COMMENTS

This single was made in 1964 for export only.
The single looked like a normal Parlophone 45 disk, with one exception: the statement, "SOLD IN U.K. SUBJECT TO RELEASE PRICE CONDITIONS. SEE PRICE LIST", does not appear on the label, because they were not to be sold in England.

If you have a copy of If I Fell/Tell Me Why which does have the "SOLD IN U.K." statement on it, it's not an export copy. It's one of the limited edition (domestic) copies of the single issued in the U.K. in early 1965 (with the same catalog number, DP 562).




#1-2 If I Fell / Tell Me Why (Domestic Released / with SOLD IN U.K.: DP 562)
 Back to the top of the line
A rare U.K. single, with "Tell Me Why" on the side-2, was pressed in the U.K. by EMI and released on 16th. October 1964. It was made for export purposes, but a number of record dealers began shipping the disks back into the U.K. for resale. Then EMI were not keen to see one of their products sold for more than the standard price, so, they started to press a small quantity for sale in Britain. These copies had the words, "SOLD IN U.K. SUBJECT TO RESALE PRICE CONDITIONS. SEE PRICE LISTS(*)" stamped on them. A few hundred copies were released in the U.K. on 29th. January 1965. The catalogue number was Parlophone DP 562. mono
