  DESCRIPTION

FACTORY #6, LOS ANGELES, CA.. PRESSING.

EXTREMELY TIGHT SEAL CORNER TO CORNER. NO RIPS, NO BREAKS. NO TEARS.

BLUE INNER SLEEVE (EARLY TO MID 1964 CAPITOL SLEEVE) BARELY VISIBLE THROUGH MOUTH OPENING, SIGNIFYING THIS IS AN EARLY PRESSING.
4 FACTORY SHRINK "BREATH HOLES" EVIDENT (2 ON FRONT COVER & 2 ON BACK COVER).

USUALLY, THE FACTORY NUMBER APPEARS ON THE BACK COVERS OF CAPITOL ALBUMS. VERY INTERESTING HIGHLIGHT HERE, IS THAT THIS NUMBER '6' IS VISIBLE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FRONT SIDE OF THE COVER AT THE LEFT SIDE EDGE NEAR THE SPINE (SEE SCAN BELOW). THIS OCCURRED DUE TO THE BACK SLICK BEING APPLIED A BIT TOO FAR OVER AND WRAPPED A TOUCH TO THE FRONT.

"STEREO NEEDLE DAMAGE" PRINT INFO IS ON BOTTOM BACK COVER, SIGNIFYING THIS IS TRUE FIRST ISSUE.

THIS STEREO TITLE, BEING CAPITOL'S 1964 SUMMER RELEASE, WHICH INCLUDED TRACKS FROM "A HARD DAY'S NIGHT" - IS QUITE A SEALED FIND - AND IT IS AN ABSOLUTE GEM. STEREO COPIES OF BEATLES ALBUMS MANUFACTURED PRIOR TO 1967 ARE SIGNIFICANTLY RARER THAN THEIR MONO COUNTERPARTS. IT'S ESTIMATED THAT ONLY TEN PERCENT OF CAPITOL'S BEATLES ALBUMS MANUFACTURED PRIOR TO 1967 WERE STEREO.

THE SPINE AND ITS PRINT IS ABSOLUTE PERFECTION. ALL FOUR CORNERS ARE SHARP.

THERE IS SIMPLY NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS SEALED EXAMPLE. STELLAR PERFECTION CORNER TO CORNER.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ANY HINT OF "BROWNING" OR "MELLOWING" THAT APPEAR IN ANY WHITE EDGE AREAS OF THIS ITEM IS CAUSED BY THE CAMERA ANGLE AND ITS FLASH. ALL WHITE AREAS ARE CLEAN.
