Description

Offered for sale is a copy of the awkwardly-titled Chicago Beatles Souvenir Record picture disc LP, available only at the 4th Annual Beatles Convention held in Chicago, Illinois on August 8-9, 1980.

This LP contains live performances from the Beatles’ 1965 concert at Shea Stadium in New York and features a photo of the Yesterday and Today “Butcher Cover” on side one of the disc.

About this copy: This copy of Chicago Beatles Souvenir Record is an original 1980 pressing.  Production information is unknown; there is no record company information on the disc and the cover is a generic die-cut black cover with no printing.

The cover is VG+, with slight wear at the edges and corners.  The cover retains the original shrink wrap.

The disc is VG++ and close to M-, with just a few faint scuffs from being removed from the inner sleeve.  It doesn’t appear to have been played more than a couple of times.

A nice copy of a rare Beatles picture disc and the first copy we’ve ever had for sale.

Background: Chicago Beatles Souvenir Record was one of the earliest unauthorized Beatles picture discs, being issued as a souvenir of the 4th Annual Beatles Convention held in Chicago, Illinois on August 8-9, 1980.

We do not know if this item was a giveaway item or if it was sold as a souvenir.  We do know that they didn’t press very many of them and that they rarely turn up for sale.
