No, and I don't think it exists. If I recall correctly, the original session tapes no longer exist in the Abbey Road vaults. Home mixers and the Rock Band folks created a number of fake count-ins for many Beatles tracks by splicing a count-in from one song onto another. I suspect this is an example of such a fake.
Well John, it looks like Bobzyeruncle guessed it right off. There is the "IAM inside a triangle", so Scranton wins the prize.
The reason I had doubts about it to start with is, I just had a hard time believing that a major record label, printing a major recording artist's records, would be so sloppy. I had a hard time trying to center the label scans. The title, on the "A" side, went from low on the left to high on the right, while "The Beatles" went from high on the left to low on the right. Then the font was all weird looking too. I'm just glad it's legit.
Thanks to you guys for shedding a little light on this issue.
Thanks, W.B. I feel a bit more intelligent now. The typeface resembles what I have on a Scranton copy of Abbey Road. Bought it for the un-cropped jacket and the odd labels. The record itself is unplayable.
Excello-2101...now my curiosity is really piqued!..if possible could you tell us what kind if pressing plant stamp is in the run-out groove?...."IAM inside a triangle" means it's Scranton, Pa....an Asterisk (*) hand drawn or machine stamped means it's Los Angeles, Ca.....an "0" hand drawn or machine stamped means Jacksonville, Ill......(a sideways wine-glass means Winchester Va....but this seems too early)....John
Actually, you may be right . . . late 1969, they were trying out all sorts of wacky font combos before settling on what L.A. was using . . . besides, this was the period when the logo and rim print were actually part of the label copy artwork, rather than embedded in the label design.
Having been a hoarder for more years than I care to even think think about, I took between 5000 - 6000 7" singles to various charity shops in the area during the summer of last year. They were the remnants that I had over the years from buying job lots at car boot sales and what I was given by family & friends who just wanter rid of them. I still have over 2000, most are listed under "I OWN IT" by artists that are of interest to me, or some that I want to keep for other reasons.
Keith, that's the "Anniversary Issue" from January 1984, they airbrushed Paul's cigarette out..I'll upload it...........*sigh*........when I get up to then....John
PS- Paul's with a cigarette in a couple of the Lp sleeves too! -back cover photo of US "Meet The Beatles" (same photo session as this sleeve),
-inner photo spread of "Beatles For Sale", -back cover of "Rubber Soul", -"White Album" poster, -front cover of "Abbey Road"
You'll get a shock if you count 'em John! I always reckoned I had 2 or 3000 45's...I've counted nearly 4000 so far (we move in 6 weeks) and there are about 25 boxes still to count..it COULD get to circa 5000. Frightening.
To tell you the truth, I really don't know! (as my wife says, TOO MANY!)..I have a few Hendrix singles (I'm a fan, but not a fanatic)..and (since I've stopped on Geffen)..Reprise is a long way off.......(God I hope Nostradamus is wrong...I need more time!)...John
