DescriptionIntroducing The Beatles Version One "Blank Back/Paste-over" Mono LP (Vee-Jay LP1062, 1964). Contains "Love Me Do" and "P.S. I Love You". Vee-Jay, a company in disarray, rushed the release of the Beatle material they had in their vaults once Capitol began their promotional campaign. They had several thousand front covers printed but no back cover design. Their first issue had an ad for other artists on the back (known as the "Ad Back"). They quickly ran out of those and, in desperation, released a group without any printing at all on the back such as this present example (known as the "Blank Back"). Later, they managed to design a back unique to the album (known as the "Column Back" or "Title Back"). All three of these are available in this auction (see previous and following lots). If you need Blank Back to complete your collection, you'll not likely find a nicer copy. This Blank Back is incredibly rare, as it's a "Paste Over" cover. When looking at the back cover, one can see the stereophonic banner beneath. Condition: GM-MT 10/ GM-MT 10. From the Stan Panenka Beatles Vinyl Collection.
Possessing a Beatles record collection so astounding we've never seen its equal, Stan Panenka is a name known by virtually every serious Beatles collector. Though his first Beatles record was Hey Jude, bought in 1970, it wasn't until 1990 with his purchase of a copy of the Decca single "My Bonnie" that Stan began seriously collecting high-end American Beatles vinyl. Since then, his collection has grown to colossal proportions, in terms of both quantity and quality, making it quite possibly the greatest collection of United States-pressed Beatles records ever known. A large part of what makes this collection so important are his condition standards, which are stringent even among high-end dealers. He's never bought an album that wasn't at least Near Mint, bringing a "just-left-the-pressing-plant" quality to nearly every item in this incredible accumulation. As one of the preeminent experts in American Beatles records, Stan has written well-received price guides on Beatles vinyl, and is a walking treasure trove of information on the subject!
Heritage is ecstatic to bring you this, the first taste of the absolute finest Beatles record collection ever viewed by our specialists, with more to come in November's auction! Here is your chance to own pieces of this historic collection!
