The Beatles - Vinyl Trio #6 ** Free Shipping
A trio of vinyl LPs by the Fab Four that's sure to find a spot in your Beatles vinyl collection.
Rubber Soul is the sixth studio album by the Beatles. It was released on 3 December 1965 in the United Kingdom, on EMI's Parlophone label. The recording sessions took place in London over a four-week period beginning in October 1965. For the first time in their career, the band was able to record an album free of concert, radio, or film commitments. The songs demonstrate the Beatles' increasing maturity as lyricists, and in their incorporation of brighter guitar tones and new instrumentation such as sitar, harmonium, and fuzz bass, the group striving for more expressive sounds and arrangements for their music.
This is a 1976 stereo reissue on an orange Capitol label. The cover is in good condition with no writing or discolorations. It does have a small split on the spine. The vinyl is in good condition with no writing but some scuffs and a couple of visible scratches.
"Something New" is the third Capitol LP release and fifth American album release overall by the band, following the United Artists release of A Hard Day's Night. Originally scheduled for 1 August 1964, the album was rush-released on 20 July 1964, ten days after the British release of A Hard Day's Night. The album includes eight songs from the original British release of A Hard Day's Night, as well as the tracks "Slow Down" and "Matchbox" from the Long Tall Sally EP and the German-language version of "I Want to Hold Your Hand". The album was released in both mono and stereo versions.
This stereo release is Capitol ST 2108 with a purple Capitol label. The matrix/runout code of ST-1-2108-R13 #5 ––––◁ indicates a 1976 pressing at Capitol's Winchester plant, but Discogs says this should be on an orange label. Subsequent pressings (1978 & 1981) at the Winchester plant had purple labels but the matrix/runout codes were different. So this is likely a 1976 or perhaps a 1978 or 1981 issue. The sleeve and vinyl are both in very good condition.
A Hard Day's Night is the third studio album by the English rock band the Beatles, released on 10 July 1964 by Parlophone, with side one containing songs from the soundtrack to their film of the same name. The American version of the album was released two weeks earlier, on 26 June 1964 by United Artists Records, with a different track listing. A Hard Day's Night is the first Beatles album to feature entirely original compositions, and the only one where all the songs were written by Lennon–McCartney
This album is the movie soundtrack and an early pressing on black UA label with colored balls at the top and "High Fidelity" at the bottom. Track A3 is listed erroneously on the label and rear sleeve as "I Cry Instead" versus the true title "I'll Cry Instead". The sleeve is in very good condition with no writing, tears, or discoloration, although it does have some minor edgewear. The vinyl is in good condition with only minor scuffing but no significant scratches.
