 1976 the year the Beatles record contract expired

 I'm not disputing issue dates of the original issue, or of any reissues, I was explaining the copy I have, and how I bought it. If anyone does have the original issue, there'll be three distinct differences - 1: the absence of the EMI logo at the bottom of the label. 2: the words "Sold In U.K. Subject To...." just below the spindle hole(solid or optional push-out centres). 3: the words Made In Gt. Britain around the bottom edge.

 Do people not read the original comments.Back in 2011 i clearly stated that this single was a 1976 issue.

 Core blimey! No pips.

 It is definitely a 70s reissue.

3rd Mar 2015
 That is the first publication date.

It cannot be the issue date as Apple Records DID NOT EXIST in 1966.

What's so difficult about this?!

3rd Mar 2015
 The label *clearly* states 1966, not 1976.

I have several "mistakes" like this where early Beatles singles pressed in the US are on Apple and the A and B Sides reversed. Ditto, the Plastic Ono Band.

 I bought a copy of this when a record store in Newcastle(Tyrrells Recordland) started selling the singles out of the boxed-sets and putting them on the shelves as separate singles. The disc itself carried the Parlophone label, though, because it was a re-issue, it was the more modern label with the EMI logo at the bottom. And yes, it was a British pressing as I don't think EMI Australia was all that interested in putting out a boxed-set of Beatles singles, no matter how big a cash-cow the group was to EMI, then or now. The disc had the usual four-pronged optional(push-out) centre and clearly showed the year 1966 on the label. The box-sets had all the pre-68 discs on Parlophone and from Hey Jude/Revolution on to Let It Be/You Know My Number, those were on the Apple label. The example I have(issued in 1976) is in the Linked Release images, bottom line second-from-right.

 That isn't relevant to what label issued it in 1976 though. By that argument, anything reissued today on a modern label like Sony or Phonogram should be reclassified. (Um. Can of worms, anyone?)

 The pressing, a reissue, is from 1976, but the recording, what's in that there groove(as the publishing date on the labels clearly state) is from 1966!

3rd Mar 2015
 Except that it's clearly dated 1976...

Neil Forbes
3rd Mar 2015
 If it's pre-1968, it should be on Parlophone as the Apple label didn't exist in 1966.

3rd Mar 2015
 I would say Apple/Parlophone as it has "PARLOPHONE" printed on the label... :happy:

18th Jun 2012
 I'd just leave it at Apple...it's (so far) unique in the Irish Beatle discography......(and it was issued on Parlophone in Ireland)...opinions Euro folk?....John

18th Jun 2012
 Should the label be Apple/Parlophone?

16th Mar 2011
 Lovindem45's... you like the b-side better but you rate it 4/10 compared to the a-side's 7/10?!!

13th Mar 2011
 I def liked the b-side better!

13th Mar 2011
 Maybe he dug the B-side better!....take care til then...........John

 This is my last posting until next Sunday as i am off to the Cheltenham races first thing in the morning.This 1976 Irish Pressing is something else indeed.I can only assume that some enterprising worker decided to use up a batch of old Apple labels that he found lying around.Save the ( Rain) forest.He even put it up as the A side.
