|Detail :||The Beatles tenth official E.P.
In 1964 an E.P. had been planned (it was even issued a catalogue number) which was going to contain the "Gold Discs" up to
that point. One year later and this E.P. was the result of that planning.
The release of this E.P. was obviously aimed at extra business of the Christmas market, and contained four of the five
million sellers up to that point in time. The fifth being "A Hard Days Night". Just fourteen days after this release, they
received their sixth U.K. million seller, for "Day Tripper".
Even more phenomenal is that the total world sales for these for singles (at this time!) was over 27 MILLION copies !
The E.P. was released in a picture sleeve with a photograph by Robert Whitaker.
First pressings had the "Golden Discs" label reference, with around the edge of the label, the words stating the rights of
the publishers starting with "The Gramophone Co. Ltd." and across the press-out centre the words,
"sold in U.K. subject to resale price conditions, see price lists" are present.
