ON THIS DATE (49 YEARS AGO)
April 26, 1963 – The Beatles: Please Please Me (Parlophone PCS 3047) STEREO version is released in the UK.
The STEREO version is released almost six weeks after the MONO version of Please Please Me [PMC 1202] (March 22, 1963) is released. This is the only time that releases were issued on separate dates. Finding a true first pressing stereo in mint condition will most likely set you back a couple of thousand $$
