SA9. A Swedish Parlophone Records “She Loves You
Sleeve” Autographed By The Beatles On Their Very First Trip Abroad
Released in the United Kingdom on August 23, 1963, “She
Loves You” (with “I’ll Get You” as the B-side) was an amazing new hit record for
The Beatles and it set and then went on to eclipse several records in the United
Kingdom record charts. Without question “She Loves You” is the song that thrust
The Beatles full scale into the British national spotlight. It was for them the
next step in their amazing progression after their first chart topping hit “From
Me To You”. But it was not only Great Britain that took notice – so did other
European counties – most notably Sweden, located across the North Sea, some
1,200 miles to the northeast of Liverpool.
Because of the success of “She Loves You”, The Beatles
were in heavy demand in Sweden and were immediately booked to play a series of
concerts there in late October. And so The Beatles left for Stockholm on October
23, 1963 - the very same day the band had finished up recording for their second
album “With The Beatles”.
Here is a Swedish issue Parlophone Records 45rpm record
sleeve for “She Loves You” that has been autographed beautifully by all four
members of The Beatles in black ballpoint pen on their respective images. The
sleeve features a great Dezo Hoffman shot from the same July 1963 photo session
that produced the classic ‘seated collarless’ pose. As depicted on the yellow
tinted image of this sleeve, each member not only has their own chair, but their
own genuine smile.
This record sleeve was signed on October 28, 1963, when
The Beatles did a 30 minute in-store autograph session at the Waidele Music
Store in Borås, Sweden. Later that evening they performed in concert at the
Borås Hallen in Borås. The sleeve is in good overall condition, with some areas
of paper loss on the front, and written on the back are the name and initials of
the original owner, “Eva Hansson”.
For any collector who has been waiting and wanting to
step up to the all important category a Beatles signed record sleeve, here is
your chance to own one without breaking the bank…..$17,500.
