Four songs from the Beatles album "Beatles For Sale" were packaged with a copy of the L.P. cover design. Three of the tracks had been considered as their last single of 1964, until John came up with "I Feel Fine". The track NOT thought of as a single was their stage favourite "Rock And Roll Music", this was because it was not written by the lads, and cover versions would no longer be considered for their own single releases.
The sale for the album "Beatles For Sale" had been so remarkable, that fewer buyers were interested in this E.P. or its successor.
The E.P. was released in a picture sleeve, and had sleeve notes 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 !
