Auction Description

"Rubber Soul" is a 1965 album by the British rock band, The Beatles, their sixth UK album, and the tenth released in America. Released on 3 December, it met with a highly favorable critical response and topped record charts in the United Kingdom for several weeks, as well as in the United States, where it was issued with a different set of tracks. "Rubber Soul" incorporates a mix of 1960's pop, soul and folk music styles. The album's name comes from the term plastic soul, which popular African American soul musicians coined to describe Mick Jagger, a white musician singing soul music. It was the second Beatles album-after the British album version of "A Hard Day's Night"- to contain only original material, and was recorded in just over four weeks to make the Christmas market. The album has been included in numerous "best of" album lists compiled by various publications, and is regarded by musicologists as a major artistic achievement that continued the group's artistic maturation while attaining widespread critical and commercial success. In 2012, "Rubber Soul" was ranked #5 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time". In 2013, after the British Phonographic Industry changed their sales rewards rules, the album was declared as having gone platinum. This is the ORIGINAL 1965 US Vinyl MONO Pressing on the Capitol label. The catalog # on the spine is: T 2442. There is a scratched out name on the back, top cover. Side 1 has some label missing on the top part. The record is visually graded by Goldmine standards as VG+. The cover is VG+. The cover has the heavy textured surface with no ring wear.
