The Beatles "Love Me Do" Single RECALL!!!
It is being called the biggest Beatle collectible since The Butcher Cover…and I do happen to own 4 copies of this recalled single.
It is “Love Me Do” backed with “P.S. I Love You.” The first ever Beatles single, released 50 years ago on October 5, 1962.
What they did was put the wrong version of “Love Me Do” on the A-Side and the wrong catalog number on the B-Side (they put 4714 instead of the correct 4949.) 4714 was originally the single for Matt Monro called “Portrait Of My Love.”
This wrong A-Side has Andy White drumming instead of Ringo (which Ringo played on the original single version released.)
According to EMI, there were 6000 wrong ones pressed.
3000 never got out and approx. 2000 were returned?
The correct ones are available on the market to you right now for around $7.99 in American dollars (they are all U.K. imports by the way.)
Anyways, that leaves roughly 1000 out there and they are bidding for $895.00 if you go to eBay or Amazon 3rd party. Glad I pre-ordered all mine. I ended up with 4 copies of the recalls for only $28.00 total.
OK, OK, OK!!!
EVERYONE IN THE WORLD IS ASKING ME HOW YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RINGO & ANDY VERSIONS?
Ringo was delegated to play tambourine on the Andy White version.
THE TAMBOURINE IS THERE ON THAT “Andy White” VERSION AND VERY LOUD.
On the Ringo version, there is no tambourine and it is a very softer recording.
HOPE THIS HELPS EVERYONE?
Just to be a brat, I ordered a correct one too.
Remember to love your vinyl:-))))
