-- DJ copy, Capitol issued as double A side (Strawberry Fields Forever has lower master number)
-- This DJ pressing (and not the stock versions) has a mix of Penny Lane with a trumpet flourish at the end of the song, a re-mixed version was substituted for the stock copy and all other pressings worldwide. (note - this was later made available on the US pressings of the LP "Rarities" in a Stereo "hybrid" mix).
-- all genuine pressings of this single were pressed at Capitol's Los Angeles plant (look for an asterisk * in the dead-wax) and use the exact same font style pictured above, with shiny lime-green labels.
-- this coupling was bootlegged heavily during the late '70's and 80's (and look very convincing, but beware of dull flat labels, or a printed star on the "Penny Lane" side)
--genuine copies of this record do not have a star printed on either side
-- this is the first of the mid-60s promotional Beatles issues on the Capitol label
Hi. Originally I just wanted 45 with the trumpet ending. Got a copy with the "thin P" number. Obviously a bootleg. still nice though. Later got NM copy with large P and wax 6 point asterisk and shiny yellow green labels. Looks legit. Any other hints to verify?? Beatle Lew.
