Offered for sale is a still sealed 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.

As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.

The wrap is fully intact, with no rips, tears, or holes.  A couple of the corners are slightly “pushed.”

A nice copy of a rare Beatles picture disc and only the second 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.
