PROMOTION COPY - NOT FOR SALE
℗ 1975 Island Records Inc.

In spite of the clear copyright date of 1975 on the label on both sides, this promotional release was available by the summer of 1974. Three AOR stations - KZEL, WBCN and WIOT - reported it in rotation in the Radio & Records issue dated June 20, 1974, and it is clearly listed as a top single receiving airplay in that same issues AOR report.

The date on the label reads 1975, which is consistent with the album on which these two songs appeared, (although it's worth noting that the album, Slow Dazzle, is not mentioned on this single). However, at least three FM rock stations were playing this record - or another one with the exact same track listing - as early as June 1974, according to Radio & Records: KZEL, WBCN and WIOT.
