COMMENTS
THE BEATLES - GREAT HITS LP (German Fono-Ring/Odeon, SFGLP 77 939, 1969)
One of the rarest German Beatles records. This is absolutely impossible to find (in such a great condition) original German Book Club Edition LP.
This record was rated 4 stars in Hans Pokora Rare Record Cover Book.

There are 2 mechanical (NOT "handwritten") stamps on EACH side (altogether 4 machine stamps): one is 12PAL - 4148 - SM - 1 and others are 4149 / 4150 / 4151

* GEMA (Gesellschaft für musikalische Aufführungs- und mechanische Vervielfältigungsrechte.) was started in 1915 and handles the copyright in Germany.
