 The issue dates to this LP and its mono equivalent do not seem right. July 10 is when they were released in the UK.
July 11 issue of BB
reports that within four days after the release already a million copies had been sold. UA had made that statement on July 1.
Therefore the issue date given on wikipedia (June 26) appears to be correct.
Beatle buffs to the front!

 Can someone help me determine my sealed copy of AHDN? It has 3 lines of Publishing Credit on the back with only This Boy (MACLEN). Lastly, it has the "Released Thru Alun Owen" and "Screenplay By United Artists" reversed (SC22). Yet everything I read says that the 3 lines of publishing credit for This Boy only are 1964, First Pressing covers, but, "Released Thru" & "Screenplay By" Error has only been listed on later covers with the 4 lines of Publishing Credits. Can someone shed some light on this for me?
Thanks, Bob

 Finally added bright red original front cover....John

29th Jun 2019
 Added images of a slight variant of the "sunrise" label - this version does not have the word "stereo" on it between the side and label numbers.

9th Nov 2015
 Actually, in order, {Images #880854 & 880855} should come before {Images #489114 & 489115}. The errant "Tell Me Who" on the beige and brown label had the rim print show "United Artists Records, Inc.," as opposed to "United Artists Music And Records Group, Inc." Incidentally, all "Tell Me Who" copies, regardless of label, were typeset by Progressive Label & Litho of Brooklyn, NY.

 Added another tan label variant which includes track A2 being misspelled as "Tell Me Who".

24th Oct 2015
 Looks right for now (pending future additions, of course) . . . ;-)

24th Oct 2015
 Thanks for the info W.B.lbl. Correct order now?

24th Oct 2015
 In terms of sequential order, the labels should be:
1) {Images #867843 & 867844} (1964 original from Columbia Records' Pitman, NJ plant)
2) {Images #634996 & 634998} (1968-69 West Coast pressing with Alco Research & Engineering typesetting)
3) {Images #489114 & 489115} (1975-77 variant)
4) {Images #478246 & 478247} (1978 label)

As for the cover, the front {Image #490112} should be first, followed by the back cover {Image #867842} which in order clearly precedes {Images #489113 & 478245}.

24th Oct 2015
 Added early United Artists label set. Also added a third version of the back cover with different publishing information type under Lennon and McCartney's names.
