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).

COMMENTS

This single was made in 1965 for export only.
The single looked like a normal Parlophone 45 disc, 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.

COMMENTS
This single was made in 1965 for export only.
The single looked like a normal Parlophone 45 disc, 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.

The second label was with capitalized printing of "THE GRAMOPHONE CO. LTD." at the perimeter, and a smaller Parlophone logo.
Without the central remark "SOLD IN UK..."
Has the "(P) 1965" statement.

On 1st. July 1965, EMI underwent a merger and each individual ceased to be a L.T.D. company and became a Subsidiary of "The Gramophone Co. Ltd." which was owned by EMI. This merger meant yet another label change occurred and previous "Parlophone Co. Ltd." rims where replaced with the new "Gramophone" rims. The new label didn't actually come into use until October 1965 but EMI continued to use up the old Parlophone labels, which explains why first pressing still feature labels with the "Parlophone" rims.

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.

COMMENTS

This single was made in 1968 for export.
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.

This 1968 single was pressed in the UK for export only on the black and silver Parlophone label - in the UK itself 'Hey Jude' appeared as the band's first single release on the newly-formed Apple label. Apart from the type of catalogue number used (DP570) the label is identical in every respect to other UK Parlophone pressings of the time with 'The Gramophone Co. Ltd.' perimeter text, right down to a 'KT' tax code on the intact push-out centre.

The picture sleeve features a colour photograph of the band taken during the filming of the 'Paperback Writer' and 'Rain' promo films at Abbey Road in May 1966, with a psychedelic-style orange logo above and a Swedish language article on the band printed on the reverse. 

There are two kind of sleeves;
Type-1: the sleeve pockets for the records opened at the side and there is no photo on back.
Type-2: issued with a straight cut across the top of sleeve and the same design on both side.
