COMMENTS
This genuine EMI Factory Sample copy of  "Strawberry Fields Forever / Penny Lane" was sent to BBC broadcaster/DJ Geoffrey Wheeler as a promo just prior to the disc's release in February 1967.

No red & white demos of this 45 were produced so this early copy is on the black & silver Parlophone label: R 5570

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. Except for the sticker, the disk is exactly as it will be when it is released.

The first label was with capitalized printing of "THE GRAMOPHONE CO. LTD." at the perimeter, and a smaller Parlophone logo.
It has the central remark "SOLD IN UK...", and the "(P) 1967" statement.

COMMENTS
Lime-green label with black ink and, on the A-side, a large white "A" over the face of the label.
  • "The Gramophone Co. Ltd. (small letter)" on its outer rim.
  • "DEMONSTRATION RECORD" and "NOT FOR SALE" were printed at the bellow of the Parlohone logo.

Made for both radio and for the record shops, all U.K. Parlophone and Apple 7" Beatles singles had promotional Records.
A Promo is always a copy of the exact performance and mix that is to be sold in the record shops. It is pressed from the very same plates used to make the commercially-available 45rpm singles.

The first 12 Beatles singles, from "Love Me Do" trough "Paperback Writer"(*)  all had promo's on white-label disks with black ink and, on the Aside, a large red "A" over the face of the label. Records like "Day tripper/We Can Work It Out", issued as double-A-sided disks, had the red "A" on both sides of the record label.

* excepted for "She Loves You, Can't Buy Me Love, I Feel Fine, and Help!"
EMI did not prepare a demonstration record for these records.

Beginning with "All You Need Is Love (**)", Promo's were made with a lime-green background and a White "A" on the intended Aside These lime -green promo's had slightly-smaller labels, so the labels fit within the circle of ridges surrounding the label area, instead of overlapping onto them, as the previous promo's did.

**  EMI did not prepare a demonstration record for "Strawberry Fields Forever"

"The only difference on any of the labels was that one first pressing of "All You Need Is Love" did not mention the worldwide TV broadcast, while those made at the same time or right after it, said "Recorded during 'Live' World Television Transmission". Disks without that notice are a bit rarer."
It is generally said, but after compared matrix no., the notice  can be seen on the discs with matrix suffixed-1/1, and the other hand, no credit on the discs with matrix suffixed-2/2.

The "Sold in U.K." text has gone from the label.
Beginning in 1964, Parlophone (and all the other EMI companies) began printing a phrase in the centers of all their singles, EP's and LP's, which said:

SOLD IN U.K. SUBJECT TO
RESALE PRICE CONDITIONS,
SEE PRICE LISTS.

This notice appears on the labels of every UK market EMI product, from very early 1964, right through mid-1969.

Notice: can be seen on the discs with matrix suffixed-1 / 2.

COMMENTS
Lime-green label with black ink and, on the A-side, a large white "A" over the face of the label.
  • "The Gramophone Co. Ltd. (small letter)" on its outer rim.
  • "DEMONSTRATION RECORD" and "NOT FOR SALE" were printed at the bellow of the Parlohone logo.

Made for both radio and for the record shops, all U.K. Parlophone and Apple 7" Beatles singles had promotional Records.
A Promo is always a copy of the exact performance and mix that is to be sold in the record shops. It is pressed from the very same plates used to make the commercially-available 45rpm singles.

The first 12 Beatles singles, from "Love Me Do" trough "Paperback Writer"(*)  all had promo's on white-label disks with black ink and, on the Aside, a large red "A" over the face of the label. Records like "Day tripper/We Can Work It Out", issued as double-A-sided disks, had the red "A" on both sides of the record label.

* excepted for "She Loves You, Can't Buy Me Love, I Feel Fine, and Help!"
EMI did not prepare a demonstration record for these records.

Beginning with "All You Need Is Love (**)", Promo's were made with a lime-green background and a White "A" on the intended Aside These lime -green promo's had slightly-smaller labels, so the labels fit within the circle of ridges surrounding the label area, instead of overlapping onto them, as the previous promo's did.

**  EMI did not prepare a demonstration record for "Strawberry Fields Forever"

COMMENTS
Decca contract pressing: The label, there are two typesetting variations.

Back in the 60's EMI had a limited record pressing power, and the Beatles were so popular that they simply could not cope with the demand that the fans were putting on them to get the copies out and into the shops. Purchases meant profit, and fans having to wait for EMI to catch up with demand meant a loss of earnings. Because of this, EMI decided to approach rival production companies with batch orders for them to press to help keep on top of things.

Decca were also the only company that also helped with the production of the Beatles' first two albums.

COMMENTS
In 1967 a small number of copies of 'Hello Goodbye' appeared which featured a 'Made in France' credit rather than the standard 'Made in Gt. Britain'. It transpired that EMI contracted the Path´ Marconi plant in France to press a small run of copies to be sent back into the UK and sold. There are two possible reasons why this happened - the first could be that as usual demand was overwhelming, and since Oriole had since been sold to CBS only Decca was initially available to help them out. However, because this was insufficient EMI sub-contracted their French plant to help keep on top of things. Another reason could be because there was currently an oil crisis going in that meant that the production of vinyl became incredibly expensive in the UK, and so EMI asked France to press a small run to help keep costs down. Maybe it was even a tax thing? Regardless of the reason the French copies of Hello Goodbye are today quite hard to find.
(According to "TheBeatlesCollection")

The French contract pressings were manufactured two ways: both with and without the push-out center.

Lady Madonna, The Beatles' first release of 1968, was a bluesy number written by Paul McCartney, and recorded just prior to the group's trip to India to study meditation with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
It was also their final release on Parlophone/Capitol. From Hey Jude onwards, The Beatles released all their subsequent singles and albums on their own Apple Records label.
The Inner Light was written by George Harrison and first released as the b-side of Lady Madonna, with lyrics based on the Taoist guide to living Tao Te Ching.
It entered the charts at number five on 20 March, and a week later climbed to the top. It remained there for a second week, and spent eight weeks altogether in the chart. In the US it was released on 18 March. It fared less well, peaking at number four on 23 March.

COMMENTS
Lime-green label with black ink and, on the A-side, a large white "A" over the face of the label.
  • "The Gramophone Co. Ltd. (small letter)" on its outer rim.
  • "DEMONSTRATION RECORD" and "NOT FOR SALE" were printed at the bellow of the Parlohone logo.

Made for both radio and for the record shops, all U.K. Parlophone and Apple 7" Beatles singles had promotional Records.
A Promo is always a copy of the exact performance and mix that is to be sold in the record shops. It is pressed from the very same plates used to make the commercially-available 45rpm singles.

The first 12 Beatles singles, from "Love Me Do" trough "Paperback Writer"(*)  all had promo's on white-label disks with black ink and, on the Aside, a large red "A" over the face of the label. Records like "Day tripper/We Can Work It Out", issued as double-A-sided disks, had the red "A" on both sides of the record label.

* excepted for "She Loves You, Can't Buy Me Love, I Feel Fine, and Help!"
EMI did not prepare a demonstration record for these records.

Beginning with "All You Need Is Love (**)", Promo's were made with a lime-green background and a White "A" on the intended Aside These lime -green promo's had slightly-smaller labels, so the labels fit within the circle of ridges surrounding the label area, instead of overlapping onto them, as the previous promo's did.

**  EMI did not prepare a demonstration record for "Strawberry Fields Forever"

The "Sold in U.K." text has gone from the label.
Beginning in 1964, Parlophone (and all the other EMI companies) began printing a phrase in the centers of all their singles, EP's and LP's, which said:

SOLD IN U.K. SUBJECT TO
RESALE PRICE CONDITIONS,
SEE PRICE LISTS.

This notice appears on the labels of every UK market EMI product, from very early 1964, right through mid-1969.
