Export Edition #1
CPCS (P-CPCS) Series
(Update: 28th. March 2017)
Beginning in 1965, Parlophone began to press and distribute to other countries copies of LP's that were not available in that form in England. These included Parlophone pressings of several US Capitol albums, a Parlophone issue of The Beatles (for certain countries that had not yet accepted the Apple label), and a Parlophone-covered issue of Let It Be.
The series prefix "CPCS" was used for US-based albums, with the leading "C" standing for "Capitol." For the other export LP's, a leading "P" for "Parlophone" was used, along with the usual British catalog number.
Labels for the export series resembled their UK counterparts, except for the "Sold in UK" print, which naturally did not appear on albums pressed for export.

The Beatles united for a final photographic session on 22 August 1969. It was also the last occasion in which all four members were together for band duties; thereafter their only meetings were business-related.
The shoot took place in the house and grounds of Tittenhurst Park, John Lennon and Yoko Ono's home in Sunninghill near Ascot, Berkshire. The couple had moved in earlier in the month, although they had bought the 72-acre estate in May 1969.
The photo shoot took place two days after their final recording session together. The photographers were Ethan Russell and Monte Fresco, with additional pictures taken by The Beatles' assistant Mal Evans.
