I'm a retired female who loves lyrics and learning about the artists' histories. I have an extensive collection of songs in a variety of media, from all speeds of vinyl to CDs and MP3s. My expertise is in the songs of 1960s, but I also have a body of knowledge of the late '50s and a smattering of knowledge of the songs from the '70s and '80s. I have been married for 23 years, no children. We do, however, have a Chihuahua who is so spoiled and such a control freak that we named our house after him!

The Classics [Atlanta]

A: Pollyanna
B: Cry Baby
I am pretty sure that the A-side of this UK record, as well as the US pressing is "Cry Baby" and that "Pollyanna" is the B-side. You can generally tell which one was A and which one was B by the song's catalog number (as opposed to the record's catalog number. In this case the record's catalog number is 15470 (UK) and 5710 (US). But the songs' catalog numbers are the same in both countries "Pollyanna"'s cat.# is 56199, "Cry Baby" is 56198. It was customary to assign the lower number to the song intended to be the A-side. (Of course you couldn't always apply this rule to subsequent printings, especially when they changed B-sides or made 2 A-sides.) I am going to post a picture of "Cry Baby." It's a bit small but I think you can see the song's catalog number.

A: Little Darlin'
B: Faithful And True
I believe that the numbers OG 9479-A and OG 9479-B are the song's catalog numbers. The number that should be listed as the record's catalog number in the Record Details section appears to be D117/3. I wanted to run this up the flag pole before I change it.

According to the Tamla label and the liner notes from the anthology "The 35th Anniversary Collection" Smokey produced the B-side - "Whatever Makes You Happy.

The Miracles

A: A Love She Can Count On
B: I Can Take A Hint
This isn't one of The Miracles best records. Don't get me wrong, I a tremendous fan of The Miracles in any and all of their incarnations, I guess they can't all be winners. :(
