On my copy, one of the variants of the runout etching shows a T-1-2228-P5-P for side 1 (variant 1) and a runout etching of T2-2228-T8-P for side 2 (variant 6). What's the reason for this?

I can't find my copy on here. It's a mono copy with blue catalog sleeves. Print code in bottom-right of back cover is 6. Rainbow labels without subsidiary text. Cat number on top-right of front cover next to "File Under:" text. Side 1 runout: T-1-2228-H-9' (L.A. starburst). Side 2 runout: T-2228-J-12' (stamped 2) (L.A. starburst)

I was in the midst of submitting my version when I finally found this one -- only difference on mine that I can see is I have an '18' in the lower-right instead of a 12; I've also seen a 17. Not sure if that has much significance, so I'll just add this one to my collection...

Anyway, I snagged a decent copy from my local shop recently. Sounds pretty good after a quick wash!

Oddly enough Beatles ’65 was released in December of ’64, an album that included fourteen tracks with were taken directly from Beatles For Sale, along with “I’ll Be Back” taken from the movie “A Hard Day’s Night”. All of this of course had listeners rather perplexed, as nearly all of the material was available other places.

Keeping all of the above in mind, while the record was not a straight ahead new release, an almost a greatest hits sort of thing, the assemblage of tracks held together rather well, with the song tracking order having been duly considered, allowing the music to flow in an unfettered fashion of both style and context. Nevertheless, even at this juncture in the Beatles career, they still found it necessary, or perhaps safe, to include no less than four cover songs. Even more strange is the fact that those who purchased the 8-track tape received a bonus in the form of “You Can’t Do That”.

With all respect to the Beatles, what the Capitol and Parlophone record labels were doing was almost counter intuitive, almost as if they were in competition with each other, and the listening public was being taken advantage of. With Beatles ’65 jumping overnight from chart position 98 to number 1, I was certainly scraping my head. It seemed that the labels thought that the record buying public would forever stay the same age, wanting more of the same, yet we weren’t, we were becoming more mature, more worldly, while creatures such as Bob Dylan were releasing Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 in 1965, meaning Dylan had recorded his material in 1964, yet the Beatles were giving listeners the same ol’ song and dance, when what I was looking for, though didn’t know it at the time, was Rubber Soul and the Beatles advance into fresh thought, ideas and musical visions of adulthood.

Of course, there was no one who didn’t realize that the label was capitalizing on the gift giving holiday, and that felt like a cheap shot with Lennon saying, “There was a lousy period when we didn’t seem to have any material for a new LP,” regarding the ’65’ album, which sort of made me feel that the Beatles were in on the scam of sorts. Regardless, it was a new twelve inch to hold, new images to look at, though in reality, it was old wine in brand new bottle.

Actually the album’s artwork was far more inspiring than the music, the posing with umbrellas, springs and brooms was rather avant garde, bringing for a new concept in visual arts and photographic concepts. Though what most fans didn’t understand was that the concept of the four images were intended to represent the four seasons of the year, Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, photographed by Robert Whitaker. Whitaker also did the butcher album photo for Yesterday and Today.

So yes, all and all, it’s not a bad album, it just is what it is, warm and harmonic, a collection of songs presented elsewhere in a rather pleasing fashion that play out well on one’s stereo … though certainly nothing to get hung about.

My copy is similar to this version but the runout has a stamp that I read as VI (like the Roman numeral) but appears to be what's read as an upside down "V" and a "1" on the runout similar to 611439. My copy also has a wide pressing ring, much wider than the 1" shown on accompanying images.
