    Notes

    A mispressing from the original rejected Capitol master. When mastering the White Album for the U.S., Capitol Records had applied much more dynamic limiting in the mastering process than the U.K. release. When George Harrison (who was in the U.S. at the time) heard this version, he demanded Capitol remaster the album to reflect the U.K. mastering before the album's official U.S. release. However, stampers taken from the original rejected Capitol master did make it out to the Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Scranton by mistake and were used in the first batch of pressings at Scranton before being retired and replaced with George Harrison's approved U.S. master.

    First pressing has "Mfd. by Capitol...." in white rim text on sides 2 and 4, with various title mistakes and unique number on the front cover.

    This 1st press has A4 "Obladi Oblada", A6 "Bungalow Bill", B7 'Why Don't We Do It In the Road' (without question mark) , D1 "Revolution No. 1", D5 "Revolution No. 9" and D6 "Goodnight".
    Cover has "The Beatles" embossed, located towards the lower right corner, and sequentially numbered.

    Pressed at Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Scranton, as identified by the "IAM" in a triangle stamp in the run-outs.

    Comes with fold-out lyric poster and 4 glossy photos on card stock.

    Apparently I accidentally bought one of these at my local record store three years back because it had all of the label errors. I didn’t even know about the rejected master issue until a very short while ago, but the numbers match up. Anyways, funny thing I kind of wanted to note... mine is copy number A1582018. This would’ve been one of the very first US copies pressed and put together, yet it has a number in the millions. Yeah... they didn’t pack these in numerical order, they just grabbed whichever box of covers was closest, completed the copies, and moved on to the next box, which is the practical way to do that. Kinda diminishes the significance of those low numbers, doesn’t it?
