I HAVE A FAIR KNOWLEDGE OF THE BEATLES ALBUMS BUT DON'T PRETEND TO KNOW ALL THE VARIATIONS OF THEIR RELEASES HOWEVER, I AM INFORMED THAT:-
You have a 1st print Gramophone Sleeve there indicated on the rear panel, as opposed to a 2nd print Apple sleeve, as well as a 1st press commercially released album. Having a 1u in the matrix runout is very very rare. Paul sent out promos with 1u’s on both sides, then due to “mixing and editing feedback”, had the album recut with new -2u’s and -3u’s to follow. Your copy is unique in that it still has a -1u on the second side, which means it has the very slightly extended “Maybe I’m Amazed” (the ending on yours has more drum fill on the fade out, the -2’s fades out earlier).
