ULTRA-RARE RCA RECORDS, ROCKAWAY PRESSING  -
“TALL THIN” PRINT WITH TRANSLATION BENEATH SONG TITLE.

THE GERMAN-LYRIC RECORDING OF "SIE LIEBT DICH" WAS RECORDED BY THE BEATLES ON JANUARY 29, 1964 AND WAS ISSUED IN GERMANY ON THE ODEON LABEL IN MID MARCH 1964.

ON OR ABOUT MAY 21, 1964, SWAN RELEASED A SINGLE PAIRING "SIE LIEBT DICH" (SHE LOVES YOU) WITH THE SAME MASTER RECORDING OF I'LL GET YOU THAT SERVED AS THE B-SIDE TO SHE LOVES YOU. THE RECORD LISTS THE GROUP AS "DIE BEATLES" ON ITS A-SIDE LABEL.

SWAN WAS HOPING THAT THE NOVELTY OF HEARING THE BEATLES SING IN GERMAN WOULD BE ENOUGH TO OBTAIN RADIO AIR PLAY AND SALES. IT WASN'T, FOR IT DIPPED TO NUMBER 97 BEFORE DISAPPEARING FROM THE BILLBOARD CHARTS. FURTHERMORE, SWAN HAD THE RIGHTS TO THE SPECIFIC MASTER RECORDINGS, BUT NOT THE SONGS THEMSELVES AND WERE SUED BY CAPITOL RECORDS. SWAN SETTLED THE LAWSUIT, AND THE SETTLEMENT KILLED ANY CHANCE OF "SIE LIEBT DICH" BECOMING A HIT IN THE U.S. THIS EXPLAINS THE RECORD'S RELATIVE SCARCITY.

THIS RCA RECORDS, ROCKAWAY, NEW JERSEY  PRESSING IS IN RED PRINT, AND HAS THE TALL THIN FONT WITH THE GERMAN TITLE ON ONE LINE AND (SHE LOVES YOU) IN MICRO PRINT BELOW. THIS VARIATION RARELY SURFACES, WITH THIS VINYL IN SHIMMERING NEAR MINT CONDITION, AND CLEAN NEAR MINT MINUS LABELS DISPLAYING VERY LITTLE WEAR.

CONDITION: NM
ITEM#: S717
PRICE: $800
