    Beatles "Can't Buy Me Love"/ "You Can't Do That" 45 and Rare Picture Sleeve (Capitol 5150, 1964). Once Beatlemania launched, the singles came fast and furiously, so quickly in fact that Capitol didn't even bother to design a new picture sleeve for what turned out to be one of the group's biggest singles ever, "Can't Buy Me Love", which ruled the charts for five weeks in 1964, scant weeks following similar achievements by "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and "She Loves You". Most copies just didn't have a picture sleeve, but one East Coast plant simply rigged up its own picture sleeve by altering the existing sleeve designed for "I Want To Hold Your Hand". The total number of sleeves produced were much less than for the Beatles' first #1 hit, so the "Can't Buy Me Love" picture sleeve is far and away the rarest of Capitol's commercial picture sleeves for the group. And this one's a nice one! Condition: EX 7/ NM 8.
