Offered for sale is an original still sealed U.S. mono pressing of The American Tour With Ed Rudy featuring interviews with the Beatles and including a copy of Teen Talk magazine.
There were two versions of the back cover; one showing Ed Rudy facing sideways, and one showing him facing the camera. This copy features the back cover that shows Ed Rudy facing sideways. This copy was acquired from someone who obtained it from the estate of Ed Rudy.
About this copy: This copy of The American Tour With Ed Rudy is an original 1964 U.S. pressing on the Radio Pulsebeat News label. The LP is mono; there was no stereo issue.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed. A copy of Teen Talk magazine is inside the wrap, with a card that describes the contents stapled to the cover.
The loose bag wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears, or holes.
A beautiful copy of an original piece of Beatlemania that is hard to find complete, as the magazine is nearly always missing.
Background: Journalist Ed Rudy accompanied (or followed; sources differ) the Beatles on their 1964 and 1965 tours of the United States and released several privately-pressed albums containing recordings of him interviewing the band.
The first of the three albums, The American Tour With Ed Rudy, sold fairly well. The later two albums sold poorly and are quite rare.
This album, The American Tour With Ed Rudy, also known as “Ed Rudy #2,” as the album says “Documentary II” on the cover, was released in 1964 and original pressings included a copy of Teen Talk magazine, which is almost always missing from used copies of the LP.
Side one features Rudy discussing the Beatles tour along with short interview segments. Side two features a phone interview with the band.
