COMMENTS
The single was masterd at Bell Sound in New York by Sam Feldman. The trail off areas of the single have hand etched master numbers, a machine stamped Bell sound logo, Sam Feldman's hand etched "sf" initials, and a script "Phil + Ronnie".
The last etching is producer Phil Spector's tribute to his wife Ronnie.

The design of the picture sleeve issued with the record is similar to the sleeve for the "Let It Be" single; however, it features a different picture of each Beatle and has a white rather than black background.

The sleeves have "Manufactured by Apple Records, Inc. 1700 Broadway, New York, N. Y. 10019 an abkco managed company" in small letters on the open side.

The East Coast Queens Litho-produced sleeves have a straight cut top. (=this record)
The significantly rarer West Coast sleeves were manufactured by Bert-Co and have a tub cut on the "For You Blue" side.

There are four variations of the single. The first three are the first pressings.

1)The Los Angeles press: (=this record)
> Has the song title and songwriters credit below the center hole
> The group's name to the upper left of the center
> "(From The Beatles Motion Picture "Let It Be") to the lower left center hole on the A side.
> The B side has the song title and songwriters credit in the lower left part of the apple
> Both sides have publishing information, time, record and master numbers and "Reproduced for disc by PHIL SPECTOR - Record first published: 1970" to the right of the center hole.
> These Los Angeles discs were first pressed with glossy light apple labels with Capitol logo perimeter print. Later pressings have light apple labels with Apple perimeter print on the A side.

2) The Scranton and Non-Capitol East Coast press:
> Has the song title and songwriters credt in the upper left part of the apple
> group's name below the center hole (in the lower right part of the apple on B side
> the film reference in the lower left part of the apple.
> These Scranton and Non-Capitol East Coast discs were first pressed with glossy dark apple labels  and  Apple perimeter print on the B side.

3) The Jacksonville press:
> Has the song titles in small print and the group's name in micro print.
> The song title and songwriter's credit runs along the top of the apple on the A side and in the upper left part of the apple on the B side.
> Both sides have the group's name below the center hole
> the film reference to the left of the center.
> The "(J.Lennon-P. McCartney)" credit on the A side is too close to the top of the center hole, which cuts though the credit on many copies of the disc.
> These jacksonville pressings have glossy dark green apple labels with Apple perimeter print on the B side.

4) corrected Jacksonville press:
> similar to the 3rd. version, but with minor differences. To correct the problem of having songwriter's credit on the A side obliterated by the center hole, "J. Lennon-P. McCartney" are separated by an inch of of space.
> In addition, the film reference is shifted from middle left of the apple to the lower left.
> On the B side, the song title is on three lines rather than one.
> These correct jacksonville pressings have glossy dark green apple labels. The first labels of this variation have Apple perimeter print on the B side, while later pressings have Apple perimeter print on the A side.
