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.

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.

Where do you find out chart information for singles such as this one, which fell outside the Top 50 (or whatever the official chart was at the time)? I want a complete list of singles which reached the top 100 in the UK, especially in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and the peak position for each and every one of them. Where can I find such a list?

The Rolling Stones

A1: Carol
A2: I Just Want To Make Love To You
B1: Tell Me
B2: Route 66
Yet the UK Decca label did release an F 11999 and it's not a Rolling Stones record. The Italian issues of the other Rolling Stones singles had the same numbers as their UK equivalents, so how did this oddity come about?

B: Love In Vain
Didn't you ever wonder why it wasn't a chart hit in the UK, bigtom?
