Two first's here:
1 This was the first UK re-release of the original Decca recording (there was a vile re-recording done for Warner Brothers in 1962)
2. The first coupling of these two gems and first release of Bill Haley USA Decca recordings by MCA UK.

There was no USA equivalent of this release in 1968. USA MCA had not been launched or established as a label/brand there, they had gone down the sole UNI route.
The UK launch of MCA as a label featured the original USA Decca logo/TM of the Harlequin and Globe something not that commonly known in the UK and did not conflict with the MCA UNI brand/badge yet to come!
