My Imports - Beatles AND Solo Releases
Singles, E.P's and Albums

As I add detail to each release, the title will appear in Red as a "Link" (e.g. underlined).
Click on the linked title to see scan's, and some (hopefully) unique information.

This detail will be added to constantly as I get time.
I did NOT buy EVERY import release in the U.K., just those that were unique (not released in the U.K. ?) or in some way interesting, ie. Tracks never released in these formats or amazing sleeves, or .... well, you'll see ...

... and remember click on the Link's available below to see more detail.

EMI European codings mean the country of release can been readily identified from the first two characters, eg :
     1C = Germany
     2C = France
     3C = Italy
     4C = Belguim
     5C = Holland
     7C = Sweden
    10C = Spain
    11C = Portugal
    14C = Greece
Special note for Spain - "1J" instead of "10C" was used for several years (1969 to 1977, as from the "Get Back" single) to refer to records manufactured by EMI-Odeon in Spain, before the international "European codification". All references with "1J" were replaced by "10C" as from 1977.
(My thanks to Spanish correspondent "Bel" for correcting my European codings !)
