Whilst other territories that released this single (e.g. the USA for one) had Got To Get You Into My Life as the A Side and Helter Skelter as the B Side, the Japanese release reversed the tracks.
In addition the other releases used a sleeve mirroring that of the compilation album, but this was not the case here.

Toshiba had already begun use of the new EMI/Odeon label as early as 1976 on certain new releases not covered under the Apple label. By the early 1980's, the EMI/Odeon label had completely supplanted the Apple label on all Beatles releases. When the record label change, the EMI/Odeon logo also replaced the Apple logo on the front sleeves of all records.
