The Beatles ‎– The Beatles

2 × Vinyl, 7", 45 RPM, EP, Unofficial Release, White; second pressing


This second pressing has a simplified sleeve, with the bottom folded up inside to hold the records in place. The track info & pictures are on the back cover. There is no serial number, but EP-1 is in the matrix-code as is APPLE. Also no writing on the spine, and the inside is blank. The labels are also blank and the records are *white*. The poster (folded) is included on this second pressing.

There is a first pressing of this title which contains a gatefold sleeve that resembled a mini version of the White Album. It has an individual serial number on the front cover, printed labels on the two white vinyl 45's, and a 13" x 8" two-sided poster that was folded and put into the package. Also, the cover's spine reads: The Beatles Apple EP-1.

In addition to the matrix number, the inner grooves of the second pressing also features a message, but this is not complete because the extra text in matrix Side C is missing (see matrix/runout).This in contrast to the first pressing.
