 ...and here is the B Side - "Blue Champagne Cha Cha" by Marion Evans & His Orchestra.

 I have recently acquired a copy of this truly awful single - as a completest collector, I just had to have a copy. Is there possibly anything worse than a precocious child singing?

The record is mitigated by a half-decent cha-cha instrumental on the B-side.

 And 7 in the 10000 plus range, plus the elusive alternate version of HLU10388 - Roy Orbison 'Memphis Tennessee'.

 I'm still stuck on 17.

 This is one of only 29 released LONDON singles between cat. numbers HLE 9000 and HLU 10000 that I still need to complete the set.

 The most popular recording is by the Harry Simeone Chorale, who hit in the US in 1958 and every year up to 1962, reaching a high of No.13 in the first year of release.
Eric Jay’s version comes from the US Bullseye label (Bullseye 1021). Eric’s only claim to fame is that on January 12, 1959 he tied with the Harry Simeone version for 20th place in the Canadian charts .
The B side comes from Bullseye 1018, which was credited to Marion Evans.
When the disc was released in Australia on the Philips label, ‘Blue Champagne (Cha-Cha)’ was credited to Marion Evans and her Orchestra. Not a mention of Eric Jay.

 Now confirmed. It is the same song. Big hit in Chicago apparently. Hear it here: http://forgottenhits60s.blogspot.co.uk/2010/12/and-on-12th-day-of-christmas.html

 Pure theft then?

 KeithS: I think maybe it is....at least Billboard reviewers and chart compilers took it to be so. Woody Hinderling owned the label - he also did Dean & Marc's (Newbeats in waiting) 'Tell Him No'.

 Bullseye had 37 releases from 1955 to 1959. No significant artists appeared on the label.

 Bullseye is a new one on me. Another Christmas record?
