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.

Original and rare RCA Contract (*) Capitol U.S. 45 with Capitol Co. Sleeve by The Beatles. Due to high demand of this record, Capitol contracted with competitor RCA to press additional copies. This one has an "R" for Rockaway, New Jersey (Near Thomas Edison's laboratory).

(*)RCA Pressing plant in Rockaway, NJ which opened in or around mid-1954 and closed in early 1973.
A major pressing and distribution facility for RCA.

Identifying vinyl which was pressed at this plant can usually be achieved by
locating a small machine stamped "R" in the runout areas on the disc. It will
often be positioned well away from the matrix stamping.
Sometimes "RC" will appear stamped or etched.

RCA Pressing Plant indicators (STAMPED)
> R- denotes a pressing from Rockaway (this profile)
> H- denotes a pressing from RCA Records Pressing Plant, Hollywood
> I- denotes a pressing from RCA Records Pressing Plant, Indianapolis

Known to have pressed for Columbia Records, as well as many other
major and independent record labels.
The first alpha in runouts (for all plants) indicates year of mastering (between 1960 and 1977): L=60, M=61, N=62, P=63, R=64, S=65, T=66, U=67, W=68, X=69, Z=70, A=71, B=72, C=73, D=74, E=75, F=76, G=77.
