In 1976, Capitol of Canada started to reissue The Beatles singles on their new orange label in a series called Beatles Forever. A special sleeve was created showing a montage of the four ‘head shot’ photographs on the front of the Let It Be album at the top of a white t-shirt with a Union Flag on the chest, and yellow print across the flag stating Beatles Forever. All the singles had this same front sleeve, but the specific titles for each single were written on the sleeve rear, making a different sleeve for every single issued.

Some of the 45s used in this series included copies containing the previous Capitol ’target’ label.

Even though it was mixed in 1966, this is the first issue anywhere in the world of the stereo mix of This Boy.

 Hi. This is called the Forever sleeve. However, 3 of the 25 standard singles do not have this sleeve, I'll cry instead, Slow down, and I feel fine. Those 3 were released as Starline tan label singles, very hard to find. And my Starline Slow down/Matchbox is Stereo, both sides. Strange but cool. Also, 4 later singles following Long and winding road have Forever PS, Got to get you into my life, All my loving, Kansas City, and Twist and shout. 26 total unless someone knows better. Beatle Lew.

 Actually, this was pressed by RCA's Smiths Falls, Ontario plant (it was during this period that MCA's Cornwall, Ontario plant was on the verge of closing).

 The records scanned are from roughly the first half of 1976. These feature the larger text and were pressed by a subcontractor. It might have been MCA. Somebody here will know that but I'm afraid I don't.
