Beatles Rare Early 1964 1st Issue Stereo "meet The Beatles" Album No Pub Credit For Sale
VINTAGE AND VERY RARE, VERY FIRST U.S. STEREO ISSUE OF THE CLASSIC, "MEET THE BEATLES" ALBUM! THIS EARLY VERSION DOES NOT HAVE THE PUBLISHING CREDITS PRINTED UNDER EACH SONG! COVER IN THE ORIGINAL WRAP!
THIS IS THE RARE VERY FIRST ISSUE 'MEET THE BEATLES' **STEREO** ALBUM! (Capitol ST-2047). **AND THIS ONE IS IN VERY NICE SHAPE HAVING A NM- COVER IN THE ORIGINAL LOOSE STYLE WRAPPING (BUT FITS TIGHT ON THIS ONE!) AND A VG+ RECORD WITH NEAR MINT- LABELS! INDEED, THIS IS THE VERY FIRST VERSION OF THIS ALBUM RELEASED IN 1964! THIS VERSION FEATURES THE LABELS LACKING THE PUBLISHING PRINT "BMI" OR "ASCAP" ON THE LABELS. ONLY THE FIRST 200,000 WERE PRESSED THIS WAY AND ALL SUBSEQUENT ISSUES ADDED THE PRINT. HISTORY HAS SHOWN THAT THE ACTUAL NUMBER PRESSED IS PROBABLY FAR LESS. ......OF THOSE INITIAL PRESS NUMBERS, ONLY A VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE WERE PRESSED IN "STEREO"! NO DOUBT THESE EARLY COPIES WERE SWEPT OFF THE SHELVES DURING THE THE ONSLAUGHT OF BEATLEMANIA AND MOST HAVE BEEN PLAYED BEYOND RECOGNITION AND TOSSED OUT! TODAY, ONLY ABOUT 200 0R SO EXAMPLES HAVE BEEN VERIFIED SO FAR TO SURVIVE AND OF THOSE VERY FEW WERE STEREO COPIES! THE COVER IS THE CORRECT VERSION TOO WITH TAN LARGE "BEATLES" LETTERS ON THE FRONT AND NO "PRODUCED BY GEORGE MARTIN" PRINT ON THE BACK. IT ALSO HAS THE SMALL NUMBER "3" ON THE BACK LOWER RIGHT CORNER IDENTIFYING IT AS A SCRANTON, PA USA MADE COVER. THE RECORD IS ALSO A SCRANTON, PA PRESSED ALBUM. HAS THE POLISHED SEMI-GLOSS LABELS. BOTH SIDES ARE ABSOLUTE FIRST ISSUES AND DO NOT HAVE THE PUBLISHING PRINT ON THEM. COVER IS NEAR MINT- WITH A SMALL PUSH TO THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER WITH VERY LIGHT TIP RUB THERE.
