Hey Jude / Revolution, Apple, R 5722 (Pye contract).

Published June 1st, 2008

Hey Jude / Revolution, Apple R 5722, Mono, August, 1968. Very Rare First pressing Pye Contract. Push-out center. Pye contract pressing which features dark green Apple label with “Sold In UK…” text. These are its distinguishing characteristics:
1. There is no tax code around the centre hole on either side of the disc.
2. The ridge is approximately 2.5mm in from the edge of the push-out centre or about 10mm out from the center hole.
3. The secondary ridge runs right on the very edge next to the triangular centre attachments. You can only see a second ridge at the base of these triangular shapes and *extremely* flush against the edge gap, whereas on the Decca discs this ridge is clearly visible around the extreme edge rim of the pushout section. This is consistent with all Decca and Pye discs.
4. The gap between the push-out centre and the main body of the disc is approximately 2.25mm.
5. The tax code can be found at the 12 o’clock position.
6. The mother plate number (either single or double figured) is at the 9 o’clock position.
7. A hand-etched letter has been scratched in at the 3 o’clock position. This does NOT appear on the Decca contract pressings.
8. The matrix number is stamped at the 6 o’clock position in the deadwax.
Matrix numbers: Side A: 7XCE.21185-1 (hand-etched letter), Side B: 7XCE.21186-1 (hand-etched letter).
