 Rockin Bill is correct, Craig's (BandBox244) scans #968078 and #968079 are part of a four-page insert that was released for this record (see scan #473494 for the inside of insert)

The only picture sleeve (text sleeve) that came with this was vidman45's scan #473493, and it should be moved to the top position (IMO - be it ever so humble). I can supply a cleaner scan if one is needed....

 Men, help ! I am lost with this one :
I have all labels variant exept the vidman45 large logo.
I have a kraft parper sleeve that seems to be the same as vidman45's one.
But I never saw any picture sleeve or insert for this one.
Ain't Bandbox244 in fact an insert instead of a picture sleeve ?
Ain't vidman45's 473494 a promo flyer (paper, carboard) instead of an insert ?

 My bad. I read the sentence wrong. I thought that it was referring to Johnny Dee, not the label.

 It says that Colonial recorded it, not Johnny Dee.

 What doesn't? Read below the hole on the brown sleeve and such claim is made.

 According to the brown sleeve, it says that Johnny Dee did the original of "What it Was Was Football"? I thought Andy Griffith wrote and performed the original. How true is this sleeve claiming that he recorded this track and the other 2 that are listed?

 Twitster's scans - 538755 and 538756 - are the first pressing. Any pressings with "AM-PAR Record Corp." on them are 3rd pressings. Vidman's scans - 473486 and 473487 - are West Coast pressings, after the record started to become popular, therefore, those are 2nd pressings.

 Fine Rock-a-ballads featg Joe Tanner On Guitar, Eddie Cochran charted with a slower but very similar version of 'Sittin'

 I have to agree with MickeyRat. Linked biography would best.

 Not sure that this should be listed as "John D. Loudermilk" when the label clearly says "Johnny Dee". O.K. so everybody knows this is Loudermilk and it SHOULD be linked to his later records. It's just that there are thousands of other entries on this site where artists, well-known and obscure, are listed under their various pseudonyms, sometimes linked, sometimes not, depending on member knowledge, but this entry is setting some kind of precedent that makes it hard to know what the rules are.

 With acknowledgement to allan0318, here is a clearer B side image.
