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.
