Japanese 1st. E.P.
Odeon label has "Odeon 33 Compact" across the top and "STEREO" across the middle of the label, and  all Odeon Compact 33's were issued in stereo (or simulated stereo).

"She Loves You", the original stereo master tape is widely believed to have been lost, since every release of the song has been in mono. How the stereo tape was lost has never been fully ascertained. Although the track has never been released in true stereo officially,which were released in "Duophonic" (Electronically Simulated Stereo).
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.

COMMENTS
Reissue of #1-9.
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.

Reissue of #2-9.
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.

COMMENTS
Reissue of #3-10.
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. When the record label change, the EMI/Odeon logo also replaced the Apple logo on the front sleeves of all records.

Reissue of #4-10.
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. 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.
