Light green Apple label Type-2-1with black print.

In late (September?)1969, Toshiba had to reissue on the Apple label all the records previously issued on the Odeon label.
And in the Apple label, there are two subtypes, TOSHIBA MUSIC and TOSHIBA EMI. Further more, the early copies of the APPLE-TOSHIBA MUSIC type have dark Apple on its label, though the late copies have light one.

The Japanese version looks similar to the U.S. "Beatles' 65" version but has a different track listing, and a different back cover.

The Cover Jacket has been changed from a thin sleeve to a sleeve made of thick paper, because it uses thick paper, it is an inner binding type with the glue margin inside.

The obi: "Forever" Obi
This style Obi came into use in the late (October?) 1972 to promote all Beatles releases then currently on the Apple label. The tagline "Beatles Forever" used in Toshiba Onko's campaign began to be used around 1972.
It is a wide Obi characterized by the Apple logo at the top, the words "The Beatles Forever" at the bottom, and has a dark green background.
This is the first obi that was released with the same design.Forever obi was used in the early 70's, and used for the Beatles, solos, and Apple artist LPs.

On 1st October 1973, Toshiba Musical Industries Ltd. was changed its name to Toshiba EMI Ltd. So, there were two kind of Obis --the company name is "Tohiba Musical..." version and "Toshiba EMI..." version.
The order sheet was printed for the first Apple Obi but was discontinued in the early years of the Toshiba EMI/Apple Obi (maybe 1974)
