  DESCRIPTION
(ACTUAL IMAGES)

The 1965 Christmas season was a very special time for Beatles fans. While previous albums had been collections of great performances, Rubber Soul is best appreciated when considered as an entire record - one that set a new standard for the Beatles and rock albums. George Martin's reflections indicate that this record's cohesive and innovative nature was intentional. "It was the first album to present a new, growing Beatles to the world. For the first time we began to think of albums as art on their own, as complete entities."

Capitol had complete confidence that THE "Rubber Soul" ALBUM would be a tremendous seller and had prepared a promotional poster, featuring a brown and white enlargement of the front album cover. The words "THE BEATLES" is in red, while the tease "12 BRAND NEW SONGS" is in brown print. In red print once again is "Never Before Available in the U.S.A".  The Capitol Logo is in brown print. To "Capitolize" on the Christmas holiday spirit, Capitol's in-store poster told consumers that the album was "GREAT FOR GIVING! OR JUST GROOVY LISTENING!".

FAB 4 COLLECTIBLES IS PLEASED TO OFFER This magnificent, very RARE ORIGINAL "RUBBER SOUL" in store PROMOTIONAL Poster. measurING
22" X 34", this example is in stupendous NEAR MINT "AS NEW", UnUSED Condition. NO rips, No tears, No tape, No tack holes. The graphics, clarity, and depth of this 1965 piece is just stunning. The edges are straight, ALL FOUR CORNERS ARE SHARP, and the white areas remain bright and crisp.

DUE TO THE FACT THAT these CAPITOL posters were shipped folded to record stores as opposed to rolled in tubes, they exhibit crease marks (like one-sheet movie posters). Yet, this particular poster was cared for and has RARELY BEEN UN-FOLDED. The natural FOLD LINES are very minimal and extremely faint -  as exhibited in our IMAGES BELOW. The CREASE AREAS are extremely clean. only small area of a natural stress folding wrinkle and faint wear is in the center near the printed capitol logo.

FROM THE BEATLES' GOLDEN AGE OF THE SIXTIES, THIS TREMENDOUS IN STORE POSTER WOULD BE AN IMPORTANT ADDITION TO A BEATLES COLLECTION, AND WOULD LOOK MAJESTIC WHEN PREPARED professionally WITH LINEN BACKING, THEN MATTED AND FRAMED.

ACCOMPANIED BY A LETTER OF AUTHENTICITY FROM PERRY COX, BEATLES U.S. RECORDS EXPERT AND AUTHOR OF "THE BEATLES RECORD PRICE GUIDE" SERIES OF BOOKS.
