Beatles EP WHITE LABEL PROMO: "ASK ME WHY / ANNA / MISERY / A TASTE OF HONEY" released as Vee Jay catalog number VJEP I903 (DJ1) in March 1964. GORGEOUS and EXTREMELY RARE!

Need time to pay? Time payment options are available!

It should be noted that the trail off areas on this record have the identical markings of the FIRST PRESSING of the stock copy referred by Vee Jay as VJEP I903 (01B) and pressed by MONARCH RECORDS from the very same stampers. Most of the time this version was issued without any special sleeve. Very beautiful clean label and vinyl surfaces on both sides. Only very minor surface marks not really that apparent to the naked eye (visible only when seen in certain light and obviously nothing to be concerned about).

NO SLEEVE (which alone itself is worth thousands of dollars. This would be the "ASK ME WHY" PROMOTIONAL Vee Jay sleeve printed on one side only and in BLACK & WHITE with the back side blank. The record entry is unusual from the bottom position. We may currently have one of these up for auction at the time of this listing (VISIT OUR STORE FOR MORE INFORMATION). If anyone is interested, please inquire. If not listed, we will do so upon request. It is one of around a half dozen known to exist in the world. It is considered to be the RAREST SLEEVE IN THE BEATLES CATALOG). 

GORGEOUS piece of vinyl (See Photos) in Beautiful Condition. One of the finest we've seen in years (NOTE: Usually these are found to be "hammered" and marked up by Disc Jockeys). CONDITION is always very important, and when assigning TRUE VALUE to rare items like this, one must give special attention and consideration to RARITY and SCARCITY! Only the right PRICE GUIDES will provide accurate values for records like this. That is why we use only the latest guides that focus specifically on BEATLE recordings. In this case, we use the most current guide published by Stanley Panenkafor accurate descriptions and realistic values. All other guides are at least 7 to 8 years old + and do not really reflect current market values regardless of who the publisher is or what his or her claims of expertise might be.  

(We do NOT use guides such as GOLDMINE due to the fact that they are too general and grossly undervalue RARE HIGH END items like this especially when it comes to major artists and/or super groups such as "THE BEATLES". You just don't see items like this very often especially in this condition in today's collector's market, but when you do, you need to grab it while its still available).

Most people do not realize that the A-Side is actually "Misery"  and "A Taste of Honey". "Ask Me Why"  is for some reason on the B-Side and is printed on 2 lines with "Anna"  below it. A great example of this RARE label variation. Play times are NOT listed on the label. Great Beatles collectible! Very RARE and Quite SCARCE in today's market and especially in this outstanding condition!

INSURANCE:  We do not typically provide insurance to any item due to the fact that this can amount to significant 
added cost. However, this added service is available to any buyer requesting it prior to invoicing. If items are not 
insured and are received damaged, immediately make the shipper aware of the damage. Once the item is packaged, 
inspected by, and leaves the seller, one can only hope that it is handled with care which is why insurance is always 
a good idea (if affordable and available in your country).
Grading "VINYL" records can at times be a bit difficult and is not an exact science since it is based upon someone's 
opinion. Since opinions can differ, we want all buyers to know that whenever a purchase is made and the item is 
received, if you feel that our listed grading (by seasoned professionals) differs from what you feel it should be, 
ALWAYS contact us FIRST before filing a claim with Ebay. All items are inspected prior to packaging to insure that 
our description is accurate. However, we're not perfect and once in a while, items with hard to detect defects, can slip 
through the cracks, therefore friendly dialogue between buyer and seller is always the best remedy to seeking any 
satisfactory solution. We will always make an attempt to achieve 100% customer satisfaction whenever possible. 
Remember that if you are not happy, we have not done our job! Thank you for visiting our site!

It is important to point out that when sellers on ebay set a price for any item, 
many factors are considered, one of which is the fact that the SELLER FEE 
can be up to 10% of the Sell Price.  So, when you think that the price listed 
might be higher than anticipated, please keep this added cost in mind. 
Thank you for watching!
