An original red vinyl Japanese pressing of Hey Jude by the Beatles, complete with obi.

This item has been sold.


Offered for sale is an original 1970 red vinyl Japanese pressing of Hey Jude by the Beatles, complete with original die-cut obi.

Hey Jude was a compilation LP put together by Beatles management, rather than Capitol or Parlophone Records.  The release was intended to capitalize on the success of the group’s recent #1 single, “Hey Jude.”

The album consisted of a number of songs that had either been previously released as singles or which had not previously been released on Capitol/Apple albums.

The album reached #1 in the U.S., but wasn’t released in the UK until a few years later.

As with the original release of most albums by the Beatles, Hey Jude was issued on red vinyl in Japan.

About this copy:  This copy of Hey Jude is an original red vinyl Japanese pressing, complete with original obi.

The cover is very close to M-, with traces of wear at the corners.  The obi is VG, with some fading and wrinkling and a cellophane tape stain (but no tape) on the back.  The “hojyuhyo”, or reorder tag, is still attached.

The original black inner sleeve and lyric insert are included.

The red vinyl disc is M- and aside from a couple of spindle marks, appears to have had little, if any play.

A terrific copy of an album that’s quite hard to find complete, as the die-cut obi is quite fragile and is usually missing.
