The Savage Young Beatles Sealed LP (Savage 69,1965). A compilation of Beatles recordings in Hamburg, Germany in 1961 when "My Bonnie" was recorded. Pete Best was the group's drummer in these pre-Ringo days when the group backed Tony Sheridan. Issued in October of 1965 this copy is still factory-sealed with a cover grading at Mint-9 and and unplayed record grading at Gem Mint-10. The shrinkwrap "baggy" seal on this album is typical of authentic still sealed LP's from this time on some labels. From The Stan Panenka Beatles Vinyl Collection.
Possessing a Beatles record collection so astounding we've never seen its equal, Stan Panenka is a name known by virtually every serious Beatles collector. Though his first Beatles record was Hey Jude, bought in 1970, it wasn't until 1990 with his purchase of a copy of the Decca single "My Bonnie" that Stan began seriously collecting high-end American Beatles vinyl. Since then, his collection has grown to colossal proportions, in terms of both quantity and quality, making it quite possibly the greatest collection of United States-pressed Beatles records ever known. A large part of what makes this collection so important are his condition standards, which are stringent even among high-end dealers. In most cases he's never bought an album that wasn't at least Near Mint, bringing a "just-left-the-pressing-plant" quality to great deal of the items in this incredible accumulation. As one of the preeminent experts in American Beatles records, Stan has written well-received price guides on Beatles vinyl, and is a walking treasure trove of information on the subject!
