Anyone know the value of this Beatles album?
« on: February 8, 2005, 08:54 PM »
A friend of my dad's bought him the Beatle's Rubber Soul vinyl back in the mid 60's, I've looked for any sort of clue as to the value of this thing, but I can't find too much info on it, really. The cool thing about this vinyl is that 1) the number of typos all over the front/back cover, and 2) the vinyl is orange.
I think it was made in Tawaain, although it was purchased in Japan.

Here's a picture I found online of the cover...



Except on my dad's, the red sign (to the right of the Beatles) has writing on it: 'Large VWorld Records', which I'm guessing is some sort of typo from the logo on the top right of the album 'Lager Records'... To the top left is a code, "LW127".

Here's the back...



I found this picture of the vinyl itself on the internet - my dad's has a black label instead of blue.



Here's what the label looks like...




I'd really like to know if this is a bootlegg, where this comes from, and how much its worth.

If anyone could help, that'd be great.

Interesting... doesn't look familiar and my first husband used to collect Beatles' albums' like most of you collect SW... I've never seen this one- that I remember.  I would say it's most definitely a bootleg as that's not the UK release cover of Rubber Soul, and the album wasn't released as Rubber Soul here in the states (from what I can recall).   
Unless it has some rare tracks I doubt it's worth very much... what are the tracks- do you know?
You are starting to damage my calm.

From what I remember (I was looking at it this evening but my memory is crap), the tracks are the same as the standard release.

I'd ask the guys here:
The Message Board of the Record Collectors Guild

My guess is it's a bootleg.
