    Beatles German White Label Promo-Only Sampler LP (Germany - Polydor, 1961). This rare white label promo is the first known commercially-produced record containing Beatles songs, and one of only a handful (less than 10) of known copies. This 16-track promotional only sampler was issued by Polydor in Germany in early October of 1961 to promote the label's upcoming singles, including the soon-to-be issued "My Bonnie"/ "The Saints", attributed to Tony Sheridan and the Beat Brothers. To put it in perspective, this record was pressed over two years before Beatlemania hit the US! For years collectors thought the first-ever commercial Beatles record was the single -- then this rarity was discovered! A truly historic artifact! Condition: NM 8 (record only - no cover is known to exist).
