Beatles For Sale



This is probably the standard released mixes however the auction description below states it is mono (the disc was also auctioned in April 2005 where is was also described as mono) but the YEX matrix should indicate stereo.

The stereo mix is from reel TL15237 "BEATLES FOR SALE" (YEX 142/3). The mono mix is from reel TL15445 LP "BEATLES FOR SALE" (XEX 503/4) which Barrett dates both as 4 December 1964
(NOTE: the disc says November '64).
