I found 2 CD albums by The Beatles today in a second-hand music shop, although I didn't buy them so can't supply photos. I noticed something slightly odd on both of them.
Firstly, the font-type on the album-spine on both albums (With The Beatles and Beatles For Sale) differed from copies of the same albums in other music shops, where they were brand new (HMV, etc). Was an unusual font.
Also, in the booklet for With The Beatles there was a page introducing the band and their roles within; John's name appeared as 'Jhon'. No joke!
In the booklet for Beatles For Sale there was a page with really bad English, like someone had attempted translating it from another language. I know there's a page in this album booklet with strange Lennon-like word-play and I compared the booklet with a copy from a brand-new version in another store and they did differ, although only on a few words.
They did look like very professional fakes and I am only aware of one edition of each Beatles album being issued on CD. Were any of The Beatles' CD albums ever re-released? Do versions in foreign countries differ/match my description?
What's the deal then anyone? Fakes or rarities?
