What makes this USA original 1971 release is that it confirms the bitter and twisted animosity that Lennon and clearly in total conjunction and cahoots with Ono felt about McCartney and Apple Corp.

The stick a finger up labels only happened USA wise because of Klein's management clout over Capitol in all other territories it was released the standard green whole and white sliced McCartney designated labels were used (it is important to note that this did not have a 1971 UK release because L & O wanted their take on the label design, EMI laid down the law and legal agreements made especially after the 'wide' album debacle.

The apple depicted is not a printing colour change, it's not McCartney's chosen and registered trade mark apple!!! It's a different variety with a more less round, pronounced and harder shape. and done and used to stick two fingers up.

This is the only reason to own and have this |USA 1 1/2" LH die-cut in your Apple Beatles Lennon and McCartney collections

(although not stated on the labels both tracks are in stereo).
