Third release of this compilation with red/white/gold labels and old style label design (sharp type '33' rpm indicator in circle at the bottom of the labels), with new rim text ('Urheber- und Leistungsrechte...') and with new catalogue number.

This 1966 variant:
-White/gold/red label design,
-"Big" N° 1 and 2 on both label sides,
-Label A with the tracks in 8 Lines, NOT in 7 lines,
-Track A2 correctly spelt "Twist And Shout",
-Copyright text/rim text beginning with "Urheber..." and not as the 65' version with "Alle...".
-"YBEX-matrix" appears under GEMA box and not under catalog #.

On the front left upper corner, Odeon is above the EMI logo. Later pressings were the reverse.

-She Loves You A7 is fake stereo
-I Feel Fine B1 sounds like the version from Beatles '65 in the US, fake stereo drenched with echo.
-All My Loving B8 has the hi-hat intro.
Track A2 on label is missspelled "Twist And Shou" without a "t" at the end.
