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.

COMMENTS
"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.
