Another Canadian Love Me Do with no dash or number sold this week for 165$, but it was not as in good shape as was the last one that sold for around 600$ a few week ago. Even more interesting, a very rare mono copy of the Swinging Blue Jeans' second album "Don't Make Me Over" (Capitol T-6159) sold this week for 560$ !!
This album is quite rare because by the time that Capitol had issued this LP in the summer of 1966, the whole British Invasion had been supplanted by the good vibration sounds of The Beach Boys as well as the new sounds of Dylan, The Byrds, The Lovin Spoonful, and The Mamas And The Papas. The Swinging Blue Jeans looked very dated. This second album by the Swinging Blue Jeans «bombed» upon release and most copies were returned directly to Capitol where they were destroyed.
Not much action here in November! But we did manage to add loads of new pictures in almost all the sections. Make sure you take a look at the 6000 page, as well as the 22000, 72000, 70000, 85000, studio 2, and MUSE pages!
Some sections were recently updated. Make sure you check out the 6000 series page, the Corporate History page, as well as the Beatles on the radio page.
A PDF printable list of the 6000 series should also be online soon.
There is also an interesting article linked to the Beatles poster on the left side of the homepage, explaining everything about this memorable 1966 Toronto show.
