Thankfully I have the Parlophone originals ...even a mono gold label Please , Please Me , so I won't need to bother with this one , although I did stump up for the mono CD boxset just because I could.costaki wrote:anyone taking the plunge on the Beatles Mono lp box?
thinking about it but ~$350 on records in one plunge is
For many many years I collected Beatles LP's ' 45's and general ephemera from all over the world , acetates (group and solo) ,bootlegs , Butcher sleeves , Iranian , Chile , S. Africa , Rhodesia ..you name it ....Apple stuff too.
In the end the sheer endlessness of it all finally got to me. Collecting most bands output there comes a point when you need to bite the bullet and spend that £1000-£2000 to get the major piece your missing ....but with collecting the Beatles you could keep on spending £1000 endlessly and your still only taking baby steps along the collecting path of their worldwide output.
