Beatles / Help !
Japan Early Press LP
Odeon OP - 8151
Appendices: “Original OBI”, “G/F Different Cover”, “Insert", “Inner-Bag” & “Red Wax"
Description: This is scarce Japanese Early Press copy ( released in 1967 ) of their original album, comin' with complete appendices. The disc is rare red wax, issued only for Japanese early pressing. The gate fold cover shows inside “Japanese liner notes” & “Photos of members”. Not only inside but also back cover is also different from UK copy. The pin-up is not originally issued for this edition. It’s hard to find this item with red wax even in our country nowadays. Scarce item from Japan to serious collector.
Condition: VG/VG+ ( Cover / Disc )
COVER: Cover is good in condition, except for lightly worn corners & outer-edge. It’s lightly scraped and stained inside gate-fold and top-rim of back side. The surface of outside is lightly scraped as usual. Bottom corners of front side with minor strip-marks. Otherwise it has no tear, ring-wear, dent & writing...OK.
DISC: Disc is good in condition, keeping glossy. It has a few short scuffs and scratches on Side B and a few slight ones on Side A. There’re some spindle-marks on each label. Otherwise it has none of any hairline, which is to be rated as “VG+”. Flaws are not many just a few on Side A and several on Side B. A tiny scratch at the start of Side B-3 makes several clicks. Otherwise it plays fine.
OBI: G, being creased on the surface of front, while being partly torn in the top-rim, left-rim & left bottom edge. The back side is lightly stained in light brown. A supply-tag is still in the top of back side.
INSERT: G+, being rippled with brown spots in places on the surface of each side. The top-flap is creased.
INNER-BAG: G+, being creased on the surface of each side. It’s split short in top edges.
