definitely longer fades on 'While My guitar' etc. than on Cd release from the 80's unforunatly that's the version I grew up with, discovering the vinyl version after cleaning it twice, makes the Cd release sound like a fraud...even in G condition

Hey all - i have an copy still in shrink. I can't tell which edition, but spine shows SWBO 101. Any idea how to value it? Or definitively tell which version it is?

I have #0811310. Got it for $40 at a local record store. Poster and photos were included, everything is in pretty great shape for its age. I don't think my copy has banding between songs.

This is an album from a little known overlooked beat combo from Liverpool - *sigh* if only more people knew about them (maybe I was being a little sarcastic there)! Some really great tracks on this release and it's very eclectic covering every genre conceived that existed in 1968, though John's experimental piece - Revolution No. 9 is full-on unleaded nightmare fuel (Number nine, Number nine, Number nine,! ). Best tune by far on the album is Helter Skelter - A very amazing proto-metal song with some incredible vocals from Macca.

Probably the album I've listened to the most in my lifetime. I was fortunate to have a friend of mine give me an original 1968 version of the LP with the serial number. (2270403, by the way.) It's certainly one of my most prized possessions.
