Songs, Pictures & Stories Of The Fabulous Beatles (aka Introducing The Beatles)

LP (Item 113944) Vee Jay, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold
An overstuffed album of early greatness – served up in a special edition 3/4 gatefold cover! The tunes are a mix of Lennon/McCartney originals and American soul and rock numbers that are reinterpreted wonderfully by the group – in ways that perfectly show why, unlike most of their contemporaries, The Beatles weren't just trying for slavish imitation of American authenticity – and instead were already taking off with new ideas inspired by the music! Titles include "Please Please Me", "Love Me Do", "Misery", "Anna", "I Saw Her Standing There", "Boys", "Baby It's You", "Do You Want To Know A Secret", "Twist & Shout", "A Taste Of Honey", and "Chains".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono black and silver oval logo "Introducing The Beatles" label pressing, in a 3/4 gatefold cover. Cover has some wear, flaking around the edges and partially split seams.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
