(Version 1 Stereo - AD Back) on Vee Jay Records !!!
Manufacturer: Vee Jay Records, USA, SR1062, 1964
Cover Condition: VG
Vinyl Condition: Good
Offered is truly one of the Holy Grails of vintage Beatles record collecting...
the STEREO AD BACK Introducing The Beatles album
issued by VJ Records in January 1964, just a month before The Beatles visited
America for the first time ever. The record ID number is SR-1062. Both the
jacket and the record pass all of the authenticity tests 100%: the jacket has
two 1/4" inner flaps on the inside seams; it has "PRINTED IN U.S.A." printed
vertically on the front cover, lower left corner; and the rare Vee Jay "AD BACK"
slick on the back cover. We grade the cover VG to VG+. The back cover has much
more overall wear than the front cover. The spine is not split nor are the other
2 sides. The corners have wear through. When we found this record years ago,
there was a piece of masking tape across the entire bottom seam, so we sent the
jacket to Chameleon Restoration in NYC to remove the tape and fix any seam split
underneath. Several hundred dollars later we received what you're viewing now:
Chameleon did a marvelous job as you can see for yourself on the lower seam.
Only the bottom seam was restored on this LP. The jacket lays nice
and flat. The seams are quite nice and the spine print is all there except for
the very top where SR1062 is worn away. The jacket includes the original VJ
inner sleeve too, but there is tape on all 3 sides of the VJ inner sleeve. The
vinyl we will grade conservatively Good+ to VG- but it plays much better than
that: the vinyl still has some gloss to it even though there are numerous scuffs
and scratches on the vinyl. It's very enjoyable to listen to this record, you
won't be disappointed with this record. Vee Jay pressed some of the best deep
groove records ever made, and this is one of them. The record is quite heavy too
as you would expect with a deep groove pressing from the early 1960s. The sound
is still quite brilliant, even though in the quiet passages, between songs,
there is a little noise. The stereo definition is really nice. We have listened
to the entire record and there are absolutely no skips and no loud pops either.
We would grade the vinyl VG to VG+ just by listening to it. I've heard NM-
condition records that sounded the same as this one. In the dead wax area on the
inner grooves is stamped "AudioMatrix" and also stamped "ARP" so this is
definitely the FIRST ISSUE of this rare album. The record ID numbers are visible
too in the dead wax but these are much harder to see unless you use a magnifying
glass, but they are all there. On side 1 on the label's border is a small name
written neatly in ink that is hard to see in the pictures; it measures less than
1", the name "Sprague" is located in the yellow colored section of the label's
border on side 1. This 1st issue has STEREO printed in large bold silver letters
above the oval Vee Jay logo on both sides. The labels have outer wear so I grade
them VG. Overall it's about a VG package, both record and jacket given the
various conditions of each piece. The record is definitely a keeper and worthy
of any serious Beatles record collection. So if you don't want to spend $5,000
for an example of this rare Stereo AD Back LP in VG+ condition, here's your
chance at getting a decent one at a reasonable price. Keep in mind that this gem
is one of the highest valued Beatles records in existence, booking at over
$12,000 in NM condition and $6,000 in VG condition. So in years to come, this
record will definitely increase in value. Finally, since the real value here is
in the cover, if you were to find a VG+ or better record someday, you could
easily double the value of your investment. We have provided several different
photos of the piece. Please note that shipping on this item will be $35
for any USA address and the record will be sent by USPS Express mail overnight
delivery with full insurance.
