The information listed is a total fabrication and fantasy The record was pressed by CBS UK Aylesbury for Inferno the order was then shipped to Pinnacle in Orpington Kent for distribution and sales to retailers under contract from Inferno.
This record has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Lyntone Company.

What is not noted is what the audio sonics are! Is TL in it's "glorious" stereo mix or yet again plain mono ? (Other Inferno licensed titles Freda Payne "Band Of Gold," The Ad-Libs "The Boy From NY City" also suffered this lack of the sonics info on their labels).

Again poor lack of attention to detail, especially as all three titles original releases USA and UK were in mono TL is the only track that never had an original UK release prior to this, (It would have, had it done so been on EMI's $tateside) so naturally to musicologists, discographers and collectors the sonics are a very important and crucially required piece of information.

IMHO the mono/stereo sonics should have been industry mandatory and standard on ALL releases label info From January 1969 when the 2nd wave of Stereo releases especially singles began.

The 1st wave of stereo singles 1958 - 1963 fizzled out and ended in a public scandal, The real reason was because the USA companies had all agreed on a hush hush lets rip the public off scam of charging $1 - $2 more for a Stereo pressing, implying the manufacture had cost more, in fact, really just doubling their profits on manufacturing!

In the UK Decca, Pye and EMI went one stage further and all agreed to only press Stereo Albums and EPs because hush hush they too like the USA labels could charge 10/- (50p) - £1 more and double profits.

To master and cut a stereo recoding is exactly the same costing wise as cutting mono recording. Naturally the initial cost of a Stereo tape play back machine laythe cutting head and mixing desk were production absorbed across every initial master cut, the tape, acetate blanks, metals, plating labels and presses costs are the same be the recording mono or stereo, the gullible USA public didn't know that!

The issue was having to invest and buy new equipment NOT the extra $$$ con the labels made. When in 1962 this rip off was made known/ public Stereo singles were swiftly abandoned by a large majority of the teenage buyers.

Caught with their pants down the labels responded churlishly " if you ain't buying, we ain't supplying !" Not a ooops! Sorry we've been ripping you off, from now on there will no longer be a price difference between mono or stereo releases, thank you for buying our records.

The latter part finally kicked in quietly, and un noticed naturally as it wasn't stated on the labels, USA wise in 1968.
