)
Country/Region of Manufacture: U.K.
Format: 12-Inch, 33rpm
Special Attributes: LOA, no cover sleeve, mono
Record Grading: VG+
Seller: RECORDMECCA
Seller’s Comments: “We are proud to offer perhaps the ultimate copy of the Beatles debut album–Paul McCartney’s personal Gold Parlophone copy of The Beatles’ debut album, “Please Please Me,” contributed to a charity auction in 1985. As noted in the accompanying letter from McCartney’s production company, MPL, this album was sent along with a photograph to a resident of Surrey, UK in response to a letter to McCartney requesting something for a charity auction.

This copy is the earliest version, with Dick James publishing credits for “I Saw Her Standing There”, “Misery”, “Do You Want to Know a Secret” and “There’s a Place” and the proper MT tax code on the Side 2 label. The Stamper codes are -1N/1/L and 1N/1/O. Visually it grades Good, but it plays VG+ with some ticks and surface noise, but no skips or jumps.

The album was sent in its original EMITEX lined innersleeve without an album cover; however the original MPL mailing envelope is included. The innersleeve has some tape attached to the back, we’re guessing to attach it to a backing during the auction.

An extraordinary opportunity to obtain Paul McCartney’s own copy of the first Beatles album released anywhere in the world, with rock solid provenance. With Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.”
