Eighth Australian pressing by World Record Club. Original was The Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour And Other Splendid Hits. The catalogue numbers starting with "R-" were introduced in December 1974 (in the case of reissues, the old sleeve designs were retained, almost always with the previous "S/" number and address combinations). Here, the obsolete 1969 address combination is unchanged on the back of the sleeve. The sleeve manufacturing process changed at the end of 1976 - before that, a laminate strip is present down the right side of the rear of the sleeve. Here, it is absent. The labels have "stereo" printed at 7:00.
On the back cover George Martin appears as 'Big George Martin', on the labels as just 'George Martin'.
