The German issue lists the B-side time as 3:39, so I would assume it would be 3:39 on the French issue as well.

I hadn't thought of that, but I think W.B.lbl is correct. I checked other issues of the single. The UK issue doesn't state the time, but the US issue does, and sure enough Jungle Fever is 2 minutes 10 seconds - the exact "length" of this South African "version" of Telstar.

A very short version of "Telstar" (just 2 minutes 10 seconds) appeared on the South African issue. The track is more than a minute longer in other countries. Why was it cut so short in South Africa?

Thank you, Jack. I have thought that all along. Why, then, are record release dates so often given as Sundays (such as 20 July 1975, for example)? I have seen other examples of Sundays being given as release dates on other websites and I have questioned it on other websites, but nobody seems to know why they do it.

As for this particular record, the demo has 20 June 1975 as its release date, which was a Friday and since the majority of records were released on Fridays in the UK in the 1970s I don't see how anyone could argue with that. 20 June 1975 just has to be the correct release date.

[Mod edit: changed to June]

"This is weird. It has a catalogue number from Oct 1974 but a 1975 date on the label"

Maybe it was released in October 1974 in another country that used the same sequence of numbers, but not released in the UK until 1975 (not that rare an occurrence). It is not nearly as weird as saying it was released on 20 July 1975. I am still not convinced that any records were released on Sundays. In view of what My Friend Jack says (which I do believe is correct), I would guess the release date as given on the demo label (20 June 1975, a much more feasible Friday) to be correct. Who started the rumour (which is all over the Internet) that some records were released on Sundays?
