 Better 'B' side label added. I remember reading about the 127 copies sold when I got this back in the mid '70s - seemed impossible... mainly, how did they know?! Forgot where I read that though.

 NME review from Apr 17, 1964 added. Not that this single went completely unnoticed.

This figure of 127 has been doing the rounds for years. I believe the figure to be much higher.The single was pressed as both solid center and 4 prog push out center.If the figure of 127 is to be believed why go to the trouble of pressing two formats for such a low number of pressings?
I have owned 7 copies of this record over the years upgrading to a near mint copy(push out center) 3 or 4 years ago.

 Wow, I knew it didn't sell many copies, but 127? Would you believe I paid £2 for this in 2005? Sadly, the price sticker was on the a-side label, hence the residue visible in the scan. The actual playing surface is near-mint, though. If it was dinked for a juke box, it can't have had many plays!

 I really like the B side (although it doesn't sound anything like The Kinks) but not enough to buy a copy!

Dave mentioned this single on the recent BBC4 doc - he said they were so thrilled to be on the same label as The Searchers and this was their attempt at a Searchers-esque pop single... before the infamous cone-slashing and discovering ''their sound'...

 According to what I read it sold 127 copies, but sales figures do tend to vary, even when they are as low as that.

I have only ever seen one copy of this single in my life. It was in a shop in Liverpool about 10 years ago, it wasn't in mint condition, and it was going for £80.

The B-side, You Do Something To Me, is also a good song, and was another rarity for years. Thankfully, both sides have now been revived as bonus tracks on the CD re-issue of the debut Kinks album.

 Is the legend about this selling a ridiculously low amount - 2 or 300 copies really true? I do rather like the A side... far from their best and not really Kinks style but a pleasant enough pop ditty nevertheless.
