 One week on the Breakers list on 26 Nov 1977, peaking prematurely in 6th place.

 The push-out centre copies look like the initial EMI ones, so I'm assuming the solid centre copies were later outsourced contract pressings.

You're probably right, DIYC90, as the demo also comes with push-outs.

 Good point, Deltics - I've heard the story in relation to both records. However, every copy of UP 36348 that I have come across has been an EMI copy. If anybody out there has a variation from another plant, I'd be interested to see it :-)

 Too much information, harbottle!

 I thought it was What Do I Get?/Oh Shit UP 36348 that the pressing plant people refused to handle because of the title of the B side.

20th Aug 2011
 Given the title of the A side and at a track length of 1.58, it outlasts me by about 1:57 lol

20th Aug 2011
 If I remember correctly, staff at the EMI pressing plant refused to press the record. The push-out centre copies look like the initial EMI ones, so I'm assuming the solid centre copies were later outsourced contract pressings.

 Both push-out and solid centre versions issued denoting subsequent pressings, though which came first? Presumably the push-out version.
