Notes

Brett Marvin And The Thunderbolts in disguise. ‘Shuffle’ was released under a pseudonym presumably because it wasn’t representative of the band’s usual Blues style, being a summery Pop record complete with accordion, zobstick and oil drum. It flopped for Sonet, but went to No.2 in the Charts the following year when Jonathan King licensed it to his UK label. ‘Ball’ is in a similar sort of vein but is far less catchy. The Thunderbolts / Dinosaurs made two more singles for UK, the first in a similar style, the second more restrained.

 Interesting interview with Jona Lewie on this record

 No, this was not a reissue, I purchased it first time round before its reissue a year later on UK Records.

 No, it pre-dates Jona Lewie's solo success. Sonet did issue what appears to be a cash-in, but it came in the form of an LP entitled 'Alias Jona Lewie' (SNTF-794), which collected together some of his solo singles and some Terry Dactyl ones - the sleeve notes of the LP refer to his 'subsequent work with Stiff Records'.
My apologies, incidentally, for putting information in the 'notes' part when I should have put it in 'comments' where it would have been seen. I was a tadpole at the time, and I didn't know any better...

 I suspect the issue on Sonet is a reissue to cash in on the chart success of Jona Lewie in 1980?

 Both sides in Stereo, even though clearly some copies say mono
