    COMMENTS
    Promotional Record.
    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. When the record label change, the EMI/Odeon logo also replaced the Apple logo on the front sleeves of all records.

    The promo label coloring of EMI/Odeon EP is essentially the inverse of the commercial version. That is, the black print and white background of the promo version is the "negative" of the commercial version that has the same design but uses light print on a black background.
    The promo version lacks the perimeter print of the commercial version. And of course promo characters and release date do not appear on the commercial version.
