  SHE LOVES YOU B/W I'LL GET YOU
SWAN 4152
RELEASED: SEPTEMBER 1963

ULTRA-RARE 1963 VERY FIRST ISSUE
BRIGHT RED TITLES ON WHITE LABELS (SWAN 4152.01C, SPIZER)

(ACTUAL SCANS)

BECAUSE SHE LOVES YOU DID NOT SELL WELL UPON ITS INITIAL RELEASE, THE ORIGINAL RED PRINT ON WHITE LABEL PRESSINGS OF THE DISC FROM SEPTEMBER 1963 ARE VERY RARE AND HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE. WHILE SWAN 4152 WILL NEVER ATTAIN THE LEGENDARY STATUS OF THE VEE-JAY 498 SINGLE, DEALERS AND COLLECTORS ARE BEGINNING TO REALIZE THAT THE ORIGINAL 1963 WHITE LABEL PRESSINGS OF SHE LOVES YOU ARE EXTREMELY RARE. IN ADDITION, SOME 1964 PRESSINGS, SUCH AS THE WHITE LABEL WITH BLUE PRINT VARIATION AND THE ONE-SIDED I'LL GET YOU PROMOTIONAL 45, ARE ALSO VERY SCARCE. (BOTH ITEMS ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FROM FAB 4 COLLECTIBLES).

THIS MEGA-RARE SINGLE BEING OFFERED HERE WAS PRESSED BY RCA RECORDS IN ROCKAWAY, NEW JERSEY, AND WAS THE FIRST OF THE SWAN BEATLES SINGLES TO HAVE "DON'T DROP OUT" PRINTED ON THE UPPER LEFT SIDE OF THE LABEL. THIS WAS SWAN'S CONTRIBUTION TO THE NATIONAL CAMPAIGN ENCOURAGING HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO REMAIN IN SCHOOL AND GRADUATE.

THE 45S PRESSED BY RCA IN ROCKAWAY CAN BE INDENTIFIED BY THE BRIGHT RED PRINT, AND THE TALL THIN LETTERS USED FOR THE SONG TITLES AND THE GROUP'S NAME. ADDITIONALLY, THERE IS A HAND ETCHED "R" APPEARING IN THE TRAIL OFF AREAS. ALL INITIAL PRESSINGS OF THIS SINGLE WERE MANUFACTURED WITH METAL PARTS ORIGINATING FROM LACQUERS PREPARED BY RECO-ART IN PHILADELPHIA. THEREFORE, THIS 45 SINGLE DOES HAVE THE "A1" STAMPER AND "MASTERING RECO-ART PHILA" MACHINE STAMPED MARKINGS IN THE TRAIL OFF, DEFINING IT AS THE TRUE AND AUTHENTIC FIRST PRESSING.

THE CONDITION OF THIS ULTRA-RARITY RATES A SOLID NEAR MINT, WITH VERY BRIGHT, "WHITE" LABELS AND A TOUCH OF TYPICAL STACKING WEAR NOTICEABLE ON THE A-SIDE UPON THE RAISED AREA BENEATH THE LABEL. THE VINYL IS EQUALLY BEAUTIFUL, WITH A SHIMMERING GLOSS AND JUST A COUPLE OF SLEEVE "WHISPS".

FINDING THIS RARITY IN THIS CONDITION, IS QUITE AN ACHIEVEMENT, AND WOULD BE A VITAL ADDITION TO THE SERIOUS BEATLES RECORD COLLECTION.
