Contract pressing for Northern Ireland was manufactured by Emerald Records. Emerald, a subsidiary of Vogue Records in Belfast, Northern Ireland. This is confirmed by machine stamp of the manufacturer’s name on both side of the label. This pressing has standard British matrix numbers:

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.
