A: Train Of Thought
B: Dixie Girl
"Note also that the matrix number on the Youtube still is the same as "Dixie Girl"'s"

Only because it's MCA 140 B. If they had used the US matrix numbers on UK issues they would have been different. If you look at the US issue of this single, "Dixie Girl" is MC 2193. If it had "Apples" on the B-side instead, it wouldn't have been MC 2193, it would have been MC followed by a different number.

I have seen an oddity on YouTube which I never knew existed. It shows "Apples Don't Fall Far From The Tree" as the B-side of this single (MCA 140).

[YouTube Video]

I have never before heard of any single release of "Apples Don't Fall Far From The Tree", it was an album track, it was on the same album as "Train Of Thought" and "Dixie Girl".

I noticed there is no songwriting credit for "Apples Don't Fall Far From The Tree", although I know from having it on the LP it was written by Bob Stone (also the writer of Cher's hit song "Gypsies, Tramps And Thieves"). I checked the publishing credit and as it happens "Gypsies, Tramps And Thieves" is also Campbell Connelly & Co. Ltd, so I presume such credit would also be correct for "Apples Don't Fall Far From The Tree". I don't know if the label on the YouTube video is fake, or if the single does exist with "Apples" as the B-side instead of "Dixie Girl". This is a completely new one on me. Can anyone else on here say for sure?

Janis Ian

A: El Amor Es Ciego
B: Rosas
Is this single sung in Spanish? The title translates as "Love Is Blind", which is the title of a song by Janis Ian.

A: Quick Change Artist
B: She's Keepin' Time
Was this single ever released anywhere in Europe? I just want to know if it had one of those Mercury numbers starting with 6167 like other BTO singles.

Elvis Presley

A: It's Midnight
B: Promised Land
I don't know, maybe the Canadian branch of RCA thought "It's Midnight" would be a bigger hit. It's a country ballad, quite a contrast to the out-and-out rock 'n' roll of "Promised Land".

I've just noticed, it doesn't say on the label whether "Promised Land" is the A-side or the B-side.
