    This is not a bootleg! I don't think so anyway, but if the Gorts feel otherwise, zap away and accept my apologies. This disc was issued in Japan in the early or mid-80's and is the best sounding disc I've heard of the Beatles' Decca audition (with Pete Best on drums). It does not include the three Lennon/McCartney originals.

    The seller dropped the price from when it was originally listed and there are just a few hours left. I don't know how often this disc comes up. I do not see it often.

    He also is selling Herb Alpert's Whipped Cream, which is worth it for the cover alone!

    Interesting...."long out of print" means two years? :rolleyes: I'll be curious to see what Whipped Cream closes for, with the back insert missing.

    I didn't notice the back insert was missing or I would have mentioned that. I didn't bid anyway. I thought the Alpert discs were OOP for much longer than 2 years. Can't argue with you, Rudy!

    No one has bid on the Beatles disc - 20 minutes left! This disc is mono and uses no NR!

    Whipped Cream sold for $33. Not too shabby!

    I'm guessing two years out of print--it sounds about right. My buddy who owns a music store might still remember the exact cut-out date for it.

    The Beatles CD is missing the OBI.

    I am still amazed by how much those Herb Alpert discs go for. It's strange to think that so many titles of a well-known artist on a major label like A&M would be so rare. I still feel like I will walk into a used CD shop and find discs like these. I can see people getting rid of Alpert discs at a used shop with the seller and the store having no concept of their rarity. Admittedly, I haven't found these discs yet. All I've found (and passed on) have been US pressings of the greatest hits compilation and the Classics Vol. # compilation.

    If I think of it I look for the Alpert discs, too, when I'm in a used CD store. My family had the original LP's so I am somewhat familiar with the music.
