I thought these would be interesting to share. My late father-in-law was an avid beatle fan and held on to all of his albums. He was born 1950. We inhereited these and I know about the beatles but nothing about their albums. Any information on them would be greatly appreciated. I tried to take the best pictures that I could :)

    Hello, jennyhaps i am a beatles fan of their music but was not born in the 1950,lol
    but i could tell you that for a beatles fan they are worth alot to them just like
    your father-in-law. I do have all there albums on cd. good luck on finding what
    you are searching for.
  2. jennyhaps, 6 years ago
    haha bradtjdd. I know what you mean. I have beatles cds and enjoy their music. Actually, the first song I learned to play on the piano was "let it be". I just know nothing about their albums as far as vinyls go. lol.

    This particular record is not the original 1965 release, but a later one from Apple, using the original 1965 Capitol graphics on the cover. I believe it was released in 1971.

    Thanks stefdesign :)

    an appraiser on tv show auction hunters said he saw one go at auction for 2300 dollars and also made a comment its very rare only about 30 known to exist and you and i got one hold on to it
  7. packrat-place packrat-place, 5 years ago
    Sorry, this is a common variety. stefdesign is correct, it came out in 1971.
  8. stefdesign stefdesign, 5 years ago
    I had this record when I was a teen... the original one, not the later version. I can guarantee it didn't have that same label. Apple records didn't even exist until 1968. So, no apple label in 1965.

    Hi Stef, Isn't it sad when you can be an authority on "vintage" stuff because you were there then it was new. :)
  10. stefdesign stefdesign, 5 years ago
    Ain't that the truth! When I hear the word 'vintage', I can just about guarantee I was there then!

    Again I will say, while this is a very nice record, it has minimal collector doller value.
    Jerry Osborne has seven varieties of Capitol ST-2228 listed, and none over about $175.00 in MN condition. Besides, if it was an original 1964 release(yes, 1964) how could it have a "Gold Record Award"?
    "Apple Records is a record label, founded in 1968 as a division of Apple Corps Ltd. by The Beatles. EMI and Capitol Records agreed to distribute Apple Records until 1975; Apple owned the rights to records by artists they signed, while EMI retained ownership of The Beatles' records."

    thank you for the comments glad to have some support my album is from capitol records and the st number is st2047 and first song on side one is I want to hold your hand....maybe we are correct I will find out one way or another
  13. packrat-place packrat-place, 5 years ago
    What is the mystery? Please elaborate with specifics.
  14. mysteryman, 5 years ago
    mr packrat what do u need for info please
  15. packrat-place packrat-place, 5 years ago
    We are discussing Capitol/Apple ST-2228 and you seem to be discussing Capitol ST-2047, "Meet The Beatles", did I miss something?
  16. mysteryman, 5 years ago
    no i am just telling you what i see on the album cover it says capitol gold award and the stnumber is 2047 different than what you have or saw thats why i am questioning the authenticity
  17. packrat-place packrat-place, 5 years ago
    What album cover? The one in this post is ST-2228. The Gold Record Award means nothing more then the record sold 500,000 copies and was put on re-issues. It means nothing more then that. What are you looking at?
  18. mysteryman, 5 years ago
    im talkin about the album cover and album that i have in my possesion why dont it match yours
  19. mysteryman, 5 years ago
    no where on the album cover does it say anything about apple thanx for your help anyway
  20. kerry10456 kerry10456, 5 years ago
    I've got a suggestion for mysteryman........... Post your album so that we all can see it and make sure you show the ST # as stated. jenny has posted the pictures on hers and has done a fine job. Thanks Jenny for you letting us use your posting for this happy HS. Now back to mysteryman, You've posted several comments but yet to produce any pictures for us to give you an informative answer to your querries about same. There are several EXPERTS on CW that really do know a thing or two. Hate to be rude, but there's an old saying....... "Put up or Shut up"

    Sorry for putting rude comments on your posting Jenny, feel free to delete these if you see fit. KERRY

    Yes you did. I am not going to repeat it, however, take it from me, it was not very nice, and had no place here. Above is the excxhange, minus the comment. That is one thing I like so much about this site, the people here are mature adults, and act the same. We do not always agree on everything, however, we resolve our differences of opinion with facts and maturity, without resorting to vulgar name calling.
    jennyhaps, sorry to fill up your post with all of this, and thank you for sharing. mysteryman was confusing me and I was trying to get some straight answers out of him.
  23. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 5 years ago
    Just as well I missed it. I have enough problem dealing with some of the posts. Out spoken or having an opinion is fine, debate the issue and have fun. Vulgar names are out of place. It isn't a popularity contest but shouldn't be a need for being vulgar either.
