COMMENTS
Black Parlophone label with gold ink and "LONG PLAYING" curved across the top.
At the center of the label, the word "STEREO" on gold ribbon was printed.
The word "stereo", on upper right of the front cover, is large.
There is the words in the box --"IMPORTANT This record is intended for use only on special stereophonic reproducers. ..."-- on upper right of the back cover.
On 8th March, when George Martin typed up the running order sheet for "PLEASE PLEASE ME", he mistakenly credited 4 songs(*) as being published by the "Dick James Mus. Co."
This is the list that went to the printers, from which the first incorrect batch of labels was made, for both the mono and stereo pressings.
The Second pressing, the publishing credit had changed to "Northern Songs".

It is not known as it has been much made copies of the first stereo press, but all copies have only two variants of codes of a stamp: 1G/1R or 1R/1G. Therefore the total of copies of the first stereo press could not be more than 600.
Sleeves for Parlophone did two London’s of printing house: Ernest J. Day & Co Ltd. and Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. The first issue of "Please Please Me" has a sleeve made by Ernest J. Day & Co Ltd only.

This stereo versions of "Love Me Do" have been created from the mono versions, because original master tapes are lost.
The cover photo was taken at EMI's former headquarters at Manchester Sq. by Angus McBean on 5th March 1963.

After the test pressings were approved, and copies were run with the promo labels on them, the printer then loaded the machines with the proper labels for the disk's standard release. Then samples were taken from possibly each press machine making the records, and affixed with a sticker (red ink on white) and checked for quality. Except for the sticker, the disk is exactly as it will be when it is released.

COMMENTS
Black and yellow Parlophone label with silver print:
the name "THE PARLOPHONE CO. LTD. (capital letter)" on the outer rim, the "SOLD IN U.K." remark, and the "RECORDING FIRST PUBLISHED 1963" statement.

Beginning in 1964, Parlophone (and all the other EMI companies) began printing a phrase in the centers of all their singles, EP's and LP's, which said:

SOLD IN U.K. SUBJECT TO
RESALE PRICE CONDITIONS,
SEE PRICE LISTS.

This notice appears on the labels of every UK market EMI product, from very early 1964, right through mid-1969.

Sleeves for Parlophone did two London’s of printing house: Ernest J. Day & Co Ltd. and Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. The 6th. pressing has a sleeve made by Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. only (maybe).
The word "stereo", on upper right of the front cover, is Middle size.

With NEM'S store retail bag at the Liverpool, Whitechapel.

the name "THE GRAMOPHONE CO. LTD. (capital letter)" on the outer rim, the "SOLD IN U.K." remark, and the "(P) 1963" statement.

On 1st July 1965, EMI underwent a merger and each individual ceased to be a L.T.D. company and became a subsudialy of "The Gramophone Co. Ltd." which was owned by EMI. This merger meant yet another label change occurred and previous "Parlophone Co. Ltd." rims where replaced with the new "Gramophone" rims.

Sleeves for Parlophone did two London’s of printing house: Ernest J. Day & Co Ltd. and Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. The 7th. pressing has a sleeve made by Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. only (maybe).
The word "stereo", on upper right of the front cover, is small.

COMMENTS
Black and Yellow Parlophone label with silver print:
the name "THE GRAMOPHONE CO. LTD.(capital letter)" on the outer rim, the "SOLD IN U.K." remark, and the "(P) 1963" statement.

Beginning in 1964, Parlophone (and all the other EMI companies) began printing a phrase in the centers of all their singles, EP's and LP's, which said:

SOLD IN U.K. SUBJECT TO
RESALE PRICE CONDITIONS,
SEE PRICE LISTS.

This notice appears on the labels of every UK market EMI product, from very early 1964, right through mid-1969.

On 1st July 1965, EMI underwent a merger and each individual ceased to be a L.T.D. company and became a subsudialy of "The Gramophone Co. Ltd." which was owned by EMI. This merger meant yet another label change occurred and previous "Parlophone Co. Ltd." rims where replaced with the new "Gramophone" rims.

The word "stereo", on upper right of the front cover, is small-size.
Sleeves for "With The Beatles (stereo)" did two London’s of printing house: Ernest J. Day & Co Ltd. and Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. "Small Steleo" issue has a sleeve made by "Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd." only (maybe).
There is the words in the box --"IMPORTANT This record is intended for use only on special stereophonic reproducers. ..."-- on upper right of the back cover.

Side 1: labeling is incorrectly credit track 6 as  "Wilson".
Side 2 labeling is corrected: Track 3 now spelled "YOU REALLY GOT A HOLD ON ME".
But, Sleeve incorrectly spells track 3 as "YOU REALLY GOTTA HOLD ON ME".
The publishing credit for "Money" says "Dominion, Belinda (Ldn.) Ltd."

Emerald Music was formed in 1964 and from the beginning had its roots in Irish Music, later expanding to cover a range of Scottish music, including some of Scotland's greatest Pipe Bands.
The company founder was Mervyn Solomon, who was also the man who first recorded Rory Gallagher and Van Morrison. In those days, Van was fronting his own R & B group called "Them".
Other local artists who went on to make a name for themselves included Jim Armstrong, guitarist - who also played with Them, and John Wilson who played with Them and Rory Gallagher. The John Anderson Big Band has also come through the Emerald "School". John's big band was the backbone of the Jive Bunny hits!!
Of course in recent years we have had great success with Celtic Pride, a dance duo who has put a whole new dimension to Irish music and brought it to a new younger audience.
With the combination of a vast back catalogue of music, and the new more contemporary recordings, the Emerald catalogue boasts to be one of the most comprehensive Irish and Scottish record labels.

COMMENTS
Black and White Parlophone label with silver print:
with two "EMI" marks, placed at the top and bottom, which are white with black print (reversed).
The company's name "THE GRAMOPHONE CO LTD" was printed on the outer rim and "(P) 1963" statement was printed on the label.

Housed in a scarce front laminated, twin-flipback "Garrod & Lofthouse" printed cover without a stereo front indicator with "Patent No. 943,895" printed along the lower flipback.
As sales of mono albums had dropped significantly relative to stereo albums, EMI deleted mono records, where there was a stereo alternative, in mid-1969.
So, the word "stereo", on upper right of the front cover, is erased. (maybe)
