(Reissue Stereo) 'Capitol - 1988 purple label re-issue. The difference between this purple label and one one from the late 70s is the Capitol logo is much smaller, perimeter text around most of the label, different factory, and of course the new catalog #.
Capitol re-issued most of their US Beatles 1960s releases in 1988 with new catalog #s and barcodes for the first time. As of this note (Feb 2016), this is the last vinyl pressing of the original US Capitol releases.
Does NOT have a factory designation # on back cover.
Even though it has a new catalog # and matrix stamp, you can still see the old matrix stamp ST-1/2-2108 scratched out in the run-outs.
Pressed at Specialty Record Corporation, identified in the matrix with a large S surrounding R and C stamped in the run-out.'[discogs]
