On 1st July 1965, EMI merged all its roster labels into one parent company, the "Gramophone Company Ltd." and the small "rights of the manufacturer" statement around the outside edge of the label, began with the new company name instead of "The Parlophone Co. Ltd.".
This changeover wasn't immediate, so some copies exist with different statements printed on either side of the record.
Black label with silver print. The publishing year is printed on the label, as “(p) 1965″. The beginning of the perimeter print has “THE GRAMOPHONE CO. LTD.” and “SOLD IN U.K. SUBJECT TO RESALE PRICE CONDITIONS, SEE PRICE LISTS” text.
2nd pressing with so-called type 1 labels.
Matrix # slightly shifted to the left compared to The Beatles - We Can Work It Out / Day Tripper
A slightly later pressing perhaps but not a re-issue.
