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) 1966" statement.

Sleeves for "Revolver (stereo)" did two London’s of printing house: Ernest J. Day & Co Ltd. and Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. This issue has a sleeve made by Garrod & Lofthouse.
Some of copies can be found with "stereo" embossed in black in the upper right hand corner of the front cover.

The mono and stereo releases were issued in separate catalog number series until early 1966. In 1966, the catalog number series was restarted at 7001 with mono and stereo releases now having the same catalog numbers.  

Early labels misprint the side 2 track Doctor Robert as "Dr. Robert".
The "Dr. Robert" error on side 2 has been corrected, now correctly reading "Doctor Robert". This probably occurred within a short time after the LP was first released.

First label  has Sans-serif print and song name “DR. ROBERT” on the Side 2.

"Columbia" label pressing.
This pressing is found in two variations.
The first variation has the Columbia logo on the side 1 and Parlophone logo on the side 2. The second variation has Parlophone logo on the side 1 and a Columbia logo on side 2 (=this record).

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 "EMI RECORDS LTD." and the word "MADE IN GT. BRITAIN" were printed on the outer rim.

With a "FACTORY SAMPLE" sticker on the back cover.
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.

The mono and stereo releases were issued in separate catalog number series until early 1966. In 1966, the catalog number series was restarted at 7001 with mono and stereo releases now having the same catalog numbers.  

About the song title of the 4th song on side-1, this label was printed "love You Too" instead of "Love You To", however, the title on the album cover still remained.

The LP covers is laminated on both front and back, and is also laminated fully on the inside. The cover was one piece of material, with fold over flaps connecting across the top-inside cover.
The gatefold has two openings, the left one holding a sheet of Sgt. Pepper cutouts, and the right one holding the LP itself.
The first pressing of the album came with a psychedelic inner sleeve designed by a Dutch group, "The Fool," who also painted the side of the Apple Corps building, as well as John Lennon's limousine.
There are two versions of the cover, one with "wide" spine and a more common version with "thin" spine.
This copie is "wide" spine.

These copies mistitled the track "With a little help from..." as "A little help from..." on back cover.

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
Parlophone resumed production LPs in 1976. The start of the perimeter print was changed to “EMI RECORDS LTD…”. The text “GT. BRITAIN” was removed from the label. Instead, added “MADE IN GT. BRITAIN” text at the end of the perimeter print. This label used between summer 1976 and october 1980. To do this, EMI make new laqueurs at Abbey Road Studios. All albums were cut by Harry T. Moss. Therefore, the trail off area has its initials HTM. EMI reissued 13 Beatles stereo albums as a box set (Parlophone BC 13, in blue box) December 15, 1978.
Parlophone temporarily ceased to release LPs in 1973 because of the oil crisis began. LPs production was moved to France for some time.
At some point in the mid-1970s the EMI pressing plant at Hayes (just outside London) was closed for refurbishment and EMI contracted their Pathé Marconi subsidiary in France to press LP's for a short time. These LP's were then put into U.K. sleeves and sold in the U.K.
The phrase "MADE IN FRANCE" were printed on the outer rim on the label.

The LP covers is laminated on both front and back, and is also laminated fully on the inside. The cover was one piece of material, with fold over flaps connecting across the top-inside cover. But the flaps inside of the gatefold are invisible, as they were glued on the inside.
Some covers also have a sticker on the front indicating that the record was "Made In France".

These copies mistitled the track "With a little help from..." as "A little help from..." on back cover.
