    Reissue of #12-4.
    Light green apple label.
    In 1969, Toshiba had to reissue on the Apple label all the records previously issued on the Odeon label. And in the Apple label, there are two subtypes, TOSHIBA MUSICAL INDUSTRIES and TOSHIBA EMI. Further more, the early copies of the APPLE-TOSHIBA MUSICAL INDUSTRIES type have dark Apple on its label, though the late copies have light one.
    Toshiba EMI made duophonic mixes for the nine songs that had no stereo masters at the time the EPs were compiled.
    "I Want To Hold Your Hand", "She Loves You", "Long Tall Sally", Match Box", "Slow Down", "Sie Liebt Dich", "Paperback Writer", "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "Penny Lane"  are effective simulated stereo mixes.
    This E.P. was manufactured two ways: both Black and Red vinyl (maybe).

    COMMENTS
    Reissue of #12-7
    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.
    Toshiba EMI made duophonic mixes for the nine songs that had no stereo masters at the time the EPs were compiled.
    "I Want To Hold Your Hand", "She Loves You", "Long Tall Sally", Match Box", "Slow Down", "Sie Liebt Dich", "Paperback Writer", "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "Penny Lane"  are effective simulated stereo mixes.
