 We need a list of SAM issues

 Stonestein - I have the one sided 'Tumbling dice'. It is very unusual in that the flipside has a chequered effect and the centre hole is the large US/European style. It has the standard UK label pasted on the A-side with 'Mono for radio' handwritten on it.

 I have both of these, the Rocks Off and the Shine a Light. There is also a 1-sided Tumbling Dice which I have never seen. I have always understood that these are test pressing prepared for advanced radio-play during the final stages of mixing the LP for the UK market. I know of only one other collector besides myself who has these.

 I remember reading about this disc in Record Collector back in the '80s, when they serialised a 'special pressings price guide' in the back each month. Prior to finding this page on the site I'd never seen even the slightest reference to it anywhere since - not even in RC - so had begun to think it had been listed by mistake. Obviously well rare then - as the Doctor found out when bidding!

Oh, one other thing - that same RC listing also mentioned a 7" of 'Happy'/'Shine A Light' - cat no SAM 4...

 Managed to find another copy on Popsike.com and they don't appear to be acetates.

Did find out that Rocks Off came out on 45 in Japan - a slightly cheaper way of acquiring it on 7" vinyl.

 "SAM" was a common WEA 'promo' serial #, once upon a time. Neat 45. Not an acetate?

 There seems to be very little reference to this single and presumably the stuck on labels suggest it could be rarer than a conventional Stones promo 45.

That certainly would explain me getting outbid by over £400 on Ebay.

Oops!
