Dark Green Apple label.
In 1969, Toshiba had to reissue on the Apple label all the records previously issued on the Odeon label and released the new single on the Apple 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.
This single was manufactured two ways: both Black and Red vinyl.
