 The other side was a version of a Merle Haggard country hit, written by Liz Anderson the mother of Lynn "I Never Promised You A Rose Garden' Anderson. The full title of the song is "(All My Friends Are Gonna Be) Strangers"

Going by the matrix numbers "Strangers' was actually the A-side which would make sense given Emerald's usual sort of releases.

Apart from the writer credits of "Answer ..'" being different to the Drifters single the publisher credit's different - Hyde Park Music for the Mad Lads where the Drifters credits 17 Savile Row Music. I'm pretty sure Hyde Park was owned by the Solomon Brothers - it's the publisher credited on a lot of Them's releases as well as a lot of Emerald releases. Things that make you go "hmmmm".

 I think it is a cover of Answer the Phone by The Drifters AT 4019. Bert Berns produced both records but Jerry Wexler and Johnny Moore wrote the song. The American Atlantic 45 of the Drifters lists Bert "Burns" as the producer.

 The composer of the A side was infact Bert Berns and because of an American act with the same name they changed their name to Moses K And The Prophets.
