Notes

Issued on March 24, 1964 in Canada.

Yellow MGM Label

This was the first appearance of these two tracks in Canada on a 45. Cry For A Shadow is the only known example of a Lennon-Harrison collaboration while they were Beatles. The 45 was pressed by Quality Records and has the same yellow label as the earlier My Bonnie single.

The Canadian single was never repressed. Original copies were issued with imported US picture sleeves. Less than 500 of these sleeves were imported.
