This is a very mysterious reference which is now run many collectors. This is a particular draw inch 33 rpm French original "Rubber Soul" (Odeon OSX 232), as evidenced by the words "HS" (probably up for "Special Edition"), which is also found on labels double EP "Magical Mystery Tour" (MOE HS 39501/2). the content of the OSX HS 24001 is found to be almost identical to that of the OSX 232. Only changed the Odeon logo (replaced by Odéon- EMI) and the color of the label (orange in the OSX 232 blue at the HS 24 001).
Several other elements allow us to better characterize this disc:
- A reference to "20,000" , synonymous (at Odeon) destination for exports. Unfortunately it is impossible in the present state of our knowledge, identify the recipient country (s). Belgium has initially been assumed, but this idea was eventually abandoned to the extent that our inch 33 rpm is not found in the same way as the EP's Flight.
- 1-4 EOM series Specialists today for a lean Francophone African countries without further details at this time;
Different numbers of those matrix of OSX 232 : 579/580 XEX (taking the English matrix) instead of XAR 819/820 visit OSX 232; - M6 245067/8 code (engraved in vinyl to the opposite of the matrix number) that is not on OSX 232; - the words "the Musical Industries and Electrical Pathé Marconi Paris" that appears at the back cover and which is found in 1966, all discs of LSO series;
- The word "Standard" , which is also a price code reference. There were thus two phrases: "Medium" and "Luxury".
The sheet production OSX HS 24001, published in the book France and the Beatles - the original 1962/1970 discography (Hocquet AD Krasker E.) reveal very important information: the a date is buffered in red indicates that the manufacturing process began on 02/12/1965. Everything leads us to believe that the production of 24 001 HS OSX and OSX 232 took place simultaneously. Date of legal deposit of 232 is the OSX 12/21/1965. That of the 24 001 HS is probably occurred in late December 1965 / early January 1966.
Some research shows that his is a French pressing, intended for the French African market. (ex. Libya)
