I decided that this was too good to bury in my budget thread. A UK Beatles demo has to be the jewel in the crown of any serious Beatles collection, right? Even better if it comes at a "budget" price! 255 on ebay. The seller even delivered it by hand.
Yes, the middle's popped, but the disc offers an excellent play, with a few light marks and no noise.

Thanks! I optimistically judged that the popped middle would deter the high rollers. I have to say that I have been wearing a "Cheshire Cat" expression since receiving it.

That was my 1st demo too, now I just need LMD to complete, highly unlikely I guess!
Well done to you!

The only other "affordable" UK Demo's I have are Yesterday & USSR. I doubt that even I can be that lucky to grab another demo at a bargain price.

Well its a start and you never know!
It has taken me a long long time to get them. I now have all the solo demos and Apple demos! So to have one missing is annoying. I did see a LMD demo without a centre (rare like that and almost all are intact) but the label was badly written on etc. It went for over 700, maybe I have a little regret now but Id pay that now I think just to say I have one!

As you've seen in my budget thread, many of my finds are way from mint. I always buy something if I don't have it, and it's not overpriced. At least you can then have a more leisurely search for that upgrade at a good price.

PS, I don't think Mrs Halsey would suffer a houseful of Beatles demo's, as this would certainly impact on her lifestyle!

Not quite a 'divorce proceedings' price there - great snatch at a bargain price!

I promised myself something special when I retired. Fuh was on the list but Mrs.H made her feelings quite clear on that one. I certainly didn't expect such a treat to come in at that price and, to be honest, I bid much higher than the finishing price.

PS The grin is still firmly attached to my face.

i confess I did spend big on my LMD demo ( 2k) and more recently 1.5k on a AHDN demo ( i could not let it pass ) but my popped centre HG is now looking like more of a bargain as every attempt to upgrade has led in failure, thks for posting Admiral !!!

I have always dreamt of having a UK Beatles demo. Whilst nice to have, the 1976 Demo's are a bit " Mickey mouse " by comparison. I doubt that my luck will permit another such demo finding it's way into my collection, but hey , never say never!
Thanks for the feedback guys
