COMMENTS
Odeon Green Label type-1.
"GEMA" logo was printed on both sides of the label.

The Odeon green label EP's appear in two different styles. The first of these styles features the following print around the rim of the label:

ALLE HERSTELLER. UND URHEBERRECHTE VORBEHALTEN
ÜBERSPIELUNG
ÖFFENTLICHE AUFFÜHRUNG UND RUNDFUNKSENDUNG UNTERSAGT

Records with "Alle" as the first word of the rim print were issued by German Odeon until mid-1966. EP's from 1964-1967 normally feature an LP-size label. Since this label is "too large" for the space alloted to it on a 45, the label is glued over the top of the EP's "ridges". Earlier EP's are found in mono. Later EP's appear in stereo, with "STEREO" in black on a white rectangle.

The second label style, in mid-1966, the rim print was changed on all Odeon releases to read:
URHEBER. UND LEISTUNGSSCHUTZRECHTE, BESONDERS VERVIELFÄLTIGUNG (AUSSER ZUM PERSONLICHEN GEBRAUCH), VERMIETUNG. AUFFÜHRUNG, SENDUNG, VORBEHALTEN
The only EP to have come out originally in the Urheber style is Magical Mystery Tour. The word "stereo" on this EP is not found on a white rectangle.
