COMMENTS
Capitol launched its Star Line singles series in January 1962 as a vehicle to reissue old hit singles. The records were packaged in blue and white sleeves that proudly proclaimed gfrom the Tower of Stars ... comes the STAR LINE single series ... special selections of hit recordings by the brightest stars!h The initial releases showcased the variety and depth of Capitolfs master recordings.
The early Star Line singles covered jazz, folk, pop and country.
Later releases in the Star Line series included R&B, rock-a-billy and rock.
It was inevitable that Capitol would issue records by the Beatles on its Star Line series, and that the company did on 11th. October, 1965, with the simultaneous release of six singles.
None of these songs had previously been issued on Capitol singles.

The first four Beatles Star Line discs were the same as the four Beatles 45s issued by Vee-Jay during the first four months of 1964.
The Star Line reissues are:
  • Capitol 6061, Twist And Shout / Therefs A Place (Tollie 9001 and Oldies 152)
  • Capitol 6062, Love Me Do / P.S. I Love You (Tollie 9008 and Oldies 151)
  • Capitol 6063, Please Please Me / From Me To You (Vee-Jay 581 and Oldies 150)
  • Capitol 6064, Do You Want To Know A Secret / Thank You Girl (Vee-Jay 587 and Oldies 149)
Capitol documents indicate that the Beatles Star Line singles were deleted from the catalog on 31th. December, 1965.

The label backdrops for the Star Line singles are based on Capitolfs orange and yellow swirl labels, except that the two colors are lime green and emerald green.

The print layout is similar to the regular orange and yellow swirl singles with the groupfs name below the center hole, the song title and writersf credits above the center hole and all other information to the right.
The lower rim perimeter print is the same as the print appearing on the regular issue 45s.

The East Coast versions of the singles have large record numbers and thin song titles.
They were pressed by Capitolfs Scranton plant.
The West Coast singles have small numbers and thick song titles.
They were pressed in Los Angeles by Capitol.

The Star Line singles were packaged with custom blue and white die cut center hole record sleeves. The front side has seven blue bars with gTHE STAR LINEh printed twice in white. These blue bars start towards the top of the sleeve and are separated by white bands. The lower portion of the front side has a blue rectangle with the Capitol and Star Line logos and the phrase gTHE BIGGEST HITS BY THE BRIGHTEST STARSh in white.
The Beatles Star Line 45s were initially issued with sleeves that did not list the Beatles titles in the series.
