Not a Parlophone release.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love Me Do 12" [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Because 'Love Me Do' is over fifty years old and now out of copyright in the UK, a label called Mischief Music have taken full advantage by issuing this red heart-shaped vinyl. Note: this is not on the Parlophone label, nor does it have a limited edition number so as to wether just 500 have been pressed is questionable. Sent mine back to Amazon for a refund because it looks just like a tacky bootleg.

I expect we will now get a glut of "cash in type bootlegs" as subsequent Beatles releases become eligible for release. Thanks for the "heads up". I won't be purchasing either.

£19 quid for this rubbish. They're taking the mickey big style. How, much would it have cost to make - 50p?

I believe that the UK copyright terms were recently extended on all sound recordings that have been officially released - though not retrospective (so can't prevent the earliest Beatles recordings being exploited if they've already fallen out of copyright). It will, presumably (and hopefully), halt further releases of later singles. I believe there's also a 'use it or lose it' clause to this change which has meant previously unissued recordings by The Beatles, Dylan, etc. being released albeit very close to the deadlines.
