First, I give my strongest praise and congratulations to the co-authors (Perry and Frank), along with additional kudos to Mr. Bruce Spizer who contributed the Foreword, layouts, editing and publishing in this beautiful edition (and yes, I own most of his incredible "labor of love" books surrounding The Beatles records). These gentlemen are what we collectors consider "The Source" when it comes to being specific, detailed, precise and answering the tough questions that come with collecting what I consider "the greatest music memorabilia of all time".
Secondly, I would like to take a moment and get personal about Perry Cox and what he means to me in this business. I have done business with Perry since the early 1980's (when, at that time, I was just a young sailor in the U.S. Navy and spending as much of my extra money on my #1 passion - Beatles records and memorabilia). Perry immediately befriended me and has been more of a "mentor" and a "personal confidant" during these 25 years of our friendship. He has yet to steer me wrong or not provide the tough answers throughout all these years and I greatly admire his passion, dedication and genuine love for the hobby more than anyone else that I have had the pleasure of sharing this excitement with in this hobby. I remember back in the 80's and most of the 90's when I would receive Perry's "mailer lists" that he religiously mailed out to those of us on his distro list.Read more ›
One nice touch with the 6th Edition is its size. It matches Bruce Spizer's reference guides and looks sharp up on the bookshelf along side of them. This price guide is hard bound with 330 pages of very informative info including prices and descriptions. I love that it's got a hard cover as my older guide pages would curl after a while. In addition to size, it's all full color and glossy. Gotta love that. Many newer collectors have never seen some of the items pictured in this guide. Very cool.
Many have contributed but most notably Frank Daniels and Bruce Spizer. Their knowledge of variations is legendary. Kudos to them for playing a big part in this creation. Bruce Spizer also has written the foreword for this edition.
The guide is laid out very intuitively to make items of interest easy to find. Some of the sections include, Singles and EPS, Albums, solo works by each former Beatle including Pete Best. Even George Martin is included. There are also Apple and Dark Horse sections and compilations.
Contents also include Market Analysis, Record Grading, Capitol inner sleeves, promotional items and much much more.
I personally give this guide high marks and would also venture to say that it's an automatic collectors item that is very affordable, at this time. Remember Bruce Spizer's Vee-Jay book?Read more ›
I've emailed Perry Cox with not only my congratulations but most importantly my gratitude for what he has provided to all of us who have enjoyed all-things-Beatle throughout the decades. His partner, Frank Daniels, is also to be lauded for his committment to the detailed minutia that benefit all of us in keeping track of our label variations, condition, and links to the Spizer I.D. information.
But since you can't always have everything (as my Irish dad would remind me back in the 60's as I asked him for that latest Beatle record!) I've noted here, and alerted Perry, of the following omissions from this first edition:
"Press To Play" CD w/blue graphics on disc, "Made In USA"
"Band On The Run" DTS compact disc in JEWEL CASE: Mobile Fidelity 71021-54403-2-3
"Venus and Mars" DTS compact disc in SUPER JEWEL CASE
"The World Tonight" CD single, not promo, w/sticker for movie "Father's Day": Capitol C2 7243 58650-2-2
"Hope Of Deliverance" CD single w/sticker "3 SONGS...Read more ›

Let's face it. Beatle memorabilia will always go up in price. Due to the fact that their story is as intense as the music itself it's really hard to pinpoint exactly what will go... Read morePublished on May 7, 2013 by beatlesexpert
