Description

 

  THIS IS A SUPER EXAMPLE OF THE RAREST YELLOW/BLACK " 4TH " LABELLED UK STEREO PRESSING WITH NO RECORDING FIRST PUBLISHED TEXT, OF ALL THE EARLIEST 4 LABELLED VARIANTS THIS IS THE HARDEST ONE TO FIND AS ONLY  LIKELY JUST A HANDFUL WERE EVER PRESSED BEFORE THE NEW CORPORATE YELLOW & BLACK LABEL OF 63 LABEL WAS SETTLED UPON & STANDARDISED. AS SUCH THIS COPY ALSO HAS THE EARLIEST MOTHER STAMPER FOR SIDE TWO OF 1G ( EVEN THE BLACK AND GOLDS START THAT SIDE WITH 1R ) WITH 1P ON SIDE ONE.

 

WHEN FIRST RELEASED THIS ALBUM WAS AT THE END OF THE BLACK & GOLD LABEL ERA, THE 1ST LABEL WAS THE BLACK & GOLD WITH DICK JAMES CREDITS FOR ALL THE LENNON McCARTNEY SONGS, FOLLOWED BY A CORRECTED BLACK & GOLD LABEL CHANGING MANY TO THE CORRECT NORTHERN SONGS ( " 2ND " LABEL ).

 

THEN WHEN THE NEW CORPORATE YELLOW & BLACK LABELS ARRIVE THE FIRST EFFORT ( " 3RD " LABEL ) HAD AN ERROR IN THAT IT INCLUDED THE SMALL 33 1/3RD THAT WAS USED ON THE BLACK & GOLDS IN ERROR SO THIS SECOND EFFORT ( " 4TH LABEL ) CORRECTLY REMOVES THIS DUPLICATION BUT STILL DOES NOT SHOW THE RECORDING FIRST PUBLISHED AND OF ALL THE LABELS THIS ONE IS THE HARDEST OF THE HARD TO FIND

 

EMI EVENTUALLY GOT IT RIGHT AND ENDED UP WITH A NEW LABEL STYLE THEY WERE HAPPY WITH AND IT SHOULD BE STRESSED THAT THESE CHANGES HAPPENED OVER A PERIOD OF LITERALLY JUST A FEW SHORT WEEKS.

(Please note that whilst I try to endeavour to adhere to strict RC gradings I will never describe ANYTHING AS MINT even when I think it to be so. As far as I am concerned any secondhand item by definition cannot be mint. However if I believe an item to be Mint  I will instead either use the terms Near Mint, mint minus, or in archive or vault condition. When I use these terms you know that in my opinion this is in effect a de-facto Mint grade )
