Notes

Initial numbered edition with top opening G & L gatefold sleeve, black inners, poster & 4 colour prints, dark green Apple labels with Ⓟ & "Sold In The UK...." text.
This was released in error omitting the text 'E.M.I. Recording' on the label, so a second version The Beatles was promptly released with the corrected labels.

Eric Clapton uncredited on A7 for contractual reasons.

I do have both mono versions (with and without EMI text). But the one with the missing EMI credits is also missing the EMI credits (and the printing credits for Garrod and Lofthouse) on the collage poster as well. Do all LPs with the missing EMI credit on the label having no EMI credit on the poster as well? Maybe somebody knows...?

I'm having trouble identifying a CD release I have. It looks to be a 1987 Europe release excpet the Matrix Runout reads
Matrix / Runout (Inner Ring, CD 1): CDP 746443 2 AR. 1-12-1-EMI SWINDON
Matrix / Runout (Inner Ring, CD 2): CDP 746443 2 AR. 6-8-9 EMI SWINDON

Is this release already listed or shall I add it myself? Any help is welcomed
Thank You

I found a copy of this at a church flea market. It did not have the jacket or inserts. Question: Does anyone know if the numbered jackets are matched to the vinyl or if you can find out what the number was on the jacket from the vinyl runouts? I haven't seen anything and figure it was jacket only, not a matched production. Thoughts? Thanks. John

I have a Stereo copy of this. On the front cover "The STERGIOS'S" is embossed on the front cover above 'THE BEATLES'. PCS 7067/8. I haven't seen this in any other listings.

Hey Beatles experts, maybe one of you can let me know what I have: 1968 US Scranton (IAM) pressing with "Bungalow Bill" & "Why don't we do it on the road?" with the question mark. I reviewed all the OG Scranton pressings and none of them seem to have these 2 (amongst others) MP on Record 1. Anyone in the know? Curious only, not for resale. Thank you :)

Could someone please help me identify this copy??

I have a US copy with "the Beatles" printed in light grey (not embossed). Both records have a "0", identifying them as being pressed at the Jacksonville plant. Record 1 DOES NOT have any text stating that it is disc 1, although my disc 2 states "Record 2" in the upper right side. Also, Sides 1 & 3 both have the credits ring that starts at the bottom of the apple at about 7:00 and run to the top right, around 3:00. Runouts are as follows:
Side 1: SWBO-X1-101 J54 #2
Side 2: SWBO-X2-101-J49 #3
Side 3: SWBO-X3-101-J52 #1 2
Side 4: SWBO-X4-101-J48 #3 2

I'm wondering if maybe the original owner swapped discs with a different copy so now they're mismatched? I just find it interesting that if that's true they're both Jacksonville still pressings. If anyone knows please let me know! Thanks!

My copy has EMI Recording on side 1 and 2 and not on Sides 3 and 4.
What does this mean ?

The first verse of 'Happiness Is A Warm Gun' contains the imperfect authentic cadence in natural minor mode:

Greetings. I've been wanting to buy a vinyl copy of this album, but curious which press to buy. I'm not all that big on budget and there are also shipping costs, so it's up to 40$ for a Near Mint copy. If possible, released between 1968-2000. Thanks!
