Just don’t call it a bootleg.
Over 50 years since its original release in 1962, Mischief Music have capitalised on its expired UK copyright to reissue The Beatles’ “Love Me Do” as a heart-shaped 7″. Apparently limited to 500 copies, the novelty reissue features the fab four’s breakthrough single backed by “P.S. I Love You”, and continues Mischief Music’s multi-coloured ex-copyright reissue series, with Elvis’ Sun Records singles and a besplattered collection of Bob Dylan cuts also surfacing earlier this year.
In line with Mischief Music’s inconspicuous internet presence, “Love Me Do” is currently only available for pre-oder via Amazon, and will be released on July 26th. Get it before Apple melt it down. [via Super Deluxe Edition]
