  • BUGGS (The): Beetle Beat LP, Coronet CX-212 Hi-Fid. 1964 (EX)

    There is only 1 item left in stock.

    BUGGS, The.  WIth their LP BEETLE BEAT.  Featuring I Want To Hold Your Hand.  Coronet CX-212.  THE ORIGINAL LIVERPOOL SOUND.  Released in March of 1964.  This says it was recorded in England, but printed in USA under Coronet Records CX 212.  I also read elsewhere where this was not true.  They were guys from New Jersey mimicking a Liverpool band.  There's a lot of info about this under wikipedia.  A lot of people thought this was an actual Beatles album!  Notes are given about Coronet's high fidelity monophonic recordings that can be played on stereo equipment and is enhanced when doing so! 

    Side 1:  I Want To Hold Your Hand; Mersey Mersey; Soho Mash; East End; London Town Swing.
    Side 2:  She Loves You; Liverpool Drag; Swingin' Thames; Big Ben Hop; Teddy 'Boy Stomp.

    THE LP is thick and heavy!   The cover is still in shrink wrap, but opened.  No ringwear present.  Good corners, no seam tears.  The black label is in great shape, too.  It's still shiny and wasn't played much.  I just see a few light scuffs on both sides and minimal tiny surface scratches (unfeelable).  The crazy thing is I see on Side 2 that there are about 10 tiny reverse 'bubbles' (or maybe called tiny indents) on that side!  But they didn't cause any defects in playback. I'm sure it was something in the manufacturing of the vinyl that this happened. No skips or pops or crackles.  Sound quality was crisp and sharp! 

    I give the cover sleeve a Near Mint (NM) and the vinyl a NM also, except it probably should go down to EX because of the light scuffs and reverse bubbles I see, which do not affect sound performance though.
