Label Toshiba EMI
Catalogue No. EAR 20251
Country of Origin Japan
Release Date 5th June 1977
Detail : These tracks were released as a single in Japan for the first time on 10th March 1969, this is a later re-issue.

This is a very attractive Japanese release. The "Picture Sleeve" you see above is only a loose gatefold sleeve, which wraps around the single, which is housed separately in the Green Apple Toshiba sleeve you see above.
The rear of the gatefold piece has pictures of Beatles L.P.'s all numbered up to 28. This single is numbered on the front as number 31 (top left), I don't know the significance of the numbering, but it certainly looks like it's part of a series.
Inside the gatefold sleeve are the lyrics of both the songs, in English AND in Japanese.
