The Beatles Records on Vee-Jay by Bruce Spizer, the definitive source on the subject of the time the Beatles were released in the United States by the small, Chicago-based R&B label Vee-Jay Records, has been sold out in its hard cover for several years and selling on the second-hand market in places like Amazon for over $600. It is now available from the author in an all-new, expanded digital version.
Available for pre-order now from the author's site Beatle.net, this new digital version of The Beatles Records on Vee-Jay will include more stories and more images. This new digital version will be interactive, and include bonus images, hyperlinks and cross references. Readers will be able to zoom in to see details, the text will be searchable, and it will be possible to add bookmarks and annotations.
Each copy of the eBook ordered from Beatle.net will include a special 8.5x11 collector's card with images of the Vee-Jay picture sleeves and albums covers and another 8.5x11 signature card signed by Bruce Spizer showing the front and back covers of the book.
In addition, the first 100 orders will receive an original copy of the promotional booklet for the first edition of the The Beatles Records on Vee-Jay that appeared in Goldmine magazine's November 1, 1997, issue. This is not a copy, but rather the actual insert from 1997!
About this new digital endeavor, Mr. Spizer says, "Now that I have undertaken my first eBook, I gotta admit I am quite excited about it. I hope you enjoy the eBook as much as I have putting it together."
