HELP! sleeves:
 (1) am yet to find an E. J. Day example? 
  (2) mono or stereo lettering on front is in outline. Any variation in type-set of this is rare.
 (3) No mono or stereo stated on the front are post mid 1969 printed covers.
(4) there are two different 'texture' finishes to the fronts: very smooth (this is indicated as S ), and slight orange peel/ ripple effect (indicated as R ).
(5) the fronts can be found in varying shades of white. This is signified here on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being 'yellowy' ~ 5 the whitest possible HelpLPCover_specimens.jpg (56113 bytes)
example: 
S - 3  = smooth front is off-white

HELP! ~  You will see that the the above albums have Y= . This is the sound quality of "Yesterday".  e.g. Y= VG (Yesterday plays VG)
No matter what the rest of the album's playback sound quality demonstrates, s2 track 6 "Yesterday" has a resonance of it's own!
Perfection is what one would wish for, but in this instance second best, as 95% of examples reveal, will have to suffice.

RUBBER SOUL
front covers can vary slightly in colour tones. This is not normally pursued by collectors.. however...can accommodate!
In my experience, of all the Beatles UK issue LP's, Rubber Soul covers are the hardest to find in true Excellent NM condition.

re REVOLVER #299 only: Lead singer on each track on the LABEL is stated before songwriter credit 
e.g.
' DR. ROBERT - John Lennon (Lennon-McCartney) '

SGT. PEPPER sleeves have a external flaps  within the g/f. Any without this criteria are post 1971 printed covers.

Re French Abbey Road: these omit the intro (one rev.) thus appears to be a fade-in.
These are 'Contract' pressings from the early 70's.(see further down this page)

Re White Album double "THE BEATLES":
(a) all the above have top opening sleeves.
(b) may / may not have "EMI Recording" stated (and not all were married with discs 1 + 2)

Re "LET IT BE": PARLOPHONE logo (back) sleeves are reputedly for "export", but some did turn up in UK retail shops.

Later Apple pressings are listed further down this page

ORIGINAL UK "LET IT BE" BOX SETS

The 2 ends of the "Interior" base, that houses the tray, have a curved tuck-in flap.  As these have to
 be pushed/ pulled to remove the contents, it would be highly unlikely that a NM interior exists. 
 Because the fit is so tight, it is advisable not to store the LP within the box!

Contrary to what one might have read elsewhere, the colour of the APPLE logo on the reverse of the record cover
that came as issued with the box sets, were either red or green  - 100% guaranteed. Ratio approx. 6 red, to 4 green.
Red Apple sleeve albums were also retailed without the box.

There were at least four 'green' print variations of the Apple logo on the cover
(...interested?)

The retail price of 2.99 was + 1 more than the standard LP.  The book was not to be sold separately by record retailers.
All books included within the UK box set were printed in England.
