Notes

Teldec contract pressing of the first German release ('center ring' near spindlehole, 'Manufactured in Germany' in runout area). Only disk 2 has been pressed by Teldec, disk 1 represents a regular EMI copy. There is another version with disc one AND two pressed by Teldec ( This one )

First copies of this first pressing were delivered with the regular black inner sleeves, these later copies with striped white/red inners (see pics).

As these copies appear frequently in exactly the same combination on the market (disk 1: EMI, disk 2: Teldec; red/white inners; 200.000+ number) they can not be regarded as manufacturing variations.

Top opener & gatefold sleeve.

Has raised title and seven digit individual copy number (beginning with '№ ') in grey in lower right hand corner on front cover.

"Thanks to George Martin/Chris Thomas/Ken Scott/Jeff Emerick/Barry Shefield/John Smith/Richard Hamilton/Gordon House/Jeremy Banks/John Kelly/Linda Eastman/Mal/Kevin and all at number 9" (lyrics sheet).

'†© All lyrics copyright for the world by Northern Songs Ltd. England' (A7, B4, B6, C7, D3) '✱© Apple Records' (all other songs)

Eric Clapton on A7 is uncredited for contractual reasons.

Included are 4 one-sided 29x21 cm sheets with pictures of the musicians and a 12-page 12" sized booklet which can be open to a huge poster.

Hi have a first version of this version with black inner sleeves. Checked all labels and other marks.
But my discs has both no "manufactures in Germany"

Side A: YEX-709-1
Side B: YEX-710-1
Side C: YEX-711-1
SIDE D: YEX-712-1

All add-ons like lyrics and, booklet are missing - i know from the first owner that he used thme for making some decorations when he was about 21 years old (what a mess ;-) )

I've got this one but both discs are teldec pressing. Also, the number (N* 0204655) is embossed, not stamped. Is this another release? Or mixed cover/discs from different releases?
