This is one of the Best Examples of this classic LP ever. This is the RARE VERSION 1 "STEREO AD BACK" by the BEATLES. Vee Jay Records Catalog #SR-1062. Was their very 1st American Album released on JANUARY 10, 1964 just prior to Capital records releasing their 1st BEATLES album around the same period only weeks apart.
Because of the famous impending lawsuit between. Vee Jay and Capitol , the release of this LP was a race against time. It is a collection of tunes. That were previously recorded in the UK on the Parlophone Label in 1963. The back of the jacket illustrates 25 miniature pictures of other LPs available from Vee Jay.
The rarity here is both the OUTER JACKET , and the fact that it's a RARE STEREO PRESSING. In fact in official documents retrieved from official Vee Jay (invoices), indicates that only 2,202 VERSION 1 STEREO RECORDS WERE EVER PRESSED , making it one of the RAREST VINYL ALBUMS EVER PRODUCED. It's also important to note that even a MONO VERSION 1 disc, with only a total pressing of 79,169 , makes this variation a rare LP in it's own right. The bottom line is that ANY VERSION 1 is quite a find, but finding a STEREO in great condition like this particular example, is nearly impossible these days. The label indicates that it's a bonifide STEREO (the word STEREO is located to the right of the center hole).
T he word STEREOPHONIC is located at the top of the FRONT COVER on the white banner in GRAY PRINT. The words "Printed In USA" are running vertically on the the lower left side of the cover. On the label is VJLPS 1062 and the matrix numbers on SIDE 1 are 63-3402 , with 63-3403 on SIDE 2. VERSION 1 pressings featured songs "LOVE ME DO " and P.I LOVE YOU" and NOT "PLEASE PLEASE. ME" and "ASK ME WHY which were later substituted on the VERSION 2 pressings. The vinyl is in Beautiful condition and t he OUTER JACKET is quite nice as well having with NO SPLITS and NO WRITING. Be hard pressed to find one of these RARE STEREOS in this great condition. Most have been trashed over the course of time since its original 1964 release during the height of BEATLEMANIA. This is a true RARITY and one of the most collectible BEATLES ARTIFACTS. Actually it should be in a museum, but it would better on a collector's shelf! "I SAW HER STANDING THERE". "DO YOU WANT TO KNOW A SECRET". These LPs are getting much harder to find in such beautiful condition. A Great Addition to any BEATLES COLLECTION!
