A quick guide to identifying an original Australian John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band  LP:

Hi, my name is Peter.  Below is another quick guide and this time I'm concentrating on the Australian issue of the album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band:

Identifying an original first issue of John Lennon's Australian release of John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band is actually quite easy.

1) The first issue cover was a single and came fully laminated front and back.

2) The first issue lyric inner was a single page unlike later issues which were a folded inner.

3) The record was heavy 150g or more.

4) The record label was a custom white Apple version which John Lennon preferred.

Note: The Australian issue was censored so you don't have the swear words in the songs.  This is unfortunate as I think it takes away the impact that John Lennon wanted.  I prefer it as it was originally intended.  Still, censored or not, it's a great album.  A master piece.

So as you can see identifying this LP as an original first issue is quite easy.  Finding one, now that's a different matter.
