Vee-Jay Records #3 "The Beatles & Frank Ifield On Stage"
(Update: 15th. August 2017)

veejay
Vee-Jay Records is an American record label founded in the 1950s, specializing in blues, jazz, rhythm and blues and rock and roll.
Vee-Jay was founded in Gary, Indiana, in 1953 by Vivian Carter and James C. Bracken, a husband-and-wife team who used their initials for the label’s name.
Vee-Jay had significant success with pop/rock and roll acts, notably the Four Seasons (their first non-black act) and the Beatles. Vee-Jay acquired the rights to some of the early Beatles recordings in a licensing deal with EMI, in which the main attraction at the time was another EMI performer, Frank Ifield.
Vee-Jay's biggest successes occurred from 1962 to 1964, with the ascendancy of the Four Seasons and the distribution of early Beatles material.

COMMENTS
Released around the same time as Version Two of Introducing The Beatles in February 1964, The Beatles & Frank Ifield On Stage contained four songs by the Beatles and eight songs by Frank Ifield.
The album’s front cover features a drawing of a mustached English statesman holding a pair of spectacles. A Beatles wig has been placed on his head. The top of the cover has the phrase "Jolly What!" in an attempt to give the album the proper British atmosphere.
The back cover to The Beatles & Frank Ifield On Stage reveals that only four Beatles songs are included on the album.
The text on the album’s back cover was written by Muriel Gaynor, a Vee-Jay employee who handled production matters and assisted Jay Lasker. The liner notes were sent by telegram to George S. Whiteman Graphic Design on January 10, 1964, for preparation of the back cover slicks.

Has a black label featuring an oval logo with an outer rim colorband and left justified artist-only credits. Its trail off areas include the following hand-etched markings: the matrix number 64-3852 on Side 1 and 64-3853 on Side 2; the job number ∆6295 on Side 1 and ∆6295X on Side 2; and the date 1-18-64 and the initials "URJ" on both sides. Both sides also contain the machine stamped (MR) and Audio Matrix logos. The metal parts for the record were prepared by Audio Matrix on January 18, 1964. This variation was manufactured by Monarch.
