Good Morning @Delta L 1011. I'm very glad you enjoyed the Beatles tunes & as always your knowledge of them amazes me. You must have an incredible collection of music. Thanks for sharing. Whenever I play The Beatles I always think of how much you love them too! Enjoy your Sunday!!@Binky "could not get my Lenovo 8th Generation T590 ) for
ThinkPad PC (w/14" screen) to load". LOL. "no problem, took
me less than 3 minutes to locate, (next room in my study)
original vinyl LP (United Artists) High Fidelity "The Beatles"
(Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) UAL #3366, Side 2,
song #2, "If I Fell" 2min 16 seconds song !!!
I guesstimate, I bought this original vinyl LP, as a kid, in
summer of 1964, in Myrtle Beach SC USA, after seeing the
b&w movie "A Hard Day's Night".. condition: cover is a 5
(good) with all 2 inserts, but not play graded it yet, "very
well worn" maybe on a scale of 1 to 10, "better than poor,
but, imho, "far" below a minimum Good (grade 5). Mine is
the more common Black label of United Artists.
A original vinyl LP with the red & white outer LP cover,
(for collector's) used to run, about US $175 to US $200.
The ultra rare "USA" version of United Artists, "white label"
on the vinyl LP, used to run from US $200 to US $225.00
of course, if play graded, and, more likely closer to a
"7" Very Good to a "9" Near Mint, as a "10" Mint, imho,
are nearly impossible to find. (mine FYI is a original)
Note: from pg 83 of my source: a "pink label" on the
vinyl LP, #UAL-6366 was allegedly made in 1964, &
if authentic, (August 2007) the price in US dollars, was
(if a #9 "near mint" was from US $10,000.00 to as much
as US $12,000.00 !

counterfeited. If in doubt, have potential purchases,
authenticated by a expert" unquote.
etc). Source from above quote: (below): imho, of course.
