Born in Wrexham, UK, 16 March 1962. My avatar is the original label of Elvis Presley's hit single "Can't Help Falling In Love" (RCA 1270), which was at Number One on the UK singles chart when I was born.

Shakin' Stevens

A2: Josephine (Live)
B1: Lawdy Miss Clawdy (Live)
B2: Que Sera, Sera (Live)
Was this EP ever released in Europe, with a conventional Epic number (as opposed to the terribly silly SHAKY 1)? I can only find the UK and Irish pressings on here, both with that annoying number.

Shakin' Stevens And The Sunsets

A: Sweet Little Rock And Roller
B: White Lightning
Numbers 2058 212 and 2058 214 were both released on 17 March 1972 according to this site, so, logically so was 2058 213 (this one).

The label says the release date is 11th January 1980 (not 4th January 1980). Either way, it didn't enter the charts until 16th February 1980.

Thin Lizzy

A: Little Darling
B: Buffalo Girl
I never cared much for the plastic labels myself, bigtom, even though I did buy a fair few of them in the 1970s and 80s. I had to buy whatever they had in the shops at the time, but I do prefer paper labels to plastic ones given the choice. I also like the way the Irish Decca retained the old-style labels, it added a touch of nostalgia.

The Marmalade

A: Cousin Norman
B: Lonely Man
I wouldn't call it "outmoded", Neil. I mentioned that on the Irish issue of Thin Lizzy's "Little Darling", which was released in 1974. I like a lot of the Irish labels, I like their choice of font as well as the label designs.
