Twist And Shout / There’s A Place, Tollie 9001.

Published February 15th, 2010

Twist And Shout / There’s A Place, Tollie 9001. March 2, 1964.  Twist And Shout was not issued on Vee-Jay, but rather was the debut release on Tollie, a Vee-Jay subsidiary label. It has been speculated that this was done to sneak out another Beatles single at a time when Vee-Jay was involved in litigation with Capitol Records over its rights to issue additional Beatles records. This is not the case, however. The decision to release the new Beatles single on Tollie was a marketing decision.

Record has black print on a yellow label with the word “Tollie” appearing in thin letters above the center hole. Its trail off areas have the hand etched initials “RA” indicating that the record was mastered at Universal in Chicago. The Audio Matrix logo is not visible, suggesting that either the logo wore away from extensive pressings or the metal parts were prepared elsewhere. The master number, with the last four digits repeated on the B side, is hand etched in the trail off area, along with the job numbers 51071X on the A side and 51071 on the B side. The machine stamped “MR” indicates that record was manufactured by Monarch Records. This record issued with brown paper sleeve.
