Notes

1983-85 Capitol rainbow band label with rim text inside colorband. 2nd version of 1979 re-issue. Originally released by United Artists in 1964.

There were 2 80s Black Capitol rainbow band label variations.

This one was pressed 1983-1985 at Capitol's Jacksonville plant as identified by a "0" in the matrix runout. Both sides stamped MASTERED BY CAPITOL. On some pressings that stamp is only on one of the sides. The label has a dull label finish and has the classic 1" diameter inner-ring notch that surrounds the spindle hole. The vinyl is a little more firm than the SRC pressings, and some pressings are translucent (hold the disc up to a bright light and you can seed through it).

(The other pressing, 1986-87, were pressed at Specialty Record Corporation (The large S surrounding R and C stamped in the run-out), also identified by smooth indent/notch approx 3/4" from edge of label and glossy finish. The SRC pressings also have more etching data on the run-out. The vinyl is a little more flexible/bendy than the Capitol pressings.

As with all prior stereo pressings, the Beatles tracks are in re-channeled mono, the instrumentals are in true stereo.
