Initial copies came with a USA picture sleeve. Released in November 1967. A number 1 hit in large markets and a Top 5 everywhere else.
This single reflects well what was going on with the Beatles at the time. McCartney's pop tune "Hello Goodbye" was chosen As the A-side over Lennon's much more adventurous "I Am The Walrus" on the B-side. Lennon pushed hard for his song to be the A-side, but he was overruled by McCartney and George Martin who thought the McCartney tune was more commercial. A sign of things to come.
Initial pressings had the word Canada on the label without brackets.
