VERY RARE!Issued by UNITED ARTISTSin JULY 1964.

GORGEOUS VINYL PLAY SURFACE.

Comes with original"AUDIODISCS"sleeve.

Exceptional!


EXTREMELY RARE. Only a limited number (probably less than 200) of these were ever pressed!

Since there were never any official records keptindicating how many of these were physically

distributed anddestroyed by theDisc Jockeysthey were sent to (ONLY in specific major markets),

no one iscertainhowmany have actuallysurvived worldwide in today'scollector'smarket. Most

importantly,what condition arethe surviving discs intoday?When these discswerebeinghandled

by DJs,it is quite evident today, that in 1964no one hadevergiven any thought tothepossibility

that onedaytheymight become highly soughtaftercollectibles.But onethingis certain. You'll be

foreverhardpressedto find another one ofthesewith such aCLEANSHINYVINYLPLAY

SURFACEor forthat matter,inANY CONDITION!


This is 50+ YEAR OLD PROMO 12" VINYL RECORDwas produced by UNITED ARTISTSwho alsoproduced the

film "A HARD DAY'S NIGHT". The UA catalog number is SP-2359 asstated above.The VINYL is inremarkably

beautiful shiny conditionretaining it's original luster.The LABELSare both NMas evidenced by photos posted.

TheRAREORIGINALSLEEVEfrom "AUDIODISCS"isalsoincluded, which itself is extremely difficult to locate

inthis dayand age and hardly everfoundwith these records now after a half century. Normally left trashed

ordiscardedby the DJsof thetime, this one is a BEAUTIFUL PRESERVED example of an extremely limited

PROMOTIONALRECORDwhichwaspressed in very limited quantities as stated hereinandhas remained

in wonderful condition.


PLAY TESTED: This vinyl record's play surfaces are beautifully preserved in their original luster; not perfect, but pretty close.

They have also beenPLAYTESTEDand both sidesplaywonderfully withundisturbed soundclarity even with avery slight vinyl

warp that is actually only noticeablewhen spinning on aturntable with play totally unaffected.It's always been our policy to be as fair

and honest as we can possibly beto anypotentialbuyer. The best policy is to always provide a complete description and also as many

detailed photos as possible!The good news isthat for those who feel the need, potential solutions alwaysexist.We had brought this to

the attention ofsomeone with experience in such matters and he had stated that this isa matter witha remedywhenhandled properly

ifso desired and that this particular condition, was quite common when it came to many of the promotional vinyls of the time due to

the specific typeofmaterials utilized. And since we are not experts in trying to alter the conditional of such items, we felt that due to it's

undisturbedplay,why tamper with it, or better put,"IF IT AIN'T BROKE,DON'TFIX IT". Here, our attitude is "ITAIN'TREALLY

BROKE".But we are not the buyer who'swilling to spend serious money to purchase such a unique item, so we certainlyunderstand

theneedfor a vinyl solution if a buyer requires one.But ifyou wish to purchase thisAS IS, and youfeel more comfortable bringing it

totheattentionofsomeoneyou may feel more at ease with,simplylet us knowwhenbuying itand we'll makeSPECIAL FINANCIAL

ALLOWANCES.Whatdoes thisreally mean in terms of DOLLARS& CENTSto abuyer? Whatever price this may ultimatelysellfor,

we're still quite flexible andwillallow any buyer, a NEGOTIABLEDISCOUNT.In any case,it isimportant to alwayskeep in mind,

that thisoverallpieceisstill a very beautiful example of a unique andlimited promotional item of it's time.So, don'tmissout!

This is trulyan important part ofBEATLES RECORDING HISTORY!


Matrix Numbers are: SP-2359 (Side 1) and SP-2360 (Side 2)


It'sIMPORTANT TO MENTION that during the 1960splay surfaces on theseVinyl PROMO

recordswere often quitehammered by most DiscJockeys,but not this one! VERY BEAUTIFUL!


Aside from the earlier commercially released and more familiar"A HARD DAY'S NIGHT"

Soundtrack LP, UNITED ARTISTS prepared these types of vinyl records afterwards, strictly

forthe sole purpose of promoting the 1964 film here in the USA. These PROMO discs arenow

considered to be extremely RARE and quite collectible for a number of reasons. First, theywere

PRESSED IN EXTREMELY LIMITED QUANTITIES and distributed ONLY to some selectedRADIO

STATIONSand MOVIE THEATERSin major markets. Second, due to the fact thatthese records

were only manufactured for the sole purpose of promoting the movie, DJs andTheater owners

routinely and unfortunately discarded most of these very scarce and unique pieces of recording

history,once themoviewas released, never realizing how collectible they may someday become.


Open-End interview records enabled DJs to give listeners the impression that they were actually

conducting"exclusive" interviews with THE BEATLES when in fact this was simply an illusion.

This was a process that with the use ofscripted statements and questions along withmoments of

silence, created the illusion that allowed the Radio personalities to make one think thatactual

personal interviews werebeing conducted then and there. This was a technique commonlyused

by allrecord companies of the day in the same manner. Here, UNITED ARTISTS prepared

thisunique package containing a SPECIAL HALF HOUR OPEN-ENDEDINTERVIEW.


SIDE 1 contains anOPEN-END INTERVIEW mixed withSONGS & COMMERCIALSpromoting

the movie. SIDE 2contains only an INTERVIEW WITH NOMUSICorCOMMERCIALS. The disc

was issued in an "AUDIODISCS"light brown innersleevew/RED PRINT(INCLUDED),placed in

a plain white unlabeled rigid jacket (INCLUDED).


What is the value of this record? You can throw out all price guides when it comes to rare items

likethis. These PROMOS areNEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ANYWHERE especially in as nice

acondition as this one is in and we have priced it accordingly!


A Tremendous find for any serious BEATLE collector!

EXTREMELY RARE!

theybought an itemsuch as this,they maystill feeltheneed for a"SECOND OPINION"; or"ADDITIONAL

AUTHENTICATION"by shipping it toothers. Since we're inthe business of"AUTHENTICATING"records,

what would be the purposefor this? The photosand description provide adequate information for anyone to

determineexactly whatit is they are buying. Sending to others will not change any of its characteristics.Also

in ouropinion,based upon our own previous experience, the more people whohandle it,re-packageditand

ship itall over the map, the more chancesthere arefor damage or evenbecoming lost.

own it.It is our belief that one whole day in thehands ofanyone with even some knowledge of what aFAKEmight

look like, is certainly enough time.
