    Reissue of #2-10.
    The 3rd. label change was the expiration of Toshiba's contract with Apple, resulting in the discontinuance of  the Apple label.
    Toshiba had already begun use of the new EMI/Odeon label as early as 1976 on certain new releases not covered under the Apple label. By the early 1980's, the EMI/Odeon label had completely supplanted the Apple label on all Beatles releases.
