 The matrix number will give you no indication whatsoever about what the 'A' side might be

 Also issued [same cat. no.] in late 60s with boxed London logo. A copy [poorly scanned] sold on ebay for about a fiver, anyone got a copy for a decent scan?

 Thanks Bill. I knew it is not an easy difference to describe.

I have checked my 78's and the latest black and gold London 78 I have is HL8132.

 Yes Tony P, I have 8886 on 78 by Ritchie Valens, 'Bluebirds over the Mountains', the label on this one is the same colours as the 45s ie definite silver and jet black. whereas the normal silver top 78 label is a sort of very very dark brown with a different shade of silver, almost shades of sepia, if you get my drift. The other difference is the old label is shiny, Ritchie's is matt like the 45s

 I will check the number of the latest black and gold London 78 that I have.
I used to have a couple of the very last of the London 78's including Keeley Smith (8984). I remember that the label for these was very slightly different. Does anyone else remember this difference?

 Early HL 8000 series 78's continued with the same black labels as the L500's and eventually changed to silver tops.
The silver tops then started as "London-American" rather than just London.
The design of the 45 label followed a similar pattern but the changes happened much later

 John Lee Hooker's Too Much Boogie is all black. 78 only of course.

 All the London 78s I've seen have been siver tops

 No, the 78 by the HL 84xx stage would always be silver top. I have elarier 78s bought new at the time with silver top. Only the very early HL80xx seem to be all black.

 I may get banished for mentioning this but I've just bought the 78 of this single (fabulous sound quality) and my question is, with a black and silver label quite like (but not the same as) the round centre 45 label pictured above, would my 78 be a later issue, and would there have been an earlier 78 release with a black label (like the tri centre version)? Perhaps one of our London label experts (Mr McKee?) might be able to assist?

 One of the great releases - the B side matching the A for quality.
