Extremely RARE early Beatles original art department

I saw the real one this summer at the Newseum in Washington DC.
Wow, thanks for sharing the pictures! Such an incredible piece of history.
Original ''BEATLES VI'' Cover Slick Proofs
Original 1965 front and back cover proof slicks for the Beatles classic LP,
''BEATLES VI'' - Stereo version. These original cover slicks were from the
Capitol Records art department. Director at the time was Ray Polley, these
early proof prints of originalcovers are used in the business to check the
integrity of the colors, print, spelling, etc. before approving the final and
sending OK for full production.
The size of the front slick is 14'' x 14 1/3''. Size of the back slick is 13'' x 13''.
Front slick includes the the printing alignment marks, back slick has the
cover spine print included. Note the date stamps of "MAY 12, 1965" on the
front slick, and "MAY 14, 1965" on the back slick. Mr. Polley's name is also
stamped on both slicks. He has also signed the back slick, and wrote "1st Proof"
on the front slick. Both cover slicks have the original un-torn holes at the
top where they were inserted into a Capitol art binder for reference.
Also note the addition of the title sheet stapled to the bottom slick, and the
Also note absolute first proof with "See label for correct playing order" print.
Amazing NM condition, no rust whatsoever on the original staples on the back.
One of the most cherished items in the collection .. very seldom seen, or offered for sale.
Here's a Mono 1965 PROMO stamped sw copy of "BEATLES VI"
Easily one of the great Beatles album covers...
Gibson John Lennon "Peace" Guitar
For years Beatles fans had wondered just what was in the Fab Four's hands ?
What a great photo LP cover it was following the moody, bored looking umbrella
and leaves cover ... Now we know.
The Beatles ~ " "Yesterday"... and Today "
U.S Capitol Records sealed 8-track tape.
In 1968, Capitol released the 'white shell' tape of Y & T,
in 1970 they released the 'black shell' sealed copy you see here.
For some reason they chose to use the rare half purple backed
cover, this also featured the hit song "Yesterday" in parentheses
and used bright yellow print.
I've always thought this should have been the immediate choice
after caving on the butcher cover...
Here is a photo of a super rare, different printers proof...
Not in my collection, unfortunately.
This clearly would have been a great cover.
Printers proof and alternate "Yesterday And Today" LP slick cover.
This is one of only two printers proofs known without any lettering.
This was signed by Robert Whitaker, and resides in someones collection.
Kicking myself... I remember when this was still available about 20 years ago.
The earliest clue for you all...
April fools! - Opps, I mean Happy New Year To All!!
PGH. STEELERS VICTORY - YES WE CAN!!
GO JU JU GO!!
Bob Dylan - "Come All Of You Ramblers"
Extremely rare handwritten unpublished song lyrics.
From NYC 1961 .. unfinished lyrics written in pencil in a notepad.
A common theme, another rambling song... written sometime after
his arrival in NY. About nine songs, and partial songs from a 5" x 8"
Bob Dylan in his first NYC apartment. c., 1961.
Very early 1961 NYC Dylan photos by Ted Russell.
Bob Dylan ~ "Come All Of You Ramblers" (1961)
"Come all of you ramblers of the wide open rode
I'll tell you a story of a boy I once knowed
He was a hitchhiker and he rambled alone
He worked in the fields for a few dollars a day"
c., 1961 .. 5" x 8" NM page from a small note pad.
Just a short paragraph of unfinished lyrics from the master...
Had these twelve years now, So blessed to have them in the
collection. When I recall what a near full page song went
for back then, and what handwritten Dylan lyrics now go for
I am thankful for this small paragraph. Clearly this is the top
of all the Dylan stuff along with his personal acetates.
Congrats to... Sir RINGO!!
...arriving back in L.A. after the Knighting.
Sir Ringo's new photo he just posted on his web site... this guy is having a blast!
