Jerden Records announces new "Beatles Tapes" volume (7/20/00) A press release issued Wednesday (non-relevant parts deleted):

SEATTLE--Jerden Records, the Seattle-based nostalgia record label that is a wholly owned subsidiary of SoundWorks International, Inc. (OTCBB:SOWK), has announced the new release of rare and exclusive interviews with The Beatles, recorded in 1965.

"Here is the essential piece of Beatlemania," states producer Jim Berkenstadt, "so rare in fact that, until now, it has never before been released in this format."

Titled "The 1965 Help Tour" this CD release features The Beatles during 1965, when they would film "Help!" record and release "Help!" and "Rubber Soul" (their 5th and 6th LPs); tour Britain, France, Italy, Spain, and America; attend a Bob Dylan concert; drop in on a Byrds recording session; meet their idol, Elvis Presley; receive MBEs from the Queen; and keep up a relentless recording, interviewing, and public appearance schedule. The recordings in "Beatles Tapes V" document many of these memorable events as they happened.

This is the fifth spoken word album featuring The Beatles Jerden Records has released and the fourth produced by Berkenstadt. Other interview albums in the Jerden Rock Icon series feature Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Bill Haley and Gene Vincent. SoundWorks also has a spoken word series, under the SpeechWorks imprint, featuring Presidents, famous world orators and sports icons.
