Offered for sale is an original red vinyl copy of the 1965 Japan-only compilation album 95 Million People’s Popular Request Vol. 3, featuring tracks by the Beatles, the Dave Clark Five, and others, and including the original obi.
This was Volume 3 in a three- volume series of compilation albums featuring British Invasion artists, and is the hardest of the three titles to find. This album includes three tracks by the Beatles – “Help!”, “Yesterday,” and “You’re Going to Lose That Girl.”
About this copy: This copy of 95 Million People’s Popular Request Vol. 3 is a 1965 Japanese pressing on the Odeon label, pressed on “Everclean” red vinyl.
The cover is M- with slight discoloration on the back cover from age, but no writing, tears, or wear. The obi obscures all of the text on the cover, so we’ve included photos with the obi removed to make it easier to read.
The obi is visually VG+. There are repaired tears at the top and bottom edge that have been repaired using part of an obi from another album that came out about the same time.
The envelope-style paper inner sleeve is VG+ with moderate foxing, but no tears. The insert is VG+ with moderate foxing, but no tears.
The red vinyl disc is VG++, with a couple of very faint sleeve scuffs. There are a number of spindle marks on the labels. It’s a clean disc that has been well cared for.
A nice copy of a great compilation album that’s hard to find complete.
