 From checking the rim print above, it appears that {Images #109675, 109676, 17357 & 17358} would come first in order, as the typesetting and wording of the rim print and the positioning of the '45 RPM' and 'MADE IN ENGLAND' were all holdovers from the old Pye Nixa design - and thus {Images #58429, 58430, 289797 & 289798} were later pressings. Apparently while this was in release, Pye did a revamp to its label design.

 The Gaumont Cinema where this was recorded was demolished two years ago. Yet another act of urban vandalism in a town that doesn't seem to value its past. One of the girls shreiking their heads off in laughter is my then 16 year-old aunt.

 Just reading the Lonnie Donegan biography. This release had so many pre-orders that Pye were forced to use EMI as contract presser. Without double checking, this was the first single to dump the now defunct "Skiffle" references

 aha! good detective work!

I'm just about to put up more release dates from more release sheets I've pulled out!!

22nd Aug 2012
 Record Retailer announced in the issue dated July 16th, 1964 that from Aug 1st Pye will issue records on Friday instead of Tuesday. I never realised this always assumed they were released like all other labels on a Friday. We live and learn.

 mmm... that sheds a bit more light... this Pye pamphlet def states Wednesday releases for a couple of singles/e.p.'s... more research is needed!!

 If you stood at the record counter in Browns you had your back to the toy and jokes counter .Always remember hearing a yobbo asking for "Plastic Cack"

 When I was a lad records were always released on Fridays. 4.15pm Fridays, Les Browns in
Stockton was always packed with kids after the latest sounds, me included.

 I have a Pye release pamphlet that shows this as a Wednesday?!?! 16th March 1960 release date (the pamphlet also shows another 5 singles released on this date)

can anyone confirm singles/e.p.'s were released on Wednesday's in the late 50's/early 60's?!

 "You've missed me, am I too late?" "No, jump up on the cart." If you were at the Doncaster Gaumont that night you'd have had a ball, no I wasn't, I saw him at the Bradford Alhambra and then many years later at Twin Towns, Tweed Heads, Australia.

 A side "Recorded at the Gaumont Cinema, Doncaster".

 The solid center image shows an un-dinked pressing which allows us to clearly see the unique to Pye 4 small marker lines around the 1 1/2 " large hole and press out center area (1 1/2" cube) to assist the type setters and printers in keeping any text out of this area and behind the lines. The other examples show the pressing after it has been through the dinker and has cut out seqments to leave a press out optional centre. Pressings that just have a 1 1/2 " large hole are not dinked but are simply die-cut. A Dinking cutter is a precision machine tooled die that cuts out the three (Philips/Phonogram) segments or four (EMI etc) segments to leave a intrinsick centre to pressed out IF required and thus devalue the pressing by up to 50% !
