    Description

    "Meet The Beatles" Record Club Promo Brochure (Capitol, 1964) Here's one of the rarest Beatle items offered in this sale, and something we have never seen until now -- a four-page mini-brochure made for the record club members and dealer promotion, urging them to order copies of the American LP debut from England's hot new hitmakers."You've read about them in Time, Newsweek, the New York Times... You see them on the Ed Sullivan and Jack Paar shows and on the Walter Cronkite and Huntley-Brinkley news broadcasts, now you can... Meet the Beatles!" Printed in light blue and black, this 5" x 8" booklet opens up to reveal mis-identified photos of the lads, with John and George's photos switched -- we suppose all long-haired young men looked alike to Capitol's art staff! Incredible! Even more astounding is the back page, which is completely devoted to an ad for the then-current Al Martino album, "Painted, Tainted Rose", Capitol's way to hedge their bets in case the Fab Four turned out to be a flop! Other than a very minor, quarter-inch separation of the pages along the bottom seam (which actually appears to be slightly mis-cut, rather than from wear and tear), the brochure is in Near Mint- condition.
