Revolver, Parlophone, PCS 7009.

Published July 16th, 2011

Revolver, Parlophone, PCS 7009, August 5, 1966, stereo. Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. or Ernest J.Day & Co. front laminated flipback cover with small “stereo” on the front and with “Dr. Robert” (early variation) or “Doctor Robert” song credit on the back side.

1.First pressing. August 5, 1966. Black label with yellow logo and silver print. “The Gramophone Co. Ltd.” printed at the start perimeter print and “Sold in U.K. subject…” text. Plain white or sepia “LP advertising” inner sleeve. With or without KT tax code on the label. Matrix numbers: Side 1: YEX 605-1; Side 2: YEX 606-1.

Variation A. This is how the labels first appeared on the shelves. Still using the sans serif Arial typeset. Also, these early labels misprint the side 2 track Doctor Robert as “Dr. Robert”. These early Sans-serif labels have each song title starting on a new line with the first line purely for “Taxman” and have “Eleanor Rigby” starting on the second line down. Also something to note on these original labels is that each song title was followed by song credits and then lead vocalist.

Variation B. As variation A, but the “Dr. Robert” error on side 2 has been corrected, now correctly reading “Doctor Robert”. This probably occurred within a short time after the LP was first released.

Variation C. This variation incorporates the corrected Doctor Robert spelling to the Sans-serif label. This label exhibits a new layout design most notably with side one having both “Taxman” and “Eleanor Rigby” on the first line. The credits pattern of “Song (Composer)-Lead Singer” has also now switched to “Song-Lead Singer (Composer)”. This probably appeared in late 1967 or 1968.

2. Second pressing, summer 1969 until November 1969. Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd. front laminated cover, with small “stereo” on front. Black label with yellow logo and silver print. “The Gramophone Co.

3. Third pressing, November 1969 until 1970. Black label with one black-white EMI logo and silver print. “The Gramophone Co Ltd…” printed at the start perimeter print and “Made In GT. Britain” lower text. Laminated flipback “Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd” sleeve. Sepia or black & white “LP advertising” inner sleeve. Matrix numbers: Side 1: YEX 605-1; Side 2: YEX 606-1.

“Columbia” pressing. This pressing is found in two variations. The first variation has the Columbia logo on the side 1 and Parlophone logo on the side 2. The second variation has Parlophone logo on the side 1 and a Columbia logo on side 2. For some reason there is such design is not known. Most likely this printing error.
