We've taken two censuses of band-signed Beatles albums, but we haven't done one for Beatles-signed EPs yet.

Band-signed Beatles albums are rare. Only about 15-16 US release Beatles-signed albums are known, and only about 113-120 UK releases. 75 or so of those are "Please Please Me," the Beatles first album.

No doubt there are more that haven't reached the autograph market yet, but these numbers are a good indication of their rarity.

Beatles band-signed Extended Play records (EPs) are much, much rarer. Only 10 or less may be known. 

Let's account for them title buy title, with sales histories and images that can be found.

Let the census begin!

Here's a Twist & Shout EP that Frank Caiazzo Beatles Autographs is currently offering for sale at $30,000.

Caiazzo said years ago that 10 or fewer EPs were known and he says that in his current listing.

Thanks, I'm posting it.

Offered by RR Auction and signed in August of '63

Currently offered?

No, I saved the image in February of 2014.

Authenticated by Tracks UK

Signed on 7/19/64, offered by Fab4Collectibles, Authenticated by Caiazzo

Thanks, Nick. Here it is. It's a "She Loves You" French Odeon release:

Here's one that was offered by Tracks about 5 years ago, The Beatles' Hits!

Jason Cornthwaite from Tracks said that besides the ones listed, he knows of these EPs:

2 UK Release "Twist and Shout"

1 UK "Beatles Hits"

1 UK "All My Loving"

2 Swedish "Twist and Shout"

The Beatles Hits EP pictured above is the one mentioned by Jason from Tracks. So that count is at 1 right now for the Beatles Hits.
