Question Apple

The first official single released on Apple Records was Mary Hopkins "Those Were The Days". Its catalog number was Apple 2. What happened to Apple 1?

Apple 1 was a private recording of Frank Sinastra singing a version of "The Lady Is a Tramp" for Maureen Starkey's 21st birthday.

Another try: Its master tape has been destroyed.

The title of the song was changed to "Lady is a Champ" sung by Frank for Maureen.

Apple 1 was actually a totally one-off re-recording of ‘The Lady Is A Tramp’ sung by Ol’ Blue Eyes, made in 1968 for Ringo Starr’s then-wife, Maureen, who was a big Sinatra fan.

Retitled ‘The Lady Is A Champ’, Sammy Cahn rewrote the lyrics, personalising them for the surprise gift for Maureen’s 22nd birthday.

Only one copy was made and then the master tapes were destroyed.

This is the entire information I was looking for. Another point to jonesingjay.
