Cat.No. PMCO 1202 – This is The Beatles first LP record and is a quite rare first pressing, limited to a small number of copies in this mono version and released on a gold on black Parlophone label in Australia, in October 1963. To confirm it is a  true first pressing, Side 1 matrix has ‘XEX 421-IN’ stamped in the vinyl on the run-out groove and Side 2 has ‘XEX 422-IN’ stamped (see photos). This is in very good condition for a 70 y.o. record.  The vinyl is graded as very good ++  and still has a good sheen. There are a few marks, light skuffs, hairlines, but nothing serious. It plays through perfectly with no sticking or skips, but has some ‘clicks’ between a few tracks. It has 14 classic and memorable songs – see listing below. Side 1  –  I Saw Her Standing There,  Misery,  Anna,   Chains,  Boys,  Ask Me Why,  Please Please Me  Side 2  –  Love Me Do,  P.S. I Love You,  Baby It’s You,  Do You Want To Know A Secret,  A Taste Of Honey,  There’s A Place,  Twist and Shout, etc
