 I actually do like many of his recordings, and my family were big fans when I was growing up, so heard them a lot, but this particular record has always been like fingernails down a blackboard to me, it just grates on my nerves something fierce, lol. Apologies to anyone who likes it.

 kevhutson, tell us more. Your reaction seems a bit over the top for this particular song as well as the relatively restrained vocal by Tom Jones. Your loathing this song "with a vengeance" has truly piqued my interest. Also am curious if you like any Tom Jones recordings.

 I absolutely loathe this song with a vengeance, and this awful, dreadful version of it in particular!

 Yes - the F 22000's were releases whose export outside the UK was restricted and in some cases forbidden completely. See my recent comment here.

 "and the F2's were for export. I know a few F2 releases slipped through the net and charted in the UK though (including both Los Bravos UK hits), having said that. Also, were the F2 records that sold here largely (or solely) recordings made outside the UK?"

If anything the F2xxxx were NOT for export because they were generally licensed to Decca for the UK only. The exact restrictions would vary depending on the originating
label's contract with Decca.

Take Los Bravos as an example - Decca could not sell their records in Europe because
they were signed to other, unrelated, labels in other territories, in Spain they were issued on Columbia,in France they were on Barclay.
Decca's deal for Los Bravos seems to have been for the UK
and North America allowing Decca to issue their records in the US on one of their affiliated
labels, in this case Parrot.

 The single on F12516 was for export only and had "If I Had You" on the B side.

Which is quite strange, since Decca's F1 series were, I thought, intended for UK sale, and the F2's were for export. I know a few F2 releases slipped through the net and charted in the UK though (including both Los Bravos UK hits), having said that. Also, were the F2 records that sold here largely (or solely) recordings made outside the UK?

 The copy I've got is the same as Cronkey's, without the tax code anywhere on the label and not stamped on the run grooves.
