COMMENTS
White label with black ink and, on the A-side, a large red "A" over the face of the label.
  • "The Parlophone Co. Ltd. (small letter)" on its outer rim.
  • Without  a (P) symbol
  • Without  the intended release date at the center of the label.

Made for both radio and for the record shops, all U.K. Parlophone and Apple 7" Beatles singles had promotional Records.
A Promo is always a copy of the exact performance and mix that is to be sold in the record shops. It is pressed from the very same plates used to make the commercially-available 45rpm singles.

The first 12 Beatles singles, from "Love Me Do" trough "Paperback Writer"(*)  all had promo's on white-label disks with black ink and, on the Aside, a large red "A" over the face of the label.
Records like "Day tripper/We Can Work It Out", issued as double-A-sided disks, had the red "A" on both sides of the record label.

* excepted for "She Loves You, Can't Buy Me Love, I Feel Fine, and Help!"
EMI did not prepare a demonstration record for these records.

Beginning with "All You Need Is Love (**)", Promo's were made with a lime-green background and a White "A" on the intended Aside.
These lime -green promo's had slightly-smaller labels, so the labels fit within the circle of ridges surrounding the label area, instead of overlapping onto them, as the previous promo's did.

**  EMI did not prepare a demonstration record for "Strawberry Fields Forever"

The second pressing was with capitalized printing of "THE PARLOPHONE CO. LTD." at the perimeter, and has the small Parlophone logo.
It has the central remark "SOLD IN UK...", and the "(P) 1965" statement.

#9-3 and #9-4 (=this record) pressing of the single differ from each other, since #9-4. press of the label, has a different  typeface in the text of the record's label compared with #9-3. press. The difference is most obvious in the letters 'R' and '6'.
