All this talk of vinyl LPs but how about the Vee Jay CD of "Introducing The Beatles"?? They have this in both flavours - with the original track listing and with the two replacement songs - whichever one you prefer.

Is this the real deal?? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=4068424254

Fake. VeeJay has NEVER issued this LP on CD because they simply don't own the publishing rights to do such a thing. And Capitol wouldn't release it because they already have all the songs on their 'Early Beatles' CD.

He's using the American album CD remake to his advantage and bootlegging them to make money.

That's my opinion anyway.

All this talk about this album has led to me buying a copy that was as close as possible to an original pressing from what I could tell on the ebay listing. All details according to Beatleharb's website checked out... except for how much dead-wax area the record has (which I can determine only when I receive the record). Even then, I'm sure something else will be amiss (eg: colourband is all washed out or something).

So what do you reckon my chances are of scoring an original for USD $9.49??? Possible or not?

I've scored the all-black v2 brackets for $10, so it's perfectly possible that you've got a real copy.

I've been doing my homework for coming up to 4 years now. It takes a lot of time to learn about every fake, every variation, every difference etc, but once you learn it all you can get some real bargains.

It's also a good idea, if you're serious about this, to try and get comparison copies - say one original and then a couple of the fake variations. Then you have a guide you can use when trying to authenticate others.

If it looks exactly like that then you have an authentic copy - albeit common. They're worth about $50-70 in NM.

I just wanted to say "thanks" for the information all of you provided on this record here, and especially the links!

I passed this record by a bunch of times, not wanting to pay $12 for a phony. I also thought the condition was worse, but when I got it home and cleaned it up, it sounded great. It's just nice to know it's an authentic version.

I would rate the condition VG+, the jacket maybe a little better, or more accurately:

?: 70-80% of book value
Record: May show some light scuffing. 1 or 2 very light inaudible scratches.
Labels clean. Spindle hole may indicate play.
Jacket: May have lightly dinged corner or very light edge wear. Smile

Counterfeit that's currently selling for 16 ($30).

Fake because it has the yellow-tint photocopy cover and the label on the disc is unlaminated and features the poor splodgey rimcolours.
