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.

your hands and willNOTtravel elsewhere, riskingpotential damage. Once the24-HOUR PERIODends, you will
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.
