Most important: this is the GENUINE release, cover and record. The notable difference on these Vee Jay labels are the very thin fonts on album's title and album's songs. The back cover is the song titles back, with comma on 'Please, Please Me' listing, denoting a later pressing. Appear to be the intitials 'URT' hand etched in the dead wax also.
This is known as 'version 2' of the album, as Vee-Jay was legally halted by Capitol to use the songs 'Love Me Do' and 'P. S. I Love You'. These songs were replaced by 'Please Please Me' and 'Ask Me Why'.
