 My copy is a 4-prong paper label, but it differs in that it has the lighter Trojan label (and states "Keith Prowse Music Ltd/ KPM" on 3 lines) on the A side..and the darker label (and shows "Sparta-Florida Music Group Ltd" on 4 lines) on the B side. As far as I can tell, no other label scans shown are like this.

 I've now come across a second copy with a picture sleeve, and this time it's a regular stock issue.

 I thought Gladys Knight and the Pips made the definitive version

 John passed away last month. HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT was the disc which commenced and brought a halt to the man's chart career in Southern Africa. Chart peaks for his version of the song:

#6 - UK
#16 - South Africa.

First charted december 1974 in the UK.

Previous versions of the song to become a hit:

SAMMI SMITH - first charted USA January 1971. Global chart peaks:
#7 - USA (Record World); Australia alias Kammerra (Cameera) (aboriginal name for the land)
#8 - USA (Billboard)
#9 - USA (Cashbox)
#12 - Rhodesia
#19 - South Africa

#18 - New Zealand (1971)

PERCY SLEDGE - first charted April 1971 in the USA. Chart peaks:
#13 - South Africa
#115 - USA (Cashbox).

Presumably the song composer Kris Kristofferson made the first recording of the song.
