Price $24.00 - French release of the Help! EP on Odeon records. The Odeon label also produced records for other countries in Europe after The Beatles hit the Top Ten. This is the original orange Odeon label for this EP. Earlier French EP's were released on a dark blue Odeon label. Rarer still are the Polydor releases from the period prior to their heightened fame. Although this cover and vinyl record is in great condition, the writing on the back of the cover prevents it from being graded higher. The book value of this EP is $75.00.
Price - $29.00 Japanese "Help!" EP is in very good condition with disc in excellent condition. This is on the original Odeon label manufactured by Toshiba Musical Industries Ltd. for release in Japan. Release date was December 5, 1965, this EP has Help!, Ticket To Ride, I'm Down, Dizzy Miss Lizzy. Some of the Japanese EP's were issued in red and black vinyl and the red originals seem to be favored by collectors. The audio quality of Japanese records is excellent, especially in this condition.
Price $21.00 French EP "Les Beatles" - Although this is the fourth Odean EP released in France, the label style shown was released from 1966-69. So this is a re-issue of the original released on the orange Odeon label. This label is still quite collectible and holds a good market value as newer releases appeared after 1969. The condition is VG/Exc.
This EP is Not For Sale - Mexican EP - Capitol : Side A - Michelle, Girl Side B - Day Tripper, We Can Work It Out
Price: $8.00 Each - This Russian flexidisc has seen better days but is rarely seen and Russian Beatle records are few and far between. The State-Run company, Melodiya, first released Beatle records in the very late sixties. We have seen vinyl releases from Melodiya that play much better than these flexidiscs, but the flexidiscs seem rarer. Solo Beatle releases of these flexidiscs are also available, but not always popular, probably because of the audio quality.
