Notes

℗ 1969.
"An E.M.I. Recording"
Mfd. in U.K.

This version is the "first label, revised cover" version:
Dark green labels with a whole apple on the A-side label and a half, sliced-open apple on B-side. The labels have the "(An E.M.I. Recording)" text on two lines and small "33 1/3" text moved to the left side. Publishing year printed with a small ℗ symbol. The B-side label does not have "Her Majesty" credits. The labels are quite dark, although the actual shade of green varies between copies.
Comes in a full laminated cover without flaps on the back side. The front cover has the drain showing, the rear cover has the Apple logo aligned with the text, and 'Her Majesty' is not listed.

Some copies were packaged with a die-cut black inner sleeve.

"Thanks to George Martin, Geoff Emerick and Phillip McDonald".

      Hi there, my copy seems to be the "firet label, revised cover"-version, but has a slightly different runout Matrix YEX.749 - 4 and YEX.750 - 3.
      I couldn`t find another release with this number. Is anyone there who can give me a hint?

            These UK First Pressings man, Abbey Road will never sound better than this right here. I love the remix too, but this is the closest you can be to the master tape, and it shows by presenting an amazing stereo image and extremely punchy bass.

              My copy of this sounds excellent. Full and punchy bottom end and crystal clear instrument separation.

                I’ve got what I think is a first label revised cover version so the apple is not misaligned and the cover picture shows the drain but I still have the black inner sleeve. Is this correct? Thanks

                  HELP NEEDED PLEASE!

                  I have all the hallmarks of this pressing ASIDE FROM the Apple is mislaigned at the rear. It also has a white sleeve with Patent No. 1,125,555, on the bottom left hand side. Also, MADE IN ENGLAND on the bottom right had side.

                  Characteristics:

                  PCS 7088

                  Matrix No. - Side 1 - YEX 749 - 2 (Stamper Code - OGR 6) Side 2 - 750 - 1 (Stamper Code MGQ 7)

                  As stated: Everything follows the details in the notes below but THE APPLE IS MISALIGNED!!! Is it possible this is a RARE VARIANT????

                  This version is the "first label, revised cover" version:
                  Dark green labels with a whole apple on the A-side label and a half, sliced-open apple on B-side. The labels have the "(An E.M.I. Recording)" text on two lines and small "33 1/3" text moved to the left side. Publishing year printed with a small ℗ symbol. The B-side label does not have "Her Majesty" credits. The labels are quite dark, although the actual shade of green varies between copies.
                  Comes in a full laminated cover without flaps on the back side. The front cover has the drain showing, the rear cover has the Apple logo aligned with the text, and 'Her Majesty' is not listed.

                  "Thanks to George Martin, Geoff Emerick and Phillip McDonald".

                      "The one and only", mastered by Martin and Emerick and cut by Malcolm Davies.

                      Paul's bass is front and center, but spread out evenly with the other instruments so nothing overpowers the mix, not unlike US pressings where the mid-range is boosted and lacks the shimmer and definition found here. It was cut quiet, so you'll need to turn up the volume to get the full effect, but man, it is out of this world! It features an amazing soundstage that gives you an "in the studio with the band" feel. I still can't get over how good this sounds, there's so much more openness and depth to everything - not only my favorite Beatles album, but HANDS DOWN the BEST Beatles pressing of them all.
