| ||That picture sleeve was hard to come by in Adelaide, because as far as I know none of the copies sold in the shops had it. I don't remember how I found out about the sleeve, but I went and got one from Astor's Adelaide branch office in (I think) Flinders Street, a poky little office at the side of the Philips Electrical office building (although the ground-floor front windows had a display of Astor-distributed albums on Motown, Casablanca, MCA, and whoever else they distributed at that point). Within a year, I think the higher-ups at Philips HQ in The Netherlands must have asked "why do we have two record companies in Australia?", and Astor firstly became "a division of PolyGram Records Pty. Ltd." in 1981, then the name disappeared completely by 1982 or 1983.|
Anyway, my copy of the single has the following etched in the dead wax:
Side A: "T-54317-A 414IT Rob"
Side B: "T-54317-B2 FH 11/9"
FH I believe had the first name Frank, but I forget his last name.
