 An utterly ridiculous choice of songs for a single for this time. The A side is charming but doesn't really work or belong to this era... with singles like this, it's little wonder the RCA era is not held in high regard. The B side is one of the very worst songs of the era. Difficult to listen to at 33 1/3 rpm, let alone 45.

 My copy of Hell Raiser by The Sweet is on this style label, but deffo 100% bought in the UK...well, Billingham...

Sounds somehow like an excerpt of Bertolt Brecht/Kurt Weill's The Threepenny Opera, not much like rock music.

 The A-side is actually the original demo version of "Mirror Of Love", with Ray Davies playing nearly all instruments (apart from mandolin which was left to Dave Davies, and brass contributions), the same that was eventually used on the Preservation Act 2 album.

A second version of "Mirror Of Love", recorded in a full band version in June 1974, was pressed in the UK and released on 26 July 26, 1974 on RCA LPBO 5042, the same version as used for the US single release.

Apparently, not many people in the UK did notice either of them at all.

 This is a confirmed UK release despite pressings only made in France...according to Doug Hinman (Hey Doug!) there are no known UK pressings of this..BEATLEJOHN
