 Yes earlybird, these are US labels as well as the others.
I've seen this design occasionally used for the 10 first Roulette regular releases with variant colors : maroon (with silver printings), orange or red labels. Only for Alfy Weatherbee's R-4005 had it's DJ pre-issue like this as far as I know.

 According to his biography on ITunes, Buddy was an actual lieutenant at the time of the record's release...he was spending a six-month tour of duty in the U.S. Army Tank Corps

25th Nov 2012

3rd May 2012
 Came across Buddy Knox through my Buddy Holly days and he made some great records alas i only have a handful of his 45s but a superb double CD The Roulette Years with great sleeve notes.He was due to visit Ireland back in 86 but cancelled and i still have a small poster for the gig.

3rd May 2012
 Bouncy Tex-Mex rockabilly number from Buddy


2nd May 2012
 Added variant A side label, and its corresponding B side. Both versions of the label bill the singer as Lieutenant Buddy Knox -- I guess they thought a rock-n-rolling military officer might impress people.
