Notes

Released in laminated double flipback cover (two flipbacks: only at top and bottom of back cover, not along spine), printed in the UK. Release has matrix/runout codes XEX 579-1 and XEX 580-1 in the deadwax, which makes this the so called 'loud cut'.

Source: "First so-called 'loud cut' version of Rubber Soul: "Shortly into the production run, EMI decided that Moss had cut the album too loud and ceased production. After Moss re-cut mono lacquers on November 19, new metal parts were made, and Hayes resumed pressing the album. The albums pressed with stampers generated from the initial lacquers were not destroyed and can be identified by the "-1" following the XEX 579 (Side 1) and XEX 580 (Side 2) matrix numbers..." [Bruce Spizer, 'Beatles For Sale On Parlophone, p. 204]

Since this Dutch mono version carries the cat.numbers XEX 579-1 and XEX 580-1 in the deadwax, doesn't that make this a so called "Loud Cut" as well? From what I can find online, everywhere it says that the "-1" matrix numbers are from that "Loud Cut". If someone can confirm, then it should be amended in this submission as well, correct?
