Offered for sale is a scarce stereo pressing of the 1964 documentary 2 LP set, The Beatles Story issued by Capitol Records.

About this copy: The copy offered for sale is in beautiful condition and is a much rarer stereo copy.  The records are M-, with no marks of any kind on either the vinyl or the label.  The cover is VG++, with the faintest traces of wear on the bottom of the front of the cover.  There are no splits or tears.

The discs are Los Angeles pressings, with the common 1-4, 2-3 labels, as the record was designed to be played in sequence on record changers.  This is an early pressing without the “subsidiary…” text that appeared on later labels.

Matrix numbers are:

SIDE 1: STBO-1-2222-A-3
SIDE 2: STBO-2-2222-A-3
SIDE 3: STBO-3-2222-A-3
SIDE 4: STBO-4-2222-A-3

One disc has a plain white inner sleeve; the other has a custom white Capitol sleeve with the word “Capitol” around the perimeter.

Background: At the height of Beatlemania, record companies couldn’t get enough Beatles product out on the shelves to satisfy consumers.  When Vee Jay records issued the interview-only album Hear the Beatles Tell All, Capitol issued their own documentary album as a two-record set, entitled The Beatles Story.  This album featured interviews, press conference excerpts, narration about the history of the band, and brief snippets of some of their songs.
