COMMENTS
Stereo Screen Highlight series.
1965 Japanese original album cover slick (no record) featuring the Beatles on tank in full color.
Also known as the "Tank cover (**)" taken from "help" as this album compiles songs taken from various movie films performed by Screen Studio Orchestra / arrenged by Kosuke Onozaki (*).
This slick has the back over. The front and back are glued together and the right side of the cover has been cropped. The spine is visible.
Toshiba Records logomark was printed at the upper left corner of the front sleeve.
"Ever Clean Records (Red vinyl)" logo was printed at the upper right corner of the back cover.

Red vinyl:
Besides good sound and quality printing, Japanese records also offered some other things of interest to the collector.  One of the primary manufacturing companies in Japan, Toshiba, pressed a lot of their records on red, “Everclean” vinyl from 1958 through 1974 (maybe).  While not pressed as collectors’ items, these red vinyl pressings are more sought out by collectors than their black vinyl counterparts.  The Everclean vinyl was designed to be less prone to collecting static electricity and dust than the more common black vinyl.

(*) Kosuke Onozaki (28th. August 1931 - 11th. November 2017)
Born in Akita City in 1931. Graduated from Tokyo University of the Arts. He was musical director, arranger, and conductor of Yamaha’s World Popular Song Festival for twenty years. As well as arrangements for television, movies, and commercials, he has arranged works by Kei Ogura and Miyuki Nakajima. In total, he has over ten thousand pieces of music to his name. He arranged and conducted the compilations “Discover favorite Japanese songs through their tunes” and “Discover favorite Japanese songs with an orchestra.”

(**) Tank Cover:
The second day (4th. May 1965) of location filming on Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire involved work on several scenes for Help!, The Beatles’ second feature film.
The mimed performance of George Harrison’s I Need You was among the scenes filmed during this time. Also on hand were troops from 3 Division, Royal Artillery, who were on exercises there at the time. The army also allowed their tanks and other equipment to appear in the film.
