Beatles Signed "A Hard Day's Night" United Artists Soundtrack Record Album John Lennon Paul McCartney George Harrison Ringo Starr Autograph
The album "A Hard Day's Night" signed on the back cover by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr in blue ballpoint or biro pen. Making this a rare piece even among Beatles signed items are a number of factors. Beatles signed record albums are a scarce items to begin with, but U.S. releases are much scarcer still. The signatures are comparatively large, and predominantly over the white area of the back cover. Adding to it's scarcity, this soundtrack was the only U.S. release by United Artists. Additionally, this record still bears it's original plastic shrink wrap, though splitting and cracking from age. This came from the personal collection of booking agent Al Reuter, who worked with Bill Graham and Don Kirshner, among others. The album cover is well preserved for it's age, as it still has the shrink wrap on, though the shrink wrap is splitting and cracking in spots. The cover appears to have been scuffed at the upper left corner, as viewed from the back, against a rough surface to quickly cut through the shrink wrap at time of signing, to allow for the signatures to be placed on the back album cover. The vinyl record has some scuffing and scratching.
