Souvenir Of Their Visit To America, VJEP 1-903 (DJ).

Published February 15th, 2010

Souvenir Of Their Visit To America, Vee-Jay VJEP 1-903. March, 1964. Vee-Jay also issued a promotional copy of the record, which has blue brackets logos and the words “PROMOTIONAL COPY” in blue below the logos on the left and right sides of the center hole and black print above and below the center hole. There are two confirmed variations:

1. First pressing. Label has thin black print “Ask My Why” and other titles. Record pressed by Monarch Records.

2. Later pressing. After a few months it became apparent to Vee-Jay that the EP’s sales were minimal when compared to the sales of four singles released by the label in 1964. In hopes of stimulating sales, Vee-Jay began marketing the EP as a single in late June of 1964. As part of its marketing strategy, Vee-Jay issued new promotional copies of the record plugging Ask Me Why. Copy is similar to the first issue promotional copy. There are two variations. Lists “Side I” and “Side II” and has Ask Me Why in much larger and bolder print than the other titles. With the exception of the location of the “ARP” logo Side II. Record pressed by ARP.

And lists “Side 1” and “Side 2” and has “ASK ME WHY” in larger and bolder print than the other titles. This record was manufactured by Monarch Records.

The above described promotional copies were often issued without the special cardboard sleeves.
