Offered for sale is a 1976 pressing of the compilation LP Hey Jude by the Beatles.

Following the success of 1968’s White Album, properly titled, The Beatles, Apple Records put together a compilation album of songs that had not previously been released by either Apple or Capitol Records.  The resulting album was to be entitled The Beatles Again, a play on the title of their previous outing.

The songs on the album covered most of their career, starting with I Should Have Known Better and Can’t Buy Me Love from 1964, Paperback Writer and Rain, from 1966, and some non-album singles from 1968 and 1969 – The Ballad of John and Yoko and Old Brown Shoe, Lady Madonna and Don’t Let Me Down, and of course, Hey Jude and Revolution.  After some records had been pressed showing the title of the album as The Beatles Again, the band and/or record company decided to change the title of the album to Hey Jude.

The resulting album was a success, reaching #2 on the U.S. album charts and selling more than 3 million copies.

About this copy: This copy of Hey Jude is a Japanese pressing, pressed on high quality vinyl.  This particular copy is the second Japanese issue, released in 1976.

The cover is VG++, with traces of wear at the edges and corners.  There is a sticker for a record distributor on the back cover.  The lyric insert is included; the obi is missing.

The record is M- and appears to have had little, if any play.

A nice copy of a terrific album.
