Published February 4th, 2011

1. Black label with an outer rim colorband featuring an oval logo.

Warning: None of the dealers or collectors not confirm the existence of any stereo Version Two records with a full-size oval logo.

But Vee-Jay use of 45-size labels even occurred with some stereo records. This record has “INTRODUSING the BEATLES” and left justified titles and credits printed on a 45-size black label with an outer rim colorband and small oval logo. The word “STEREO” is at 3 o’clock. The words “Microgroove” and “Long Playing” are not on the label. The trail off area to the Side 1 has the hand etched initials “URJ”, the matrix number 63-3402-S and the job number 6313. The trail off area to the Side 2 has the hand etched initials “URJ”, the matrix number 63-3403-S and job number 6313X. Both sides have the machine stamped MR logo. This record was pressed by Monarch Records.

2. Black label backdrops featuring the outer rim colorband and brackets logo. The following typesetting variations of this label.

First record variation has centered titles and credits with “INTRODUCING THE BEATLES”, “Long Playing” and “Microgroove” on the label. It also has the “Coffin-King” typo. “STEREO” appears at 12 o’clock. Its trail off areas contain hand etched matrix numbers, “URJ” and the date 1-24-64 on both sides and matrix number S 63-3402-1 on Side I and S 63-3403-1 on Side II. The machine stamped Audio Matrix and ARP logos also appears on both sides. This record was manufactured by ARP.

Second record variation has left justified song titles and songwriter’s credits and with “INTRODUCING the BEATLES” in small print on the label. The words “Longplaying” and “Microgroove” do not appear on the label. “STEREO” at 3 o’clock in either: medium print with “Side” in upper and lower case; or small print with either: “Side” in upper and lower case; or “SIDE” in upper case. To add to the confusion, some records have “Side 1” in upper and lower case and “SIDE 2” in upper case while other have “SIDE 1” in upper caseand “Side 2” in upper and lower case. All vriations have the hand etched initials “URJ” on both sides and matrix number S 63-3402-S and job number 6313 on Side 1 and the matrix number S 63-3403-S and job number 6313X on Side 2. The MR logo on both sides. These records were pressed by Monarch Records.

Third record variation has left justified song titles and indented credits with “INTRODUCING the BEATLES” and “LONG PLAYING” on the label. The word “STEREO” appears on each side of the brackets logo. The trail off areas include the matrix numbers S 63-3402 on SIDE 1 and S 63-3403 on SIDE 2. Each side also includes the hand etched date 2-6-64, “URJ” and the letters “ARC” as well as the machine stamped Audio Matrix logo. This record was pressed by ARC.

3. All black label (without the outer rim colorband) with silver print.

This record variation has all black label with silver print and “VJ” in large block letters with “VEE JAY RECORDS” printed below. Is has left justified titles and credits with “INTRODUCING the BEATLES” and does not have the words “Long Playing” and “Microgroove” on the label. “STEREO” at 9 o’clock. There are two confirmed typesetting variations. With the word “STEREO” in thick print and “STEREO” in tall, thin print. The trail off areas are identical for both variations. These trail off areas have the hand ectched matrix number S 63-3402-STEREO and job number 6313 on SIDE 1 and matrix number S 63-3403-STEREO and job number 6313X on SIDE 2, “URJ” and MR logo apper on both sides. Although the MR logo is not scratched out, the characteristics of this records, particularly the deep circular indentation located 5/8″ inside the outer border of the label, are more similar to discs made by Monarch. But these variations were possibly pressed  by Columbia Records in Terre Haute, Indiana with stampers previously used by Monarch.
