Annotation

This variation has oval Vee Jay logo, left justified song titles and songwriters’ credits with “INTRODUCING the BEATLES” is in medium print. The words “LONGPLAYING” and “MICROGROOVE” appear on the label. The typesetting on the labels has an amateurish appearance as “THE BEATLES” is not level, particularly noticeable on Side 1. Trail off areas have hand etched matrix numbers as well as the date 6-29-63 and the initials “RA” and “A”. The machine stamped Audio Matrix logo is also present. This variation was pressed by Southern Plastics.
