LP inNM condition was DAVE HULL's own personal one. Condition is nowhere
near as important on rare items like this as is the fact that this scarce PROMO LP
was very limited in distribution and is extremely RARE & SCARCE to say the least.
Actually finding one of these in ANY CONDITION would be a remarkable feat in
itself! The surfaces have only some hairline marks but plays great. Once again, trying
to find this rare record in NM condition is almost impossible. The accompanying cover
( a stock commercial cover with no promo markings) was issued with this record. This
Album was never issued in a PROMO cover .
Included with this PROMO LP are some very special historical documents; a set of
THREE (3) original Vee Jay Records invoices with some copies of checks dated
back from September & October 1964 , made out to a gentleman by the name
of Dayton Burr Howe for his engineering services on this LP , for which he was
never credited. He later became known as "Bones" Howe , a successful recording
engineer, producer, music supervisor and a musician. Mr. Howe was known to have
also worked with ..... Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, The Everly Brothers &
Jerry Lee Lewis among others.
(This documentation & historical info becomes a great addition to this already
extremely valuable and RARE LP .)
Has BRACKETS [VJ] Labels. Very clean. WHITE LABEL / BLUE PRINT.
COVER / OUTER JACKET is around VG+.

A LITTLE BACKGROUND INFORMATION ABOUT THIS RARE ITEM:
On 8-24-64, Jim Steck interviewed JOHN LENNON and on 8-25-64 Dave Hull interviewed
all the BEATLES in Los Angeles. Vee Jay Records issued this in the U.S.A. as a PROMO
release during the BEATLES 1964 summer tour officially on 9-14-64. The discussions on
both the "A" & "B" Sides include background noise consisting of consisting of sporadic
drumming and bongos, percussion and what appears to be some kind of tubular bells. The
sleeve identifies this as being edited & scored by Lou Adler, with percussion by Hal Blaine.
FRONT COVER of LP states: “LIVE IN PERSON INTERVIEWS RECORDED DURING
THEIR LATEST-AMERICAN TOUR" in RED across the top of the cover. Right below this
is the title of the LP appearing in white block letters on an angled black rectangular banner.
Phrases and questions relating to the interviews appear randomly throughout the lower 3/4
of the cover. The back of the album cover is reminiscent of the AD BACK cover on the 1st
issue of INTRODUCING THE BEATLES featuring miniature pictures of album covers and
singles picture sleeves. But rather than VJ promoting OTHER FINE ALBUMS OF SIGNIFICANT INTEREST
on this LP, the cover plugs 4 Beatles Vee-Jay & TOLLIE singles and their most recently
released LPs: Songs, Pictures and Stories of The Fabulous Beatles, The Beatles
vs. The Four Seasons and The Beatles & Frank Ifield On Stage (Portrait Cover) .
Oddly, their most popular album, INTRODUCING THE BEATLES is not pictured.
