The company's name, "Toshiba Ongaku Kougyou Kabushiki - gaisya", was printed in Japanese at the lower-right place of the back cover. The song title of the 3rd track of side-1, "You really got a hold on me", was printed "You've really got a hold on me" by mistake on both the inside cover and the label. The company's name, "TOSHIBA MUSICAL INDUSTRIES", was printed at the bottom place of the label.

Unlike other Japanese pressing of the U.S. Beatles album, this album was created from the U.K. master tapes, so it is different than the original U.S. "Yesterday and Today".
