Misses the "An EMI Recording" label text on the pressing rings compared to this otherwise identical The Beatles - The Beatles
Cat# on: spine and labels (as two individual SMO + 4-digit numbers, one on each record).
Top Opening. Flipback on inside sleeve.
Issued with 4 glossy photographs, a double-sided poster (with lyrics on reverse side) printed by Heinrich Nicolaus G.m.b.H., black inner sleeves.
Embossed lettering (The Beatles) on the front cover. "STEREO" imprinted on reverse, top right.
The copies are numbered on the front individually to each copy and imprinted '№ 0000000'. This copy is a version with stamped number (flat). See here the engraved version in relief for comparison: The Beatles - The Beatles
The LPs came with German catalogue numbers, but were pressed in France. Made in France by "Pathé Marconi".
The gatefold sleeve was imported from Germany, therefore inside, under the songs' titles, the credits are:
ELECTROLA GESELLSCHAFT M.B.H., Köln-Braunsfeld.
Printed and made in Germany by Heinrich Nicolaus G.m.b.H.
Contains the same individual typos and misspellings on the labels as most (all?) of the other French pressings:
Track B7: misses the "?"
Track C4: "hyde" instead of "hide"
Track C5: "Sexie" instead of "Sexy"
Track C7: misses both commas
Eric Clapton on A7 is uncredited for contractual reasons.
