COMMENTS
Toshiba released the first Japanese record featuring the Beatles by name as a group: "I Want To Hold Your Hand/This Boy (OR-1041)".
When this record was released in 1964, Toshiba's official name was "Toshiba Musical Industries Ltd." and they used the Odeon label for this and subsequent Beatles releases.
The LPs, singles and EPs were initially released on both red and black vinyl, with the red variants reportedly offering particularly good sound quality. They are particularly sought-after by audiophiles, and are considerably rarer than the black vinyl versions - red vinyl signifies first pressings of a release.
Nearly all of the Japanese Beatles singles were issued with "bifold" picture lyric sheet and company inner sleeve.

"Please please me" has a lower catalog number and was scheduled to be the first Odeon Beatles single.
However, "I want to hold your hand" was rush released to the market first.
