|Detail :||The Beatles seventh official E.P.
The full title of the E.P. is actually;
"Extracts from the Album A Hard Days Night", and was the second of two E.P.'s with tracks from the latest L.P.
This E.P. contains four tracks from the album, but NOT featured in the film, the other contains four tracks from the film.
What this E.P. also provides is that just like the E.P. release of just two days previously, every track on side TWO of the album, except "I'll Be Back" was available on 45rpm format in 1964 !
This release also failed to enter the singles chart AND failed to reach the top of the E.P. charts.
The E.P. was released in a picture sleeve with eight pictures from the album, and sleeve notes were by Tony Barrow.
Finally, how do you spot original pressings ? ....
The sleeve also has marked differences. For starters (surprisingly !) the quality of new editions is worse, which suggests
that EMI copied old sleeves rather than the actual photos ! ... I could demonstrate this with my copy of "A Hard Days Night",
I have an original and a newer edition, and it is astonishing how much worse the newer one is !
