Production master tapes for the first albums released by both The Beatles (''Please Please Me''), and for James Taylor (his eponymous ''James Taylor''). The Beatles production master tape for ''Please Please Me'' is side one, used in Australia beginning in 1974 to replace the original master issued when the album debuted in 1963. Quarter-inch tape measures 10.5'' in diameter, housed in its original EMI Recording Studios box, with the seven tracks and the timelog handwritten, beginning with ''I Saw Her Standing There'' and ending with ''Please Please Me''. The orange Parlophone album label appears at upper right.

James Taylor production master tape is for his critically acclaimed self-titled first album, ''James Taylor'' featuring the original versions of the songs ''Something in the Way She Moves'' and ''Carolina in My Mind''. Quarter-inch tape was used to make the vinyl records in Australia beginning in 1968 when the album debuted, and is housed in its original box with Trident Studios sheet taped to back, listing the twelve tracks and the date of 29 October 1968, about five weeks before the album's release. Accompanied by original 1968 UK pressing of the album. Tape measures 10.5'' in diameter, housed in cover with Apple record label attached (Taylor was the first non-British artist signed to Apple), and then in EMI tape box measuring 11'' x 10.75'', the same size as the EMI box for ''Please Please Me''. Very good condition for both master tapes, which are part of only a small number of such tapes sent to regional record companies to press the vinyl albums for their local markets, perhaps the only ones extant apart from the original master.
