Green label and Odeon logo mark in white was printed above the center hole.
"MADE IN GERMANY (circuler)" and 45 in a triangle were printed at the bottom of the label.

In fall (maybe August), 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
Roughly speaking, this translates to:
"Copyright and property rights, especially reproduction (except for personal use), rental,
performance, and broadcasting, [are] reserved."
Again for the benefit of those who do not read German, We will call this the "Urheber" issue.
Singles made from 1967 to 1969 are of the "Urheber" label style.

COMMENTS
Green label and Odeon logo mark in white was printed above the center hole.
"MADE IN GERMANY (circuler)" and 45 in a triangle were printed at the bottom of the label.

In fall (maybe August), 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
Roughly speaking, this translates to:
"Copyright and property rights, especially reproduction (except for personal use), rental,
performance, and broadcasting, [are] reserved."
Again for the benefit of those who do not read German, We will call this the "Urheber" issue.
Singles made from 1967 to 1969 are of the "Urheber" label style.

White-label demos are dated 6 July 1967 meaning official release was a few weeks later.
