cover that willtellyou all that you needto know withrespect to authenticity as long as you knowwhat tolookfor. If these jackets
weren't already considered rare enough, WEST COAST versions like this one are even rarer. The owner had obtained this album
as is from someone in the San Francisco area many years ago. (If you are looking for additional details, please feel free
to ask orrequest additional photos).
What is the difference between an EAST COAST and a WEST COAST version?(SEESECTIONS BELOW in"SOME
INTERESTING &IMPORTANT FACTS" in SECTION8 (Test #3) and SECTION 14).
ALSO OF NOTE: Some collectors have written in asking if this cover requires the presence of the phrase"Printed inUSA"
on the lowerleft side, however it doesnot. This phrase only appears on ALL "AD BACKS"and only some"BLANK BACKS".
There's neverbeenanyevidence suggesting thatthis phrase hasEVERappeared on"VERSION 1 COLUMN BACKS"since
Vee Jaywas forcedtoswitch printersin1963fromCOBURNtoIVY HILL, who never included this phrase.(SEE PHOTO)

(VERSION 1 STEREO discs were pressed for Vee Jay by only (2) companies. Theywere AMERICAN RECORD PRESSING
Co.(ARP) &MONARCH RECORD MFG Co.(MR).Anotherfirm,SOUTHERNPLASTICS Inc. (SP) is rumored to also have
been used,howeverthere is NOevidence that any STEREO pressings have EVER been discovered from them - only MONO).
As of 3-7-16, an authenticVARIATION of this album was posted on ebay. We were excited to see this because itvalidatedwhat
we've been saying all along, that the STEREOVERSION 1 "COLUMN BACK"actually does exist. But how manywere actually
made? No one really knows. Based upon industry experts, existing Vee Jaystatsand market estimates, indications arethat no
more than 300were everassembled and paired with an authenticSTEREOrecord.
It's hard to believe how many FAKES of this LPcontinue toappear onebay! Buying aFAKEis awasteof anyone's timeandhard
earned money.This is incrediblyfrustrating to buyers searchingforauthenticvariationsof this great album.Sellers whoofferonly
AUTHENTICitems are also veryannoyed that they are continuallyforcedtocompete in a market that remainsfull of FAKEmaterial.
Thisproblem is now finallybeingaddressed byebay! Soon it may be impossible to even list a FAKE!
TO THE UNSUSPECTING BUYER: BEWARE of FAKES! Before you buy any versionofthisgreat LP, be sureyouunderstand all
the differences between FAKESandREAL ones. We say this not to insult anyonebutsimply to state that it is a well known fact that
