COMMENTS
The Beatles 1963 UK 4th. FACTORY SAMPLE DEMO pressing of "She Loves You / I'll Get You" 7" single with original "URGENT SPECIAL RUSH COPY TOP POP!" demo sleeve.

 These initial early factory sample pressings would have usually been given out to reviewers, radio stations or used as quality control within the pressing plant.
This particular copy was originally owned by ATV Music Publishing. ATV were a major player in 1960's British music who went on to buy Lennon and McCartney's 'Northern Songs' publishing company owning almost all of The Beatles back catalogue. The company was famously sold to Michael Jackson in 1985 very much to Paul McCartney's annoyance.

Released on the black Parlophone label both sides feature the "Recording First Published 1963" text and have "The Parlophone Co.Ltd. (small letter)" rim print.

"FACTORY SAMPLE NOT FOR SALE" sticker on the "I'll Get You" side and a "PROPERTY OF ATV MUSIC LIBRARY" sticker to the "She Loves You" side.

This was the biggest-selling single for fourteen years in the UK, and remains the biggest Beatles song of all time in Britain (ironically beaten out by Paul McCartney and Wings' "Mull Of Kintyre").

"She Loves You" was the first song by The Beatles to sell a million copies in Britain alone. It remained the best-selling single in the United Kingdom for fourteen years, only to be beaten out by Wings' "Mull of Kintyre," a band founded by McCartney himself.
The single entered the charts on 31 August, and remained there for 31 consecutive weeks. It reached number one on 14 September, remained there for a month, and returned for a second time on 30 November.
