Notes

The debut album by The Beatles. Released under the name "Introducing The Beatles" in the United States with a slightly altered tracklist.

***************************************
First US LP Release: January 10, 1964

- First releases easily recognizable by the (later withdrawn) advertisement for other "Vee Jay" records on back-cover:

- The Beatles - Introducing The Beatles and The Beatles - Introducing The Beatles (Mono Versions)

- The Beatles - Introducing... The Beatles and The Beatles - Introducing The Beatles (Stereo Versions)

For the US releases, here's a guide to distinguish genuine releases from counterfeits:

(The US variations submitted so far can be found here)

Deadsure Method:
☞ If title and artist are separated on the label by the spindle hole, it's a counterfeit.
☞ If it is stereo and has ''Love Me Do'' on the back cover, it's most likely a counterfeit. (See additional "HONEY" test below.)
☞ If ''stereo'' appears only on the cover and not on the label, it's a counterfeit.
☞ If the record claims to be in stereo, but plays mono, it's a counterfeit.
☞ If the label is all black/silver and has a large brackets logo, it's a counterfeit.

☞ The runout etching on almost all genuine copies should contain at least one of the following:
''Audio Matrix''
''MR'' in a circle
''ARP'' in italics

***************************************

Easy Method By Cover:
☞ If George casts no shadow, it's a counterfeit.
☞ If the background contains no gradient and the colors seem off, it's a counterfeit.
☞ If the cover has a brown border, it's a counterfeit.
☞ If the front cover does not wrap around completely underneath the back cover slick, it's a counterfeit.
☞ If the back cover print is blurry in whatever way, it's a counterfeit.
☞ If printer marks (colored dots) are visible on the top of the back cover, it's a counterfeit.
☞ If the ''H'' and/or "E" of ''Honey'' in "A TASTE OF HONEY" on the back cover shows a printing deficit, it's a counterfeit.

*******************************************************

Easy Method By Label:
☞ If title and artist are separated on the label by the spindle hole, it's a counterfeit.
☞ If the label has a flat textured rainbow/colorband design, it's a counterfeit.
☞ If the dead wax after the last track is wider than an inch, it's a counterfeit
☞ If the label is all black and on glossy paper, it's a counterfeit.
☞ Any significant loss of color in the rainbow on the label (especially green) indicates a counterfeit.

There are 37 variations of the genuine pressing (including both mono and stereo) known.

First US CD release: Feb. 26, 1987
