COMMENTS
Odeon White & Gold label type-1:
Odeon was the main label for German Beatles records until 1968, when the records were given the Apple labels, still distributed by Electrola. As an example, "With The Beatles", with a green Odeon label (being a mono LP), as opposed to white/gold labels for the stereo counterparts. The excerpt from the back cover shows the Electrola GmbH imprint.
By 1965?, German Odeon was turning to all-stereo.

The Original Odeon label (stereo) LP's appear in two slightly different styles. The first of these styles, features the following print around the rim of the label:

ALLE RECHTE DES PLATTENHERSTELLERS UND EIGENTÜMERS DES AUFGENNOMMENEN WERKES VORBEHALTEN.
VERVIELFÄLTIGUNG, ÖFFENTLICHE AUFFÜHRUNG. RUNDFUNKSENDUNG UNTERSAGT
(ALL RIGHTS OF THE OWNER OF SHEET MANUFACTURER AND BEEN EXCLUDED WORK RESERVED. COPYING, PUBLIC PERFORMANCE. RADIO BROADCAST PROHIBITED)

In mid 1966, the rim print was changed on all Odeon releases to read:

URHEBER. UND LEISTUNGSSCHUTZRECHTE, BESONDERS VERVIELFÄLTIGUNG
(AUSSER ZUM PERSÖNLICHEN GEBRAUCH), VERMIETUNG. AUFFÜHRUNG, SENDUNG, VORBEHALTEN
(COPYRIGHT AND  PROPERTY RIGHTS, ESPECIALLY REPRODUCTION (EXCEPT FOR PERSONAL USE), RENT, PERFORMANCE, BROADCAST)

Stereo copies pressed prior to the elimination of mono are found with a large, round, gold stereo sticker (A.K.A. "Mirror Ball mark"). Stereo copies of those same LP's and of the next few (stereo-only) LP's are normally found with a smaller, rectangular stereo sticker. Later stereo LP's are found either with the contents of the stereo sticker printed on the cover itself or without any stereo sticker.

"And I Love Her" extended stereo mix:
The German version of Something New contained an edited version of the 22 June stereo mix, repeating the closing guitar riff six times instead of four. This version also appeared on the American Rarities album in 1980. It is not known when this edit was made.

EMI/Odeon Blue Label type-3:
The change to the blue label came during the second half of 1968, some months before  the  change to the EEC catalog numbers.
Several LP's are known with blue labels and the old "SMO" number."  The change from the  old  logo  to  the  new  logo  happened  around catalog number 74 411. The EEC numbering began just after 74 490.

"EMI / Odeon" logo mark and "LC" mark  in black ink were printed at the top of the blue label.
"MADE IN GERMANY" and ST 33 in a oval for stereo edition were printed.

EMI/Odeon Blue label type-5:
The change to the blue label came during the second half of 1968, some months before  the  change to the EEC catalog numbers.
Several LP's are known with blue labels and the old "SMO" number."  The change from the  old  logo  to  the  new  logo  happened  around catalog number 74 411. The EEC numbering began just after 74 490.

"EMI / Odeon" logo mark and "LC" mark  in black ink were printed at the top of the blue label.
"MADE IN GERMANY" and ST 33 in a oval for stereo edition were printed.
"GEMA" logo (narrow type) was printed on both sides of the label.

"PRINTED IN GERMANY" was added at the right side of the back cover.

*The EEC numbering mean the country of release can been readily identified from the first two characters :
     1C = Germany
     2C = France
     3C = Italy
     4C = Belguim
     5C = Holland
     7C = Sweden
    10C = Spain
    11C = Portugal
    14C = Greece
Special note for Spain - "1J" instead of "10C" was used for several years (1969 to 1977, as from the "Get Back" single) to refer to records manufactured by EMI-Odeon in Spain, before the international "European codification". All references with "1J" were replaced by "10C" as from 1977.

* GEMA (Gesellschaft für musikalische Aufführungs- und mechanische Vervielfältigungsrechte.) was started in 1915 and handles the copyright in Germany.

(*)Grammoclub Ex Libris Club (Ex Libris Records):
Swiss record club, label, publisher, and stores. The label belongs to Migros (famous Swiss Supermarket chain). Their releases were never available from any supermarkets, but only to members of the fairly small Ex Libris club. The label was originally called "Grammoclub Ex Libris" (during the 50s and the 60s), but was shortened to Ex Libris towards the mid 60s. Only club members were allowed to buy from their shops. You've had to pay a fairly high fee in order to become a member of them, which is something that only a few wealthy elder people were able to do. In retrospect they mainly seem to have sold their records to some older folks, or to some family-people: They've usually bought Classical Music, Easy Listening, Jazz, Kiddie-Records, and the likes -- only few of their buyers would be interested in Rock 'N' Roll, or Beat back then, therefore only a few copies of their nowadays highly collectable releases by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Elvis Presley (Golden Boy LP) seem to have sold. Most of the young Swiss people would shop someplace else, because they could not afford to pay for the high membership fee in order to buy such a Rolling Stones LP or 45 from Ex Libris.

In early 1969, all new Beatles releases switched to the Apple label. By April, however, Germany had become part of the European Economic Community (EEC). From that point on, all records, new and re-release, would be issued with the new EEC numbering system. Most albums from Abbey Road on feature the new numbering.

This album has been direct metal mastered (DMM) from a digitally re-mastered original tape to give the best possible sound quality (maybe).
DMM, Direct Metal Mastering, is a cutting system that replaces the lacquer with a disc comprising high purity copper plating on a steel substrate.
