  DESCRIPTION

THIS RELEASE DID NOT HAVE FACTORY NUMBER ON BACK COVER. THE BLUE INNER SLEEVES (EARLY 1964 CAPITOL SLEEVE) ARE EASILY VISIBLE THROUGH BOTH MOUTH OPENINGS, SIGNIFYING TRUE FIRST PRESSING.

THIS BEAUTIFUL SEALED EXAMPLE IS A WEST COAST (LOS ANGELES) FACTORY PRESSING, DICTATED BY THE "CREAM" TONE COLORED WRAP-AROUND SLICK THAT IS EVIDENT ON THESE WEST COAST ISSUES.

TWO FACTORY SHRINK "BREATH HOLES" EVIDENT ON FRONT SHRINKWRAP. EXTREMELY TIGHT SEAL CORNER TO CORNER. NO RIPS, NO TEARS. THE MOUTH OPENINGS REMAINS TIGHTLY SEALED. ALL FOUR CORNERS ARE SHARP. THIS EXAMPLE OF THIS TITLE IS THE BEST WE HAVE EVER OFFERED. IT'S A TRUE GEM.

THE ORIGINAL 2" X 1" GIMBEL'S DEPARTMENT STORE $2.49 PRICE STICKER REMAINS ADHERED TO THE FRONT COVER SHRINK.

THE SPINE PRINT IS CENTERED, SHARP, CLEAR AND LAYS JUST A TOUCH ACROSS THE EDGE OF THE SPINE ON THE BACK.

STEREO COPIES OF BEATLES ALBUMS MANUFACTURED PRIOR TO 1966 ARE SIGNIFICANTLY RARER THAN THEIR MONO COUNTERPARTS. IT'S ESTIMATED THAT ONLY FIFTEEN PERCENT OF CAPITOL'S BEATLES ALBUMS MANUFACTURED PRIOR TO 1966 WERE STEREO.
