ALLE RECHTE DES PLATTENHERSTELLERS UND EIGENTÜMERS DES AUFGENNOMMENEN WERKES VORBEHALTEN.

History: This Swiss Club Special Edition pressing Single of The Beatles was available exclusively and only to a very limited number of members of the Swiss EX LIBRIS record and book club in 1965. You´ve had to spend quite a high amount of money to become a member of EX LIBRIS. All the many other Swiss record shops (and there were some really great ones amongst them) have sold mainly the German, French and British pressings of the Beatles latest recordings. The British originals sold best. Ex Libris wasn´t considered a very hip shop at all, and so only a small number of people went to ever shop there, but few of them would decide to go for any records by the Beatles, and that´s why they ARE so incredibly rare!! Only around 500 copies of them have sold.

(*)Grammoclub Ex Libris Club (Ex Libris Records):
Swiss record club, label, publisher, and stores. The label belongs to Migros (famous Swiss Supermarket chain). Their releases were never available from any supermarkets, but only to members of the fairly small Ex Libris club. The label was originally called "Grammoclub Ex Libris" (during the 50s and the 60s), but was shortened to Ex Libris towards the mid 60s. Only club members were allowed to buy from their shops. You've had to pay a fairly high fee in order to become a member of them, which is something that only a few wealthy elder people were able to do. In retrospect they mainly seem to have sold their records to some older folks, or to some family-people: They've usually bought Classical Music, Easy Listening, Jazz, Kiddie-Records, and the likes -- only few of their buyers would be interested in Rock 'N' Roll, or Beat back then, therefore only a few copies of their nowadays highly collectable releases by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Elvis Presley (Golden Boy LP) seem to have sold. Most of the young Swiss people would shop someplace else, because they could not afford to pay for the high membership fee in order to buy such a Rolling Stones LP or 45 from Ex Libris.

"GEMA**/BIEM***" :a marking that indicates what company is responsible for the copyright payments for the material released on the record to the proper publishers. It is important to remember that a record with the above-mentioned marking isn't necessarily made in Germany but which was intended for sale in Germany.
