Credits

Notes

The liners denotes Freddie King as songwriter of 'The Letter', while GEMA denotes Riley B King and Jules Taub, an alias of Jules Bihari. The given credit Josua refers to Joe Josea alias Joe Bihari, brother of Jules. But indeed they never wrote songs, but added their names to the documents of the artist they released at their Modern Records (2) label, to claim 50% of the royalities. So this Josea credits left unlinked.

The voices of John Peel, Hughie Green, Max Wall, Kenneth Williams, Chris Wood, Rt. Hon. Harold Wilson, Steptoe and Son, and that of a Radio 5 announcer, appear.
Although orange CBS labels state "Made in Holland", BIEM and STEMRA, this is obviously for the German market, as the liner notes are in this tongue and price sticker reads "DM 22,-".
S 68 252 at the cover, S 68252 on the labels. Matrix engraved and suffixed with -A, -B, -C, -D, but not good readable.
Includes two company inner sleeves with CBS advertisement out of the time.
