  DESCRIPTION
(ACTUAL SCANS)

DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE FIRST LABEL VARIATION (WITHOUT PUBLISHING CREDITS) OF THIS LP WAS SOLELY PRODUCED ON THE EAST COAST, THE SECOND LABEL (ONE "BMI" CREDIT) PRESSED IN LOS ANGELES, IS THEREFORE THE VERY FIRST PRESSING OF THE ALBUM ON THE WEST COAST. FURTHERMORE, ON PAGE 19, OF BRUCE SPIZER'S GREAT "CAPITOL ALBUMS" BOOK, HE STATES THE FACT THAT THE STEREO VARIATION OF THIS LABEL STYLE SHOULD EXIST, BUT AS OF PRESS TIME, IT WAS NOT CONFIRMED.

IT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED SINCE - AND HERE IS ONE OF THE VERY FEW MEGA-RARE COPIES TO TURN UP. THIS LOS ANGELES PRESSING IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING WITH THE RECORD GRADING A STELLAR MINT MINUS "UNPLAYED" GEM. THE LOS ANGELES "GLOSSY" LABELS ARE EQUALLY TREMENDOUS AND RADIATE BEAUTIFULLY.

THIS WONDERFUL RARER WEST COAST EARLY FEBRUARY 1964 PRESSING #6 COVER, HAS "BEATLES!" IN OLIVE GREEN PRINT LETTERING, AND DOES NOT HAVE THE "PRODUCED BY GEORGE MARTIN" CREDIT PRINT ON THE BACK COVER (CAP2047.SC1A, SPIZER). THE "STEREO NEEDLE DAMAGE" INFO AT BOTTOM OF BACK COVER IS ALSO EVIDENT.

ALSO INCLUDES THE ORIGINAL LOS ANGELES FIRST ISSUE CAPITOL RECORDS LATE 1963 ROYAL BLUE INNER DUST SLEEVE.

IT HAS BEEN DOCUMENTED THAT 80% OF CAPITOL'S ALBUMS WERE PRESSED ON THE EAST COAST, THEREFORE MAKING THE WEST COAST PRESSINGS OF THE FIRST THREE LABEL VARIATIONS OF "MEET THE BEATLES!" CLEARLY MORE SCARCE.
