|The seventeenth official EMI release.
No significant variations of the label that I know about.
Lady Madonna entered the U.K. chart on 20th March 1968 at number 5 ... (No. 1 at the time was "Cinderalla Rockefella") ...
the following week it took over the top slot.
I do have the original paper sleeve for this one, but above, you can see the type of sleeve that was used for issues of
earlier Beatles records repressings. This of course, is the rear, showing another "Miner's Make-up" ad.
Some original copies came with an insert from the Beatles fan club offering a free poster on application of the club.
I have just such a copy, and am pleased to show the insert with it's perforated application form. It is very rare
to have one of these examples INTACT.
And below, the picture disc version released in England as part of the,
"It Was Twenty Years Ago" series, on 14th March 1988.
