||The twentieth official EMI release.
The first Beatles stereo single, and therefore, the first NOT to be mixed for mono.
Incidentally the stereo mix was completed in the last two hours of the booked recording session all on 14th April making it a very fast completion.
It was also a very fast release, released just 42 days after recording had finished even though Get Back was still at number one !
No change to the Apple design of label or sleeve that we first saw on the previous release.
Below is the picture disc version released in England as part of the,
"It Was Twenty Years Ago" series, on 30th May 1989.
In some countries the line "Christ, you know it ain't easy" was considered unnecessary and
there are some bizarre edits around that either omit the word "Christ" completely or in a New Zealand
example, have it replaced with two drum beats from another part of the record.
Seemingly legitimate Apple pressings have surfaced stickered with "NZBC" that feature that edit as pictured
at the bottom of this webpage.
