 Classic pop here.

 It's not on any vinyl 7" (AFAIK) - here's the instrumental version of 'Lollipop':

Very nice, and allegedly with the original harmonica solo which was replaced on the single version.

19th Nov 2012
 Chris Blackwell, Harry Robinson and Chris Peers formed B.P.R. Productions.

 I tell you what, 3 or 4 pronged, either way... it still sounds brilliant!

1st Feb 2012
 i have a four prong label issue but at different angles more 1 4 7 and 10 instead of 12 3 6 and 9

25th Jan 2010
 4 prong Decca presses are pretty common (about a quarter of my mid 60s Fontana 45s?)... same goes for CBS. If possible, I think this site should always try and collect scans of original 3 prong pressings for all Philips labels.

MH - 'later' pressing here just means weeks or months - they will have been on sale when the record was charting so your Mam will have bought it 'at the time'...

23rd Jan 2010
 Note music publisher, Fontana, 'Copyright Con'.--- Decca 'Planetary Nom'. I would guess the Decca sub con press was completed later when composers provenance was established. Additionally, Decca pressed quite a few LP's for Philips/Fontana...

 3-prong (textured labels) is deffo first press...

23rd Jan 2010
 Going to check this out as I swear my "My Boy Lollipop" bought at the time (although it's my Mams technically) is a 4-prong centre. Several 1964 Fontana 45's are 4-prongers.

23rd Jan 2010
 Lighter blue 4 support centre, later Decca sub con press. 3 support original in house Philips stamping. (There may be more info in the centre run-off)

23rd Jan 2010
 Recently added labels likely to be early pressing, and the lack of composer and publisher credits due to uncertainty over who wrote the song. Different centres also. This song has its own Wiki page.

23rd Jan 2010
 Alternative labels without production credits and no composer details on A side uploaded.
