 I've just added a Parlophone 78 (the original?) of this. There is also a London 78.
Bewitched also appears on another London 78 (and a 45 EP as mentioned below REP 1011).
And... see Bill Snyder for full 45cat discog.

 See REP1011 ('Bewitched') for a similar lack of information.

 The complete lack of detail about the source of the original recording on this Parlophone label shows why so many US companies were annoyed that their trademark or company name was being ignored.
Both EMI and Decca thought it would be of no interest to a UK buyer to show such info but were finally pressured into adding "recorded by." in small letters.

 Its always confusing when established record companies cease to be and a completely different company stars using the self same name
Parrot was a popular label in the 78 era. A long time after came the UK Decca subsidiary with Tom Jones etc
More recently Sugarhill. Originally a rap label owned by Sylvia Robinson.....now a well respected bluegrass label
There are loads of examples of this

 Tower Records? Initially I thought that can't be right, after all Tower Records (the Capitol subsidary) didn't start till 1964. Intrigued I thought I'd have a dig around and I came across a Cashbox chart from September 1950:

And at No.19 is Bill Snyder with 'Bewitched' on Tower 1472. I looked around the Billboard site from the same period and there I found a full page ad for Tower Records which appears to have nothing to do with Capitol Records, so different label all together.

 Just checked.. this was leased from the US Tower label

 Languid romantic piano instrumental, with sparse orchestral backing - an interjection by the trumpets and saxophones late on tends to make you jump. 'Drifting Sands', however, is the standout track: an ambling Cowboy song, complete with the clopping of "horse's hoofs" and the occasion "coyote" howl - a little gem, in fact.
This single was first released as a 78 in 1950 (R 3302); this reissue would appear to have been one of the first batch of 45 rpm records on Parlophone, as witness the large centre hole.

 This is an example: a 1953 'B' side gets a member's sole rating.
