    The Beatles Introducing . . . Incredibly Rare Version One With DJ Promo Stamp On Back Cover With VJ Paper Sleeve (VJLP 1062). Finding a Version One edition of Introducing . . . the Beatles (as it has "Love Me Do" at the end of the first side and "P.S. I Love You" at the beginning of the second side) is one thing. Finding one like this is even more rare. Featuring a red-colored stamp on the back cover over the "side two" letters, it reads, "D.J. COPY / NOT FOR SALE" in bold.

    Known as the "designate promotional" version of the Vee-Jay release, this is known to be the only authentic example.
    Version One was only available to the U.S. public for a couple of weeks before it had to be pulled per a restraining order by Capitol. Version Two was quickly issued, with "Ask Me Why" and "Please Please Me" added as replacement tracks.

    The disc comes with an identical sticker on each side that reads, "Promotional / Copy." Disc is in VG-EX 6 condition. The labels are in Near Mint Minus condition. The sleeve is in VG-EX 6 condition.

    Included in this incredible lot is an original Vee-Jay paper sleeve featuring "Other Fine Albums of Significant Interest" on one side and "The Great Gospel Artists Are On" on the other. Paper sleeve is in Very Good condition with ring wear, creasing, and fold marks.

    We cannot stress enough the scarcity of this rare example.

    Comes with a detailed LOA from Beatles expert Perry Cox. COA from Heritage Auctions.
