"EMI / Odeon" logo mark and "LC" mark  in black ink were printed at the top of the blue label.
"MADE IN GERMANY" and ST 33 in a oval for stereo edition were printed.
"GEMA" logo (narrow type) was printed on both sides of the label.

Type-4: 062 with "LC" mark / ST 33 in a oval

The change to the blue label came during the second half of 1968, some months before  the  change to the EEC catalog numbers.
Several LP's are known with blue labels and the old "SMO" number."  The change from the  old  logo  to  the  new  logo  happened  around catalog number 74 411. The EEC numbering began just after 74 490.

"PRINTED IN GERMANY" was added at the right side of the back cover.

*The EEC numbering mean the country of release can been readily identified from the first two characters :
     1C = Germany
     2C = France
     3C = Italy
     4C = Belguim
     5C = Holland
     7C = Sweden
    10C = Spain
    11C = Portugal
    14C = Greece
Special note for Spain - "1J" instead of "10C" was used for several years (1969 to 1977, as from the "Get Back" single) to refer to records manufactured by EMI-Odeon in Spain, before the international "European codification". All references with "1J" were replaced by "10C" as from 1977.

* GEMA (Gesellschaft für musikalische Aufführungs- und mechanische Vervielfältigungsrechte.) was started in 1915 and handles the copyright in Germany.
