The mastering of this album is t e r r i b l e , which is uncommon for a Japanese CD. If you're looking for a decent CD-version buy the 1990's UK version instead.

A great introduction album by "the girls" and the original USA first run UNI pressings came in the lavishly presented gatefold sleeve with inner sleeve and full colour rainbow UNI labels.

Sadly The UK Decca UNI equivalent only had a single sleeve that featured just the USA outers viz: the sunset and Pacific Ocean the labels at the time were single colour (Yellow) + black text and as with all UK Decca family releases, the labels were 7" single size and not the larger labels usually used on 12" releases! (Cost cutting by Sir Ted or what!!)

When the UNI branding was dropped and incorporated in to MCA both USA and UK wise. (Note that although MCA had a UK brand launch in 1968, It did not happen in the USA where the USA Decca brand continued with the Harlequin and globe and was gradually morphed into UNI (Uni-versal The studios that MCA now owned by buying USA Decca and uni-ting back the pair) then finally USA wise into umbrella MCA branding).

In 1974 the UK album was re-pressed and marketed by the newly EMI licenced MCA with their new dark labels with a full colour rainbow, EMI is named on the rim text. The Sleeve was a clever marketing tool and again was just a single sleeve, however this time was the Inner artwork of the USA Uni Gatefold. And had EMI Records below the MCA logo on the bottom of the rear image.

When CBS took over UK MCA manufacturing It too had an inital re-press with the Dark and Rainbow labels and naturally now no mention of EMI either on the removed from image labels rim text, or on the rear of the sleeve.
When MCA changed it's label design to the blue sky, clouds and rainbow, later CBS pressings were shipped with these new cheerful labels.

MCA UK changed manufacturers twice more, firstly to Polygram, then back to EMI (when Polygram went 100% CD). and had two further label variations. At no stage did the album have a re-press/re-release under these later manufacturings and label variations of MCA-UK.

There is sadly an issue with this album, and it is with the sonics! The sound is very very very over tinny, thin and verging on distortion on the harmonies in places.

Someone needs to go back to the original multi's and give this a good seeing to, enriching the strings adding some bass and re eq'ing the screeching vocals. Walking In The Rain really does suffer from a lack of guts/oomph and over all depth, it kind of hurts the ears!

What is quite interesting and rather pointless was the UK Decca's UNI release of the two singles, as both were released in mono rather than their USA superior stereo counterparts, why?

UK EMI and CBS with their retro-repressings corrected this original UK Decca mono gaff and put the tracks out in Stereo! (The mixing was still wafer thin with no guts or depth, what was wrong with Barry? He had a long period of no-bass no guts on so much of his early and excellent work).

Are You Sure was later re-visted by Barry & Co and a great instrumental version was presented by the Orchestra (session musicians) on the excellent MY Sweet Summer Suite album
