Classic UK "pop" gem, and must have, but NOT this pointless and silly MONO Philips pressing. This could have so easily come out in Stereo, the track was mixed in Stereo for the album. Some one should have slapped the legs of the production manager at Phonogram for this slackness. and lack of long term thought, this was their first release needed to make a massive audio statement and it never too full Hi-Fi advantage, actually this could have been a Phonogram nightmare and been an IEP painted blue had the idiots in France perfected the methodology. So it does have paper labels either LH Die-Cut or dinked 3pin Optional Centre...... Just a massive shame that empty box does not say STEREO.

Thank god for the GULL (via Decca and superbly cut and finished)) 1975 retro release ( note has a different B side, so this can not ever be classed as a re-release), as it's in it's enriching full blooded stereo mix, Miss Bell's shared vocals with Graham just come alive. "if it can only come know,... you know...., what we need it a great big set of mixing-pots...big enough to mix the lot of what we've got,... keep on mixing for one hundred years or more......turning out genuine proper real mixes by the score "

As the Brand use to advertise it's bio line, Mono Philips/Phonogram.....Non Dolby B encoded musicassettesssssss and non chipped recordersssssssssssssssssss.....
".Philipssssssss.....ssssssssssssssssssimply yearsssssssssssssssss behind" Lyingly Philips "simply years ahead".
