Love Me Do / P.S. I Love You, Tollie 9008 (DJ).

Published February 15th, 2010

Love Me Do / P.S. I Love You, Tollie 9008. April 27, 1964. The Beatles first British single  issued on Parlophone 45-R 4949 on October 5, 1962. Vee-Jay did not have a copy of the master of the Ringo on drums version of Love Me Do, so it issued Tollie 9008 with the Ron Richards – produced  recording with Ringo on tambourine that appeared on version one of its Introducing The Beatles. Although there are no confirmed promotional copies of the first Beatles single on Tollie, there are two distinct promotional copy label variations:

1. Label has thin block letters “TOLLIE” logo. It has all black print on a white label and the words “Promotional Copy” and “Not For Sale”. The trail off areas have the “MR” symbol, indicating that this record was pressed by Monarch Records.

2. Label has letters “Tollie” logo in box. It has black print on a white label with the words “Disc Jockey Advance Sample” and “NOT FOR SALE”. The trail off areas contain barely visible hand etched initials “RA” and master numbers, along with barely legible Audio Matrix and “ARP” logos. This promotional record was pressed by ARP.
