COMMENTS
Atlantic Records was one of several companies that turned down the Beatles in 1963. The first single (ATCO 6302) paired two songs featuring Tony Sheridan on lead vocal: "Sweet Georgia Brown" and "Take Out Some Insurance On Me Baby". By the time the record was released in early June, 1964.
On month after issuing its first Beatles' single, Atlantic released a second pairing of the Bert Kaempfert-produced songs on 6th July 1964. "Ain't She Sweet", with John Lennon on Lead vocal, was coupled with Tony Sheridan's performance of "Nobody's Child".

Atlantic used three different factories to press its first Atco Beatles single:
(1) MGM Records in Bloomfield, New Jersey
labels printed by Queens Litho and can be identified by the stylized machine stamped "S" in their trail off areas.
(2)Monarch Records in Los Angeles, California
pressings are styrene and have the machine stamped (MR) logo and hand etched job numbers in their trail off areas.
(3) Plastic Products in Memphis, Tennessee
do not have a factory identification logo.


Many of the Ain't She Sweet singles were packaged with a picture sleeve. The sleeves have a straight cut top and were manufactured by Queens Litho.

ATCO 6308 1st. Press: The initial pressings of the record do not list the song-writers for Nobody's Child, but credit the arrangement to Tony Sheridan by printing "Arr. by Sheridan" below the song title. The publisher's name is listed as "Hill & Range, BMI".
Type-1) The Bloomfield stock copies (=this record): has "THE BEATLES" in small loosely spaced letters and "With Tony Sheridan" below the group's name on Side-2.
The side-1 has "VOCAL BY JOHN LENNON" in small uppercase letters to the left of the center hole.
Type-2-1)  Some of the  discs are styrene  Monarch Pressings:  have "THE BEATLES" in mid-sized tightly spaced letters and "with TONY SHERIDAN" below the group's name on the side-2. The side-1 has "Vocal by JOHN LENNON" below the group's name.
Their trail off areas have the job number ∆-53303 on side-1 and ∆-53304 on the side-2. The (MR) logo is mistakenly stamped in reverse.
Type-2-2) There are also vinyl West Coast discs that were pressed by another factory. These records do not have job numbers in their trail off areas.
Type-3) The Plastic Products pressings: have the same basic layout as the Bloomfield disc except that the group's name and the John Lennon vocal credit are in larger letters.

ATCO 6308 2nd. Press: The second pressings of the single have the same side-1 labels, but the side-2 correctly credits the song to "Foree-Coben" and lists the publisher as "Milene, ASCAP"
Type-1) The Bloomfield Pressings
Type-2) Monarch Pressings
Type-3) The Plastic Products Pressings

ATCO 6308 3rd. Press: The third pressings. In 1969, Atco reissued the single. These later pressings have different perimeter print. The reissue labels have "Mfg. by Atlantic Recording Corp., 1841 Broadway, New York, N. Y." in black uppercase letters.
