 Later pressings of this 45 had the 1973 orange label design with "e" logo.

 Pitman, NJ label variant added. (Could it be possible to put it first, before the Santa Maria, CA and Terre Haute, IN label variants that currently precede it?)

 BearyNYC's comment on Arif Mardin's strings and horn work on 'Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne' by Looking Glass was adequate enough excuse to treat those unfamiliar with it to the group's US #1 around June 1972.

'Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne' was their only other Hot 100 Hit, reaching only #33 in July '73, but interestingly fell only one week short of the 16 weeks 'Brandy' spent in the chart.

It's a sterling example of the number of fine US hits that never even scratched the UK charts in the 70's. Instead we were suffering the likes of 'Tom, Tom Turnaround'. (Can you believe that went to #6 ?!!)
