FOLKS, I'VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR NEARLY 40 YEARS NOW! THIS IS THE BEST STEREO EXAMPLE OF THIS ALBUM COVER I'VE EVER SEEN! THIS IS NOTHING SHORT OF AN INCREDIBLE ORIGINAL EARLY 1964 " INTRODUCING THE BEATLES " STEREO VERY FIRST ISSUE ALBUM FEATURING THE ' COLOR ADS OF OTHER VJ LPs ' ON THE BACK COVER! THIS IS INDEED, THE BEST EXAMPLE I HAVE EVER SEEN OR OFFERED! WITH A GREAT RECORD INCLUDED! IT IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE I'VE SEEN WITH THE COVER IN THE ORIGINAL RETAIL SHRINKWRAP! TRULY, THE ULTIMATE MUSEUM QUALITY EXAMPLE! THIS WOULD BE THE CROWING JEWEL FOR ANY COLLECTION!
TALK ABOUT THE ULTIMATE HISTORICAL AND COLLECTIBLE BEATLES ALBUM, THIS ONE IS SIMPLY THE MOST COVETED VEE JAY BEATLES ALBUM COVER ON THE PLANET! RIGHT ALONG WITH A STEREO FIRST STATE ' BUTCHER COVER ', BUT MUCH SCARCER THAN THAT IN THIS INCREDIBLE CONDITION! ... AN ORIGINAL VERY EARLY 1964 VEE JAY RECORDS VERSION ONE ' INTRODUCING THE BEATLES ' ALBUM IN STEREO WITH THE ADS OF OTHER LP'S ON THE BACK COVER! COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS SIMPLY " THE AD BACK ", THIS ALBUM IS HARD TO FIND IN ANY CONDITION! BUT WITH THE COVER IN THIS SUPERB INCREDIBLE NEAR MINT CONDITION, IT'S VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE! (Vee Jay VJLPS-1062). COVER IS SIMPLY STUNNING! NO CREASES! FOUR SHARP CORNERS! NO SEAM SPLITS AT ALL! NO CREASES! THE SPINE PRINT IS 100% ALL THERE TOP TO BOTTOM! NO WRITING! NO STAINS! NO WEAR ON THE ADS ON THE BACK COVER! AS IN ' ZERO '! THE RECORD HAS NEAR MINT LABELS AND VG+++ VINYL. THIS IS A CORRECT VERSION ONE RECORD FOR THE COVER TOO (WITH THE SONGS "LOVE ME DO" AND "P.S. I LOVE YOU" AND IS THE ONE ISSUED WITH THE COVER. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR THE ULTIMATE BEATLES VJ ALBUM COVER IN FANTASTIC WORLD CLASS COLLECTOR GRADE CONDITION, YOU'VE FINALLY FOUND IT! IT'S BEEN A GOOD LONG TIME SINCE I'VE BEEN ABLE TO OFFER A WORLD CLASS EXAMPLE OF THIS ALBUM COVER! THIS ONE IS IN THE TWO EXAMPLES IN THE WORLD THAT I KNOW OF, AND WITH THE ORIGINAL SHRINKWRAP, IT BECOMES THE BEST! NOTE THE RECORD USED ON THE FIRST ISSUE COVERS WERE ALSO ISSUED ON THE BLANK BACK, AND THE COLUMN BACK VERSION COVERS. BUT THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE VERY FIRST ISSUE OF THE COVER ISSUED IN THE USA IN EARLY 1964! NOTE, THAT MOST OF THE EARLY ISSUE ' AD BACK ' LP VERSIONS WERE NOT ISSUED IN THE SHRINKWRAP. THIS LP HAS ORIGINAL SHRINKWRAP GUARANTEED! IT WAS VERY LIKELY SOLD NEAR THE END OF THE ' AD BACK ' STYLE COVER PRINTING WHEN SHRINKWRAP WAS MORE COMMONLY USED. NOTE, I HAVE CLOSER IMAGES OF BOTH SIDES OF THE LABELS SO I WILL BE HAPPY TO SEND THOSE IMAGES ON REQUEST. EBAY ONLY ALLOWED 12 IMAGES IN THE LISTING. ALSO HAS THE ORIGINAL VJ INNER SLEEVE PRESENT (vg with some side splits.) SO HERE IT IS FOLKS! THE VERY BEST (or at least, there isn't one better!) AD BACK COVER KNOWN TO EXIST! I KNOW OF ONE COVER THAT IS AS NICE WITHOUT THE WRAP, BUT THIS ONE HAS THE WRAP RETAINED ON IT! TO DATE, A SEALED EXAMPLE HAS NEVER BEEN VERIFIED. THESE WERE SOLD SO EARLY ON IN THE ' BEATLEMANIA ' DAYS, SO MOST ALL WERE PLAYED RAGGED WITH MANY TOSSED OUT OVER THE YEARS! THIS VERSION ISN'T COMMON IN ANY CONDITION, BUT IN THIS CONDITION IT'S A WORLD CLASS MUSEUM QUALITY EXAMPLE! (Record has the black/colorand labels with the print "STEREO" at the 3:00 o'clock position.) AN EXAMPLE THIS CLEAN, IS HARDER TO FIND THAN JUST ABOUT ANY OTHER BEATLES ALBUM THERE IS! I KNOW OF MORE SEALED STEREO FIRST STATE BUTCHER COVERS THAN I DO A STEREO AD BACK LP COVER THIS BEAUTIFUL! (Note, the wrap only has a 4" separation at bottom right edge end. Cover is great and beautiful in that area!) (***Will be packed securely in strong boxing to insure safe arrival.***)
