Good Grammy.

When was the last time Ringo drummed behind Paul?

I'm glad Paul chose "Queenie Eye" over "New"

Ringo's 70th when Paul sang birthday - as a complete guess?

From an article just posted by parlance in the news thread:

They joined forces for the first time in five years at Sunday night's Grammy Awards

 

Hum, Ringo's 70th would be more recent than that. I'm in way over my head here as far as Beatles knowledge/trivia goes, but I saw that in the article and thought I'd throw it into this conversation.

Here's Paul singing Birthday, with Ringo joining in, as a surprise for the forementioned drummer on the 7th July 2010 , and Joe's article on it.

 The fidelity sounded much better than Capitol's albums, very much the same as the UK releases, good thicker vinyl too with the plain black 'VeeJay' label...:-) 

Just dug my old copy of this album out - it's the first release according to the cover, track listing and record, funny thing is the tracks are definitely in mono and although it plays well, the fidelity leaves a lot to be desired.

The only thing I can think of is it could be counterfeit? I bought it from a charity shop around 35 years ago in Liverpool, which makes me wonder how it ended up there? A 'Cunard Yank' perhaps? Looks genuine though, a weird one.

 

EDIT:

A bit of digging around found this on Wiki - 

throughout the early part of 1964. Injunctions against Vee-Jay's album were issued, lifted and restored more than once. Because the album was often pressed quickly between restraining orders, there are almost two dozen different label variations, including mono and stereo copies, manufactured at numerous pressing plants. Finally, on 9 April 1964, the two labels settled. Vee-Jay was granted a license giving it the right to issue the 16 Beatles' songs it controlled, in any way it saw fit, until 15 October 1964. At that time, its licence expired, and all rights would revert to Capitol. During the time Introducing... The Beatles was available, it sold approximately 1,300,000 mono copies and approximately 41,000 stereo copies. Because only 3.1 percent of all of the LPs were in stereo, true stereo copies are rare.

Plus - 

Starting in the late 1960s and continuing through the 1990s, Introducing... The Beatles was frequently counterfeited. These counterfeits can be identified by the cover printing and quality, the label, or the sound quality.
