COMMENTS
The Beatles' 9th E.P.
The second pressing was with capitalized printing of "THE GRAMOPHONE CO. LTD." at the perimeter.
On 1st July 1965, EMI underwent a merger and each individual ceased to be a L.T.D. company and became a Subsidiary of "The Gramophone Co. Ltd." which was owned by EMI. This merger meant yet another label change occurred and previous "Parlophone Co. Ltd." rims where replaced with the new "Gramophone" rims.

The song titles and the artist's name were printed in "Roman" type.
2nd. pressings were manufactured two ways: both with and without the push-out center.
