This is extremely scarce vintage cassette of THE BEATLES - BEATLES FOR SALE.

This bizarre, apparently mis-pressed  example is the 1972 "Gold Top Inlay" UK reissue.
It has a two panel inlay, light grey (white) tape shell and white paper labels with black text.

It has been mistakenly manufactured with two extra tracks on the end of side two these being repeated versions of WHAT YOU'RE DOING and EVERYBODY'S TRYING TO BE MY BABY which also appear in their correct positions earlier on the album.
