MEET THE BEATLES MONO FACTORY SEALED T2047 ORIG RARE
CALLING ALL BEATLEMANIACS!! EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL FACTORY SEALED FIRST ALBUM!!! This is the first Hi-Fidelity LP monophonic microgroove recorded on Capital Records called "Meet The Beatles" Black Label and is factory sealed as shown and features 12 great songs as listed below. This is a consignment auction from a close friend, it was a gift to him from another close friend and he has decided it is time to put it up for auction and his starting price is only $250.00 with NO RESERVE!! No rips in the plastic. You can see the 2 factory breathe holes on the front and back which is another indication of the original plastic. There is minor creasing on the top corners, this was in a home that was not smoke free so you can still smell it a little but that could hopefully be dealt with by airing it out or deoderizing the plastic and there are a couple of discolored spots on the cover which appears to be where something was once stapled, you can also see the shape of the album ring around the edge of the cover as shown below, however, this is over 40 yrs old and still VERY GOOD condition. Since this has never been opened I must assume the album is MINT!!! I have had a couple of people ask about the inside sleeve, this is sealed and will not open to check it, it is not a very loose shrink wrap but I was able to shake it enough to see the BLUE SLEEVE through the edge of the album opening, so I added more pics, hope this helps. Also I have been asked about credits, I only see that it shows what the Beatles themselves play and what songs they are lead vocals on, I don't see anyone elses name except for the cover photo which says Robert Freeman. The bottom right corner on the back has a #3 and a stamp with the letters RIAA. I believe this first album was recorded on January 20, 1964.
