Description

    The Beatles & Frank Ifield On Stage Rare "Portrait Cover" Stereo LP with Original Shrink Wrap (Vee Jay VJS 1085, 1964). Released on September 18, 1964, a period in which VeeJay was desperately trying to milk every possible dollar from their Beatles material by repackaging it in the weirdest and most creative ways. This one pairs eight songs (including his Number One hit "I Remember You") from the easy listening/ county star Frank Ifield with four Beatle songs: "Please Please Me," "From Me To You," "Ask Me Why," and "Thank You Girl." There were three label variations, this one has the VeeJay "brackets" logo. Originally released in February 1964 as Jolly What... with a different cover; that version is relatively common. With only 300 produced, this later portrait cover issue is very difficult to find especially this nice and with its original shrink wrap present. Original inner sleeve included. Lower right corner bumped with minor ink touchup. Condition: NM 8/ EX-NM 7.5. This is one of the best examples we have seen, most existing copies are in lesser condition. From the Stan Panenka Beatles Vinyl Collection.

    More Information:  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. In most cases he's never bought an album that wasn't at least Near Mint, bringing a "just-left-the-pressing-plant" quality to great deal of the items 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!
