Offered for sale is an original U.S. mono pressing of Hear the Beatles Tell All by the Beatles.
This is the original U.S. mono pressing and not one of the later reissues that are mislabeled as stereo.
About this copy: This copy of Hear the Beatles Tell All is a 1964 pressing on the Vee Jay label.
The cover is VG+, with wear at the top and bottom left hand corners. There are no splits, no writing, and no ring wear.
The original VJ inner sleeve is included; it’s VG+ with a small 1″ (3 cm) split at the bottom edge.
The disc is VG+ with a few light hairlines. The side one label has a number of scratches on it where someone removed a price sticker. There is also a bit of “haze” on the side one playing surface. This is from a chemical reaction with the paper inner sleeve.
Both sides play quite well with minimal noise.
This is the version of the album that has the “202 PRO” catalog number on both labels.
A nice playable copy of a Beatles LP that’s quite hard to find as an original pressing.
Background: Hear the Beatles Tell All is an interview LP that was originally released in 1964 on Vee Jay records. The album features disk jockeys Jim Steck and Dave Hull interviewing the Beatles, accompanied by crowd noises and percussion from Wrecking Crew drummer Hal Blaine.
The recording is actually quite sophisticated for its time and it was the only Beatles album to which Vee Jay retained the rights after Capitol Records took over their Beatles catalog in late 1964.
The original pressings were in mono only; in 1979, the company that then owned the rights to Vee Jay material reissued the LP with a “stereo” banner at the top.
