CAPITOL RECORDS
1968 "SUBSIDIARY" 45 SINGLE RELEASES

IN 1968, AS PART OF A CORPORATE RESTRUCTURING OF CAPITOL AND EMI, CAPITOL RECORDS, INC. BECAME A WHOLLY OWNED SUBSIDIARY OF A NEW ENTITY KNOWN AS CAPITOL INDUSTRIES, INC. THE DECISION WAS MADE TO IDENTIFY THE NEW ARRANGEMENT ON SUBSEQUENT CAPITOL RELEASES. THIS REQUIRED THE REPRINTING OF 45 SINGLES AND LP ALBUM LABELS TO REFLECT THE NEW OWNERSHIP.

FOR SINGLE RELEASES, THE PERIMETER PRINT WAS CHANGED TO "MFD. BY CAPITOL RECORDS, INC, A SUBSIDIARY OF CAPITOL INDUSTRIES, INC. U.S.A."

THE PERIMETER PRINT WAS NOT THE ONLY CHANGE TO TAKE PLACE IN 1968. THAT SUMMER, CAPITOL RETOOLED ITS 45 PRESSING MACHINES TO PRODUCE "NON-SLIP" DISCS. THE NEW SINGLES, WHICH MADE THEIR DEBUT ON AUGUST 1, HAD A RING OF 360 NOTCHES AROUND THE LABEL. THE PURPOSE OF THE NOTCHES WAS TO HAVE THE RECORD INTERLOCK TO OTHER RECORDS WHEN STACKED. BECAUSE THE NOTCHES WERE RAISED, THEY COULD ALSO GRIP THE SMOOTH SURFACE ON RECORDS THAT DID NOT HAVE THE SERRATIONS. THE LABELS FOR THE NEW DISCS WERE REDUCED FROM 3 5/8" TO 3 5/16" TO ACCOMMODATE THE NOTCHED RING.

This "SUBSIDIARY" label variation was made for ONLY approximately TEN months, from THE Fall of 1968 to Summer of 1969 - and is actually significantly rarer than the labels without the "subsidiary" verbiage. ALTHOUGH THE SUBSIDIARY SWIRLS ARE NOT FIRST ISSUES, THEY ARE MUCH RARER THAN THE FIRST ISSUES - AND ARE HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE.

MEGA-RARE PRESSING WITHOUT THE "NON-SLIP" NOTCHES

FOR YEARS THIS BEATLES "DOUBLE A-SIDE" CLASSIC WAS PREVIOUSLY UNDOCUMENTED AND ORIGINALLY BELIEVED NOT TO HAVE BEEN ISSUED IN THE ORANGE & YELLOW SWIRL 1968 "SUBSIDIARY" CATALOG. ONLY RECENTLY HAS IT BEEN DOCUMENTED IN THE PERRY COX 2007 PRICE GUIDE 6TH EDITION, AND IS ESTIMATED THAT LESS THAN FIVE HAVE NOW SURFACED.

THIS PARTICULAR EXAMPLE HAS AN ADDITIONAL FACTOR OF RARITY.  THE CAPITOL "SUBSIDIARY" SINGLES WERE MANUFACTURED WITH A RING OF 360 NOTCHES AROUND THE LABEL. THE PURPOSE OF THE "NON-SLIP"  NOTCHES WAS TO HAVE THE RECORD INTERLOCK TO OTHER RECORDS WHEN STACKED. THIS RECORD BEING OFFERED HERE HAD LEFT THE FACTORY WITHOUT THE "NON-SLIP" NOTCHES - BUT HAS THE STANDARD, SMOOTH SURFACE AROUND THE PERIMETER OF THE LABELS. TO OUR KNOWLEDGE, THIS IS THE FIRST TO HAVE EVER SURFACED FOR THIS TITLE.

FURTHERMORE, THESE WEST COAST LABELS ARE QUITE UNIQUE FOR THE "MICRO" FONTS USED HERE DIFFER ENTIRELY FROM THOSE USED FOR THE ORIGINAL STANDARD 1967 ISSUE, AND ALSO DIFFER FROM THE LABEL COPY USED FOR THE OTHER "SUBSIDIARY" RELEASES.

THE RECORD AND LABELS ARE IN GLORIOUS NEAR MINT CONDITION.
