   Help! LP-012

ITEM #: LP-012
Description: Help! — mono copy, 1st label
Record Label: Capitol
Catalog #: MAS 2386
Year of Release/Pressing: 1965
Record: VG+
Jacket: VG
Price: $100 $55


This is a nice mono copy of the eighth US Beatles release on Capitol records. It's the 1st label, with no "Ken Thorne" composer credits for tracks A6, B4, and B6, and also no reference to "You Can't Do That" in track B4; the record would be VG++ or maybe even NM- except for a few little marks.

The jacket would be VG+ if not for the dogeared left corner (left from front view), the partial split on the top edge, and the little bit of ring wear (mostly on the back); the jacket also has a printing misalignment which placed the "2386" from the catalog number onto the back instead of on the spine (which should be visible in the pictures). This copy includes a plain white inner sleeve.

Matrix / Runout (runout A (leading T scratched out)): M1-2386-F3#3
Matrix / Runout (runout B (leading T scratched out)): M2-2386-F1#2

Book value for a NM copy of this version of this release is between $300-500:
CAPITOL (MAS-2386 "Help!").......................................300-500 (1965)
(Monaural.)
  (from the Rockin' Records 2018-2019 Record Price Guide)

...and so that places the value of this copy at around $100-175.
