NOT ONLY A SUPER PATHE MARCONI CONTRACT PRESS BUT ALSO AN EXTREMEMLY RARE TRACK " BANDED " COPY FOR SIDE ONE & which THE FIRST " SCHUMM " SEEMS TO FADE INTO COME TOGETHER  AS MENTIONED IN THE " BEATLES MIXES " BOOK BY Holger Schoeler and Thorsten Schmidt ( SEE PIC ) !

DUE TO CAPACITY ISSUES AT HAYES EMI OUT SOURCED SOME OF VINYL OF THEIR BACK CATALOUGE, INCLUDING THE BEATLES, DEEP PURPLE PINK FLOYD & SOME OTHERS, FROM DIVERSE PLACES SUCH GERMANY & EVEN THE U.S.A TO BE MARRIED UP AT HAYES WITH UK SLEEVES FOR SALE IN UK STORES. THE BEATLES BACK CAT WENT TO PATHE MARCONI IN FRANCE FROM 1973-4 & THESE ARE FAMED FOR THEIR REPRODUCTION QUALITIES AT A TIME WHEN U.K. VINYL QUALITY WAS SUFFEREING BADLY INITIALLY AS A RESULT OF THE OIL CRISIS, FROM WHICH IT WOULD NEVER FULLY RECOVER.
