Re-promoted in a picture sleeve in 1977 after its use in a BBC TV series. Re-entered the chart and reached number 3.
Release date from booklet 'The New Singles' No. 588.

 I've no information to the contrary about the release in the picture sleeve, but I do know the re-entry peaked at number 3 in the UK in 1976. I don't think the Riva release actually charted, all entries have been under the K16600 issue, even the one in 1987, in a different picture sleeve.

 Like "telegramsam" I too prefer the B side. To me "Sailing" is just a dire dirge..one of only 2 of Rod's hits I've never liked (the other I think is an insult to Scottish football supporters everywhere).."Ole Ola" Bleugh!..but for some strange reason I still want that one for my collection..Why? I've no idea, to be honest..

 Dead wax: (Record scan 3) A side only "Melys".
A 2nd. version (Record scans 1 & 2) has "Melys" on both sides.

 I think my brain is turning to mush looking out for label variants, do these things really matter, all the text is identical to another one up here except mine is a non push-out.

 Blue vinyl limited to 3000 copies for the crew of HMS Ark Royal, the visit was in December 1978 not October. This copy is signed "To Dougal's Mum Rod Stewart
That's my Mum in case anybody is wondering.
I even ended up sing Sailing with Rod on prime time TV, shame Rod forgot the words

 I much prefer Stone Cold Sober to Sailing - Cropper talked about this on Johnny Walker's Sounds of the 70's last week. Jolly good tune all round.
