HÖRZU Label
(Update: 19th. August 2017)
sleeve HÖRZU is a German weekly television listings magazine published by Axel Springer. The magazine first appeared in 1946 as the first radio program magazine to be produced in what was then the British zone of occupation. Over the years Hörzu has shifted the emphasis of its coverage from radio to television programs.
The first edition of the magazine appeared on 11 December 1946 as HÖR ZU! Die Rundfunkzeitung ("LISTEN! The radio newspaper") as it was originally entitled. There were three editions in the first year of publication, 48 in 1947, and since then the magazine has appeared 52 or 53 times annually.

Circulation of the magazine increased rapidly. 1949 saw the first appearance of Mecki, Hörzu's cartoon hedgehog mascot. In the 1960s Hörzu produced and released records as a subsidiary of Electrola, Cologne. Since 1965, the Hörzu has awarded the annual Golden Camera television prize. (from Wikipedia)

COMMENTS
Red label with black ink.
The "TV/record player" logo started near the end of 1972.
The TV/record player logo, together with the new all-red labels, was in use until (late) 1975 or early 1976, when SHZE was changed to "1 C" numbers and the logo appeared in black on the regular blue Odeon labels. Die Beatles (= Please Please Me), MMT and Help all appeared with SHZE numbers and the new logo (sleeve) and were pressed between 1973 and 1975.

Matrix number: SHZE 117-A-2   SHZE 117-B-2

This stereo versions of "Love Me Do" and "P.S. I Love You" have been created from the mono versions, because original master tapes are lost.

The "Linksschrift"-cover is rare, and for all I know it only appeared with '65 copies of Help (Alle Rechte ... rim). It was not 'immediately withdrawn', as some sources say. It was not a blatant error, so there was no need to destroy copies. The design may have been changed immediately, or the left-right thing may have been a mistake made at the printers' when they assembled the b/w and colour transparencies (unlikely). In any case, several thousand copies should be out there. "Rechtsschrift" covers vastly outnumber them because all subsequent pressings with that sleeve had them, but for first editions the difference may be not that overwhelming. Maybe 1:10?

Red label with black ink.
The "TV/record player" logo started near the end of 1972.
The TV/record player logo, together with the new all-red labels, was in use until (late) 1975 or early 1976, when SHZE was changed to "1 C" numbers and the logo appeared in black on the regular blue Odeon labels. Die Beatles (= Please Please Me), MMT and Help all appeared with SHZE numbers and the new logo (sleeve) and were pressed between 1973 and 1975.
