Hello Goodbye:

I'm not a proper audiophile type, who can talk about the "warmth" of the vinyl sound or whatever.
I listen to music on CD, MP3 and vinyl and all have their pros and cons for me.
I just know that I love the whole experience of playing vinyl, and I don't mind hearing the crackles and stuff you get when you play an old record - it just enhances it for me (as long as it isn't TOO scratched!)

I have all the original 60's issue UK albums and singles, plus many reissues. I also have all the original 60s US albums and about half of the 1960s 45s.
And I have records from all over the world (Italy, France, Germany, Turkey, India, etc). And loads of solo singles and albums. But I used to collect vinyl so it was my hobby for a while.
I don't play them all but I do love to get stuff out and give it a spin  ;D

Peter, these days it's a whole lot easier to listen to my CDs.  But when I want to hear these albums the way I did for the first time, I fire up my Philips 312 turntable and off I go to the 1960s.  ;)

I thought I'm Looking Through You was like this for over twenty years until I bought the CD...


The Beatles - I'm Looking Through You - False Start (Vinyl)

Hello Goodbye:
I still play it like that on guitar.     ;D

I actually prefer the false start to the regular version off the CD

It was Paul's musical count-in.

There are a lot of versions of this album.  This one is the first version mono record with Love Me Do and P.S. I Love You in the second version cover which lists Ask Me Why and Please, Please Me.  It's not in very good shape, I'm afraid.  My sister used it as a rain hat one day getting out of the car and going into the house.  The front of the cover is a little warped.  The inner sleeve disappeared years ago.  The record isn't in bad shape though.

We could do a swap HG - I have a copy of this LP with 2nd issue "Please Please Me" vinyl inside a 1st issue "Love Me Do" sleeve!!  ;D

I do occasionally have a look on eBay for a 1st issue record to go with my sleeve but I quickly get fed up searching through dozens of listings of counterfeit copies, which most copies of this LP on eBay seem to be.
