 ∆61508-X Wild Thing
∆61508 With a Girl Like You

21st Mar 2015

3rd Feb 2014
 Recorded at Olympic Sound Studios, London, England. Engineered by Keith Grant. The ocarina was played by Colin Frechter.

13th Jan 2014
 First pressing promos had With A Girl Like You as the Plug side. I'm separated from my collection at the moment but I do have the promo variation like that and will add label scans as soon as I am able.

13th Jan 2014
 My copy on Fontana (All Time Fontana Hits) has the sound albeit not so pronounced.

12th Jan 2014
 Believe it or not, there is a teenie-tiny difference between the Atco and Fontana releases. The Atco release has a click (drum rim?) at 2:09 right after Presley says "You move me" and before the next note. The Fontana version doesn't have that sound.

 Added a rough looking plug side variation of this record from my collection, other side is worse.

31st Oct 2013
 Added two label variants, one with incorrect writing credit for A side, the other with it corrected. Also note that images # 396119 & #1034842 list Dick James as music publisher, while the others all correctly list Blackwood.

6th May 2012
 And in a wild coincidence, this coupling also comprised the reissue Fontana All-Time Fontana Hits F-1101.

19th Mar 2012
 Added label variant from Columbia Records' Pitman, NJ pressing plant - the first known Columbia pressing of an Atco single, with writing credits assigned to Reg Presley - and music publishing credits assigned to Dick James (BMI) - on both sides.
