  THE BEATLES' STORY
CAPITOL TBO-2222 MONO
RELEASED: 11/23/64
EAST COAST

RARE RCA PRESSING
FIRST ISSUE VERSION:
RECORD 1: SIDES 1 & 2 / RECORD 2: SIDES 3 & 4


THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE ALBUMS FOR "THE BEATLES' STORY" CONTAIN RECORDS THAT HAVE SIDES ONE AND FOUR ON ONE DISC, AND SIDES TWO AND THREE ON THE OTHER. THIS CONFIGURATION (1/4/2/3 PAIRINGS) WAS DONE TO ACCOMMODATE PURCHASERS WHO HAD TURNTABLES WITH SPINDLE POLES AND A BALANCING ARM THAT ALLOWED FOR THE STACKING AND CONTINUOUS PLAY OF SEVERAL RECORDS IN A ROW.

YET, A SMALL NUMBER OF THE EAST AND WEST COAST RECORDS PRODUCED BY RCA RECORDS, HAVE THE RARER FIRST PRESSING WHERE SIDES ONE AND TWO IS ON ONE DISC, AND SIDES THREE AND FOUR ON THE OTHER (CAP 2222.MR1A(ii), SPIZER). SINCE THIS CONFIGURATION (1/2/3/4 PAIRINGS) WERE MANUFACTURED BY THE SUBCONTRACTOR RCA RECORDS, THEY WERE PRESSED IN LESSER QUANTITIES AND ARE MUCH SCARCER AND VALUABLE THAN THE STANDARD 1/4/2/3 PAIRING RECORDS.

THE COVER IS A BEAUTIFUL CLEAN, WHITE AND SOLID NEAR MINT MINUS, WITH SOME SMALL CORNER TIP WEAR ON THE BACK COVER MOUTH OPENING. THE RECORDS ARE A TREMENDOUS AND GLISTENING NEAR MINT, PERHAPS PLAYED ONCE THEN STORED. THE LABELS ARE SO GLOSSY AND GORGEOUS AS WELL.
