In order to be somewhat consistent in the Vee Jay releases, I've included this interview LP released in the United States by Vee Jay records in early November 1964. In fact, November would see two interview records by The Beatles in the month of November '64, this one and one from Capitol records (see next post).
"Hear The Beatles Tell All" was originally released only in mono with the catalogue number VJLP 202 PRO (on the labels) or PRO 202 (on the cover).
The front cover states that the material on the record is "live in person interviews recorded during their latest American tour" and has the LP title underneath this blurb. Various coloured drawn question marks and exclamation marks are scattered throughout and small blurbs on "teaser" liner "what you will find inside" style questions are within coloured shaped boxes, circles, etc.
The back cover is black on white with the "VJ" brackets logo at the top and mini record covers for "Songs, Pictures and Stories", "Beatles vs. The Four Seasons" and "The Beatles & Frank Ifield (portrait version)" are shown. Also shown are picture sleeves (for three) and song titles (for one) of four singles on Vee Jay/Tollie: "Please Please Me/ From Me To You", "Do You Want To Know A Secret?/Thank You Girl", "Twist And Shout/ There's A Place" and "Love Me Do/ P.S. I Love You".
The labels for the records are on the Vee Jay "bracket" with the catalogue number either written as "VJLP 202 PRO" or "VJLP 202" (rarer version). There are no "side 1" or "side 2" markets (a double A side LP ??)
One side consists of radio DJ Dave Hull (from radio station KRLA in Los Angeles) interviewing The Beatles along with percussion sound effects from Hal Blaine. The other side consists of Jim Steck interviewing John Lennon and once again sound effects by Hal Blaine. The recordings were edited by Lou Adler. This is probably why the labels on the LP credit these recording as "A Dunhill Production".
Promotional labels exist for this LP. These labels are white with blue print and the catalogue number consists of "PRO 202". Both the words "promotional" and "not for sale" are written on the left and right of the VJ brackets logo respectively. VJ screwed up these labels with errors when they mistakenly credit Dave Hull interviewing Lennon and Jim Steck interviewing The Beatles ( it should be the other way around). This was obviously corrected for the commercial versions.
The LP was re-issued in 1979 with the same cover. The exception was that there is a "stereo" implication at the top of the front cover (although the record plays in mono). Also, the re-issued label has much larger print. There is no stereo designation on either the originals nor the re-issued labels.
