 According to Cash Box, this song charted 8-6-60, the same week as Neil Sedaka's You Mean Everything To Me. That would mean a July release?

Mod edit: date changed (better to use Make Correction button rather than Comments)

 Re. {Images #658869 & 658873} - That was a variant from Columbia Records' Bridgeport, CT plant. They printed the label two ways - tomato red with black print as there, and maroon with silver print (as I have). What's more, Columbia retained Capitol's custom matrix system for both sides, to the point their own lacquers bore the Capitol numbers stamped onto the deadwax. The Columbia lacquers don't sound nearly as compressed to death as those cut by Capitol itself (Scranton pressings with Keystone type represented here by {Images #528945, 528946 & 592176}, Los Angeles pressings with Bert-Co type represented by {Images #658863 & 658864}). As for the others:
- {Images #658838, 658840, 658847 & 658848} - from one of the Philadelphia area pressing plants
- {Images #658849 & 658850} - typeset by Co-Service Printing Co., Newark, NJ

 528945/946 depicts the 4th pressing of the release at the time the B side title was changed from "Hop Scotch Polka" to "Hop Scotch Hop." Other variations found are differences in text layout and the omission of the final "e" in "Revellettes."

 Jimmy recorded the song at age 15 in 1958, but it was not released until he was 17. The first three pressings of the original US single on Promo 1002 showed the flip-side as ‘Hop Scotch Polka’.

(definate Guy Lombardo overtones in that playing ! )

Can only guess that the 1958 pressing differed from the 1960 hit late release in Aug 1960 using same cat number, Anyone got a definative history
