Notes:
This Master Release is only for the "John, I'm Only Dancing" b/w "Hang On To Yourself" single releases.

Please use separate Master Releases for the following single releases:
John I'm Only Dancing (Again) 1975 b/w Golden Years
John, I'm Only Dancing (1972) b/w Joe The Lion
John, I'm Only Dancing (Again) 1975 b/w John, I'm Only Dancing (1972)

The 40th anniversary (2012) single John, I'm Only Dancing (Original Single Version) b/w John, I'm Only Dancing (Sax Version) [1973; Aladdin Sane Sessions] doesn't belong under any of the above Master Releases as this single contains the original 1972 version and the 1973 'sax' version (recorded during the Aladdin Sane sessions), which weren't combined together as a single before.

Can't find my copy among the listed releases. It's close but no cake to a couple of them.

Here's the A-side:

Note the RCA sleeve, which says 1971, making me think it should be one of the 1972 releases.

Two different (music) versions of 'John, I'm only dancing' were released by RCA in the UK during 1972/3. Both have the same cat#: RCA 2263. The original version has stamped matrix numbers BGBS 1056. The less common 'Sax' version has etched matrix numbers BGBS·1056·A·2E and the word 'STEREO' is not printed on the label. For more info, visit this excellent website (no cnnection with me):
