COMMENTS
First Press: Orange and yellow swirl label without "subsidary" print.
The picture sleeve is one of two Capitol Beatles sleeves from the sixties that has different photographs of the group on each side.
The "Eight Days A Week" side features a color photograph of The Beatles 20th. August 1964, concert at the Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada, where the picture used on the "I Feel Fine" picure sleeve was also taken.
The color portrait on the "I Don't Want To Spoil The Party" side was taken backstage prior to the Las Vegas show.

Nearly all of the Capitol Beatles' records were pressed by Capitol on both the East Coast and the West Coast.
1) East Coast singles pressed with labels printed by Keystone Printed Specialities Co., Inc. of Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Picture sleeve: issued in straight cut top.
2) West Coast singles pressed with labels printed by Bert-Co Enterprises of Los Angeles, California.
Picture sleeve: issued tub cut.
Some 3 5/8" West Coast Bert-Co labels were mistakenly used when later copies of the single were pressed in late 1968. By that time, Capitol had switched to "non-slip" discs, which had 360 interrocking notches surrounding the label area, thus requiring smaller 3 5/16" labels. When the old larger labels were used, the outer rims of the labels were pressed over the raised serrations.

COMMENTS
First Press: Orange and yellow swirl label without "subsidary" print.

The picture sleeve features a portrait of the band in dark suits taken at the Prince Of Wales Theatre in London on 31th. May 1964.
The sleeve has a yellowish-tan background with "the BEATLES" in white at the top.
Below the group's name, the song titles appear in black on the left side and the Capitol logo and catalogue number 5407 in red to the right.

All label variations mistakenly state that the songs are "From United Artists Release "Eight Arms To Hold You"".

1) East Coast singles pressed with labels printed by Keystone Printed Specialities Co., Inc. of Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Picture sleeve: issued in straight cut top.
"PRINTED IN U.S.A." in black running vertically along the lower left side of the "Ticket To Ride" open side of the sleeve.
2) West Coast singles pressed with labels printed by Bert-Co Enterprises of Los Angeles, California.
Picture sleeve: issued tub cut.
Label: There is a third variation with thin, tall letters. The labels and records were prepared by RCA Custom in Rockaway, New Jersey.

COMMENTS
First Press: Orange and yellow swirl label without "subsidary" print.
The picture sleeve for the Capitol single features a cropped version of the Robert Freeman color photograph that sarved as the cover for the U.K. album "Beatles For Sale". The picture was taken during an autumn afternoon photo session in Hyde Park.
The upper box of the sleeve has an orange background with "THE BEATLES" in white and both song titles, catalogue number 5555 and the Capitol logo in yellow.
"We Can Work It Out" is listed above "Day Tripper" on both sides of the sleeve.

The initial pressings of the record were manufactured with labels printed prior to Capitol knowing the running time of the songs. Thus, these labels do not contain the time of songs. Later pressings of the record contain the running time.

Nearly all of the Capitol Beatles' records were pressed by Capitol on both the East Coast and the West Coast.
1) East Coast singles pressed with labels printed by Keystone Printed Specialities Co., Inc. of Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Picture sleeve: issued in straight cut top.
"PRINTED IN U.S.A." in black in the lower right corner of the open side of the sleeve.
Label: First Press=Without runnning time / later press has runnning time.
2) West Coast singles pressed with labels printed by Bert-Co Enterprises of Los Angeles, California.
Picture sleeve: issued tub cut.
Label: First Press=Without runnning time / later press has runnning time.

3) Jacksonville Pressings: In 1969, Capitol's Jacksonville, Illinois, factory mistakenly pressed a very limited run of the single with the red and white circle star line label.

First Press: Orange and yellow swirl label without "subsidary" print.
The picture sleeve for the Capitol single features a cropped version of the Robert Freeman color photograph that sarved as the cover for the U.K. album "Beatles For Sale". The picture was taken during an autumn afternoon photo session in Hyde Park.
The upper box of the sleeve has an orange background with "THE BEATLES" in white and both song titles, catalogue number 5555 and the Capitol logo in yellow.
"We Can Work It Out" is listed above "Day Tripper" on both sides of the sleeve.

The initial pressings of the record were manufactured with labels printed prior to Capitol knowing the running time of the songs. Thus, these labels do not contain the time of songs. Later pressings of the record contain the running time.

Nearly all of the Capitol Beatles' records were pressed by Capitol on both the East Coast and the West Coast.
1) East Coast singles pressed with labels printed by Keystone Printed Specialities Co., Inc. of Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Picture sleeve: issued in straight cut top.
"PRINTED IN U.S.A." in black in the lower right corner of the open side of the sleeve.
Label: First Press=Without runnning time / later press has runnning time.
2) West Coast singles pressed with labels printed by Bert-Co Enterprises of Los Angeles, California.
Picture sleeve: issued tub cut.
Label: First Press=Without runnning time / later press has runnning time.

3) Jacksonville Pressings: In 1969, Capitol's Jacksonville, Illinois, factory mistakenly pressed a very limited run of the single with the red and white circle star line label.
