Stripped of it secondary cutting EQ, this 1970's German pressing of 'Please, Please Me' is widely accepted by audiophiles worldwide as THE best sounding pressing of this the sound on this pressing is arguably the best version on any format.

Every track sparkles with a clarity and warmth missing from even 1st UK pressings.

This amazing sounding is only present on pressings with matrix numbers: SHZE 117-A-2 & SHZE 117-B-2

Vinyl weight: 129g

Housed within an unlaminated German printed cover with HörZu 'TV' logo in the upper left corner of the front panel.




A clean & unblemished set showing just a handful of barely visible spindle trails around each unworn centre hole.


Super-clean, deep-gloss playing surfaces which display no noticeable marks or wear in strong daylight. Closer inspection directly beneath my unforgiving powerful halogen desk lamp reveals just some barely visible wispy paper hairlines and a single non-feelable 1cm hairline on side 2 which does not affect sound or play in the slightest.

Sound Quality: MINT

This pressing truly lives up to the hype and delivers unmatched sound quality making it the only pressing of this album you will ever need to own. This copy plays has been barely played on top-quality equipment and my careful play-check detected no audible faults or wear throughout. You will not be disappointed.


Some moderate age/storagewear with no major faults.

Both seams and the spine are unworn and unsplit.
