THE BEATLES (Compiled by our expert staff). What is a FAKE & what is a REAL copy? First & foremost, real copies of any version of this. On the record label. Xceptions have been found rarely, however if you do see one, you need to look at other characteristics. The color “GREEN” in the circle of colors around the black “RAINBOW”. This is only 1 example of. Characteristics that identify any. AUTHENTIC version of this record. Keep in mind; there were. Re- issues made by Vee Jay. Therefore wherever you see the word. Be certain that it is a. Includes: “AD BACKS”, “BLANK BACKS” & “COLUMN BACKS / TITLES ON BACK” versions. All confirmed “AD BACK”. “PRINTED IN USA” on the front cover. In lower left hand corner. Also contrary to popular belief, and although songs present were originally. NO COPY OF THIS LP WAS. EVER RELEASED IN 1 963. I t’s a known fact that. “INTRODUCING THE BEATLES” was officially released by Vee. 1st VERSION 1 COVER. Jacket is really what makes. 2nd VERSION 1 COVER. For this LP was known as. BACK featuring a 100%. Outer jacket with a semi-gloss all white paper slick pasted there. Some covers (MC2A) do have “PRINTED IN USA” on the. Front like the “AD BACK” while others (MC2B) do not. Once again it is. The cover that makes the. Overall piece much more. 3rd VERSION 1 COVER. Titles on the back in (2) columns. Came with either the “Oval” logo label or. There have been millions. Are clearly counterfeit , and on. LABELS The 1ST label for VERSION 1. Black Rainbow label with the “Oval” logo. I LOVE YOU” & “LOVE ME DO” replaced later on VERSION 2 pressings with “PLEASE, PLEASE ME. And “ASK ME WHY”. The VERSION 2 was not released until early February 1964. There are (3) font variations with. “Oval” labels for this version. The MR1A states words “LONG PLAYING” and “MICROGROOVE” in upper & lower case. MR1B doesn’t mention words “LONG PLAYING” or “MICROGROOVE” , and the MR1C has these words but only in. (A few of VERSION 1s have been found with the “BRACKETS” [VJ] logo on the label). O fficial versions must have all words “INTRODUCING THE BEATLES” and THE. It is always be a FAKE. Featured song titles “PLEASE, PLEASE ME”. And “ASK ME WHY” replacing P. I LOVE YOU” and “LOVE ME DO found only on VERSION 1 copies. Was released in early FEBRUARY 1964. The labels varied with either the Black. “Oval” logo, or the. SILVER “VJ” logo, or a Black Background with SILVER “Oval” logo. Or SILVER “VJ” in Block Style print, or Black. With SILVER “BRACKETS” logo [VJ] very. In rare cases, some VERSION 2 records can also be found with a 45 rpm label on them as well. FAKES that feature Medium Sized. SILVER BRACKETS [VJ] LOGO printed on an all. Black label (Real ones have the much smaller logo). All VERSION 2 covers are “Column Back / Titles on Back”. Copies of any STEREO VERSION 2 disc with a regular sized Rainbow label and the “Oval” logo are known to exist. Back in 1964 at Vee Jay , anything would have been possible. SOME IMPORTANT TESTS FOR AUTHENTICITY. TEST #1 The most obvious visual authenticity test is the “Shadow” test. It had been thought originally that if George’ s. “Shadow” appeared on the right side of the front of the LP cover, this was a definitive sign of authenticity. Discovered that some elaborate FAKES also had this feature, so although the shadow must be there, its appearance alone. Does not define the LP as being authentic. TEST #2 The 100% and most conclusive test is the “HONEY” test. Of the outer jacket and the. Song title “A TASTE OF HONEY”. On ALL FAKES , in the letters “H” and “E” , the top left corners of these letters are not. Solidly printed with ink missing there. This is THE most d efinitive test recognizing authenticity. The back panel were poor photo copies of original VERSION 1 COLUMN BACKS , but because of their poor quality, they. Were subject to many subtle inconsistencies which can be spotted by the trained eye, and of course the “HONEY” test. Illustrates one of these errors. Also, with reference to the back of the outer jacket, there are other “ink” tests however most. Have never been confirmed to be 100% CONCLUSIVE and NO FAKE HAS EVER PASSED THIS TEST. TEST #3 A “FLAP TEST ” requires the inspection of the inside of a jacket’s opening. In publications dedicated to pointing. Out differences between authentic & fake records and covers, for years it has always been assumed that any cover found with. NO FLAPS , had to be FAKE. But in the 1990s some authentic covers on WEST COAST releases were discovered to have. NO FLAPS at all. Collectors had always assumed that all legitimate covers had to have 1/4 flaps at the inner top & bottom. But that thinking has obviously now gone out the window. This changes conventional thinking specifically on any VERSION. B ut it’s important to point out that if and when a cover is found with NO FLAPS , it must still pass all other tests, most. Importantly the 100% CONCLUSIVE “HONEY” TEST. Why did these FLAP discrepancies exist? R emember that Vee Jay. Had hired more than one firm with respect to the make-up and printing of these jackets i. Coburn & Ivy Hill. T here would have to have been subtle differences in how both of these vendors independently produced a finished product. What we’ve stated here was always suspected. R ealists have always surmised that there could never have been only one or. Two legitimate covers produced as a sample of any production run with NO FLAPS. But without supporting documentation. From Vee Jay , no one really has any idea how many of either were actually manufactured. What we do know is that around. 79,000 MONOS and ONLY 2,202 STEREO VERSION 1 LPs were ever produced, which included all of the AD BACKS. BLANK BACKS & COLUMN BACKS (or “Titles On Back “). When you consider the way that Vee Jay was being run in. 1964 nothing would be surprising. W ith legal issues hanging over their heads in 1964 confirmed by eye witnesses who had. Worked at Vee Jay , there had always been a sense of urgency to move any and all products out the door as fast as possible. Regardless of appearances and characteristics. VERSION 1 covers were assembled some time in late December 1963 and. Also early January 1964. But like everything else that went on, just imagine what the quality control must have been like in. Actually there were times when people wondered if any authentic COLUMN BACK jackets existed at all. But obviously they do. Remember, the “HONEY” test tells all and NO FAKE has ever passed this test. In 1964 there were. No rules at all at Vee Jay. TEST #4 Read the “Trail Off Area”. This area of the disc on most if not all FAKES is always wider than legitimate copies. On all GENUINE copies, this area varies between 3/4 & 7/8 but on FAKES it is often anywhere from 1 to 1 1/4. Not all legitimate albums normally had raised relief machine stamped logos in the “Trail Off” areas. Are very hard to copy or duplicate , FAKES often have no markings or only hand scratched ones. The most common machine. Stamps are from AUDIO MATRIX (AR) or the ARP logo. Another trait of all FAKES is that they’re pressed on much thinner vinyl. Always c heck for thickness by comparing. An LP that in doubt to a known legitimate copy and you’ll see the difference. On the back of the jacket, the “B” in “BEATLES” at the top right in FAKES has a noticeable ink irregularity in the. Lower left inner section of the letter. In the REAL covers, the “B” is printed clearly with no flaws. Check this feature against. TEST #7 – On the back of the jacket, to the left of “MISERY” , all the FAKES have a very noticeable ink irregularity in the. Some refer to this as an INK BUMP. It is very easily spotted. TEST #8 – If the label’s color band has NO color GREEN in its lower to middle left side, record is FAKE. TEST #9 – Matrix Numbers are 63-3402 & 63-3403 and job numbers are 5702 and 5689 preceded by a small triangle. Pressing IDs / Stampings are either AUDIO MATRIX, ARP, MR. Hand etchings are 6-29-63 , RA or A. All others or lack there. TEST #10 – O. Of a gloss to the paper stock used. On back glossiness may. Appears to be a FLAT WHITE STOCK. It’s a FAKE. (SEE SECTION 14 BELOW FOR FURTHER DESCRIPTION OF “FLAP” TEST EXCEPTIONS). It is important to note, THE. Most “FAKED” LP was the STEREO. VERSION 1 “Column Back” album. Song titles on the outer jacket and record label: P. I LOVE YOU” and “LOVE ME DO. However when you play a FAKE. These songs are normally NOT on the disc. Instead you will probably hear. ” PLEASE, PLEASE ME” and “ASK ME WHY”. There are exceptions that have turned up playing P. I LOVE YOU” & “LOVE ME DO , but in most cases, these usually turn. Out to be FAKES. Also note that although outer jacket illustrates “STEREOPHONIC” at the top of the Front cover in GRAY. On a WHITE background, you w on’t EVER find the word “STEREO” anywhere on the record label and the recording is in. Contrary to popular belief there were NEVER any “REISSUES” of VERSION 1 or VERSION 2 LPs. And if you’ve seen. Any version of this LP with a stock photo on the front with DARK BROWN border, or the cover has a YELLOW haze to it, it is. K eep in mind that Vee Jay NEVER sealed these albums so if you have one that is sealed, there is good chance that. It is a FAKE! Recently it has come to our attention that some sellers feel they know all there is to know about this LP by posting bogus. For example, some state that unless the word “MICROGROOVE” appears on the label, the disc is a FAKE. There are certain variations that do NOT have either words “LONG PLAYING” or “MICROGROOVE” on the label, and yet. They are all legit pressings. Also there are some who have stated that if you see the word “STEREO” , it is not a legit pressing. We have NEVER seen the word “STEREO” on any fake label – ever; but if it DOES appear on the label, it’ is to. Be considered a uthentic. And also there are some who have actually stated that any STEREO OUTER JACKET that offers the. Song titles “LOVE ME DO” and P. LOVE YOU is a FAKE! WHERE ARE THESE PEOPLE GETTING ALL OF THEIR. Although rarely seen, all of the VERSION 1 STEREO COLUMN BACKS feature the songs “LOVE ME DO”. I LOVE YOU and since there were ONLY 2,202 COPIES EVER PRESSED , when found it would be worth a small. Fortune in any acceptable condition. Jackets with RED , WHITE & BLUE DOTS located under the top back paper overlap are normally FAKES. Printing process and they are. VISIBLE WITHOUT THE NEED TO SEPARATE THE. The paper is NEVER recommended, since. It does seriously devalue the jacket once. Then the COVER is AUTHENTIC , AS LONG AS ALL. OTHER TESTS ARE PASSED. And usually a FAKE cover will be accompanied by a FAKE disc. If the record has a label with a R A I N B O W color band without high resolution or gradual color change, it’s FAKE. Labels are plain BLACK with SILVER lettering with either a small. Brackets label or SILVER OVAL label. Color Band and are the exceptions. Color Bands MUST INCLUDE the color “GREEN” or the record is a FAKE. (RE: OUTER JACKET “FLAPS”) It’s been disclosed by even the most knowledgeable experts that some WEST COAST. COVERS have been found to have NO FLAPS , yet they pass. ALL THE OTHER LEGITIMACY TESTS which. Therefore where there are NO FLAPS present at all, the. MUST STILL PASS ALL OTHER TESTS f or legitimacy in order to be. Also, these come with. Disc inside, which is yet another way to assist in determining. Vee Jay in 1964 was known to have. Thrown caution to the wind when it came to any resemblance of quality control. One reason was the fact that they had many. Legal battles to overcome. B ased upon that fact alone, the company decided to rush the construction of all jackets using any. In doing so, any STEREO disc might have been. Paired with any VERSION 1 cover. Knowing how Vee Jay as a company generally operated, anything would have been. However, passing the “HONEY” test is still THE MOST IMPORTANT validation test. PASSED THIS TEST – EVER! Always keep that in mind when examining the results of any other tests. And one final word about “FLAPS”. It is a known fact that covers with “NO FLAPS” were discovered as originating on the. In fact a well know collector, presently has in his possession a “MONO” cover, and another has 2 STEREO. Obviously these are small numbers, but we point out that if “ONE” or “TWO” exist, using common sense there. Would only have been more, especially since these pass all the known authenticity tests including the 100% CONCLUSIVE. As screwed up as Vee Jay was at that time, they would never have had any kind of production runs in the. Even for them it wouldn’t have made sense. We have had people write in and ask WHY DO PAUL’S HANDS NOT APPEAR ON THE FRONT COVER? This comment mainly applies to the STEREO covers where his hands NEVER. Appear on any version of this LP. His hands only appear on MONOS and on STEREOS that DON’T have “STEREOPHONIC”. Across the top of the front cover in. On a WHITE BACKGROUND. Were also housed in MONO. Covers with applied “STEREO” or “STEREOPHONIC” stickers. Only in these cases would you ever see “PAUL’S HANDS”. These stickers were WHITE with BLACK ink. We only hope that this sets the record straight on these very important but often misunderstood points. If anyone has any.

Are always special circumstances where items can qualify for a return, however one of the reasons that’s NOT. Where does our knowledge about “VEE JAY” RECORDS originate? Although there have been several very. And well researched publications about the history of the “BEATLES” , t heir recordings, and the companies who had. Opportunity to have had an. Association with them, most. If not all based their research solely upon. Had a relative who was. Their friendship goes back to their days. Since he had p. Experience at that time in. Knowledge of everything that went on there. Experiences with respect to. Valuable since they originated from his personal experience. Production & Vendor issues. Knowledge and expertise that. Was personally involved with on a daily basis during the. Knowledge plus his personal possessions and documents retained from his years there, have been and. Always will remain priceless to us. He had always stated that 1964 was very stressful for everyone there. Remained friends with the Brackens , it was no longer a place he felt he could continue to work. Opportunity to pass on. What we consider to be. Recording company of such historical significance. ALL ITEMS ARE PROFESSIONALLY PACKAGED!
