COMMENTS
The "Sold in U.K." text has gone from the label.
Beginning in 1964, Parlophone (and all the other EMI companies) began printing a phrase in the centers of all their singles, EP's and LP's, which said:

SOLD IN U.K. SUBJECT TO
RESALE PRICE CONDITIONS,
SEE PRICE LISTS.

This notice appears on the labels of every UK market EMI product, from very early 1964, right through mid-1969.
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.

3rd. pressings were manufactured two ways: both with and without the push-out center.
