U.S.A.
release intended for May 19, 1969 then July 14, 1969 on Apple ST-3355.
page from Apple Records upcoming U.S. releases from May 1969
A page from Apple's catalog thru May, 1969. Note that the Lomax track listing was changed from this one at the last minute to include his new single, "New Day", replacing "How Can You Say Goodbye", thus no longer matching the British line-up. Had the Iveys LP been released at the same time as Jackie's, the release date would have been May 19, 1969. Note also that the Iveys cover shown here appears to be the one with the light green background that is shown below, rather than the final, dark green version. This catalog page was probably prepared in April, 1969 based on this information.

Maybe Tomorrow stereo LP (USA) front cover proofMaybe Tomorrow proposed U.S. cover (from CD reissue)
Different album cover art for the U.S. version of the Maybe Tomorrow LP was prepared in April 1969. The U.S. release was scheduled for May, then delayed until July, and then eventually withdrawn because of the disappointing sales and chart position of the single. Also, Allen Klein had just taken over Apple, and multiple record releases were postponed while Klein tried to straighten out the company's financial situation. Shown here is one of the proofs for the front cover. Note that the original background was light green. A handwritten note to see someone named Mitch is written on the proof to get the background color changed to dark green to blend in with the color of the Iveys' suits as seen on the final version (CD cover shown).

Reissues and pirate copies:
Maybe Tomorrow (EMF label, repressing mastered from vinyl)

This was a reissue on the EMF label from the 1980s. It was mastered from an original vinyl copy of the LP, not from the master. The EMF logo replaces the original Apple label on the front cover.

This is a very common pirate copy of the Italian issue of the LP, also from the 1980s. It has a black label instead of the green apple. The cover photo is not as sharp as an original.
