Trying to collect all the LP's on vinyl so I bought a new copy of The Beatles 'Help' album from a small HMV in Dundee today. I was playing it just now, turned it over for side 2 and its the first song from side 1 again 'Help'. Must have had a brain fart and forgot to flip it so turn it round and once again it's 'Help'. Turn light on and look at the label, both sides are correctly printed but the music from side 1 has been pressed on both sides of the record. I've done a quick Google and can't see any other examples of this - is there a big batch with this pressing? Question is, do I take it back to HMV for an exchange or or should I put it on eBay where there's no other copies with this mispressing and a collector might appreciate it?
Hi Shaun. Mispressings aren't usually a part of the collectible world. Especially (I think) a new/recent pressing BUTT, you never know,,, If you're not broke and you're interested in a fishing expedition, put it up for sale and see who bites. Otherwise, return it or just keep it along with a new correct copy as a curiosity. Hope that helps. Cheers
Friend: My favorite Beatles song is Band On The Run.
Me: It's not a Beatles song.
Friend: Wot! That guy, that guy, Paul McCartney sings it right?
Friend: Alright! That one is my favorite Beatle song.
Cheers lads. There's a few songs on side 2 that I wouldn't mind hearing so probably just eBay it with minimum price same cost as I paid for it. Would rather some completist had it in their collection rather than in hmv's recycling bin.
