* − under the name Bobby Keyes should be understood Bobby Keys (real name is Robert Henry Keys). An American saxophonist who performed with musicians as George Harrison, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and many others. But best known for his works with The Rolling Stones. In various sources he is often indicated under different names. Most likely this is a pseudonym.

Remixed at Sound Labs, Los Angeles, and at Nova Sound, London (tape operator: Judy Szekeley).

The following misprints are observed:

Accordian: Garth Hudson (on the cover in the title of track 4 on side 1). Misspelling of accordion is present in the first edition as well.
Correct - Accordion.
YOU'RE SIXTEEN, YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL (AND YOU'RE MIND) (title of the last song of side 1 on the cover and on the label).
Correct - YOU'RE SIXTEEN.

This re-issue had changes to the sleeve. It was no longer a gatefold, on the front, the Apple and the french motto were removed, and the rear was completely changed, with a listing of the song credits. The booklet is missing.

Custom inner sleeves can be completely different and correspond to the types that EMI used at that time.



ПРИМЕЧАНИЕ:

Впервые альбом был издан в 1973 году (подробнее см. здесь). Данный вариант является переизданием 1980 года на бюджетном отделении компании EMI "Music For Pleasure".

Перечень музыкантов, игравших на альбоме, и кредиты приведены в английской части страницы (взято с оборотной стороны обложки).
* − под именем Bobby Keyes следует понимать Bobby Keys (реальное имя Robert Henry Keys). Американский саксофонист, игравший с такими музыкантами как Джордж Харрисон, Джон Леннон, Ринго Старр, Йоко Оно и многими другими. Но наиболее известен своими работами с "Роллинг Стоунз". В разных источниках он часто упоминается под различными именами. Скорее всего, это псевдоним.

Замечены следующие опечатки:

Accordian: Garth Hudson (на обложке в названии трека 4 стороны 1). Неправильное написание аккордеона присутствует и в первом издании.
Правильно - Accordion.
YOU'RE SIXTEEN, YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL (AND YOU'RE MIND) (название последней песни стороны 1 на обложке и на на этикетке).
Правильно - YOU'RE SIXTEEN.

Это переиздание имело изменения в обложке. Она больше не была разворотной, на лицевой стороне конверта были удалены логотип Apple и французский девиз, а на обороте были добавлены кредиты. Буклет отсутствует.

Обычные внутренние пакеты могут быть совершенно различными и соответствовать тем типам, которые в то время использовала компания EMI.
