COMMENTS

This single was made in 1966 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.

Two Belgian Beatles pressings, "Yesterday" / "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" and "Michelle" / "Drive My Car" carry the "DP" prefix. This was used exclusively for records destined for export. They were sometimes actually pressed in the UK on the English Parlophone label and then sold in another country. Sometimes they were pressed abroad with the DP prefix on the country's own Parlophone label.
