First Press, Injection Label

The pictures below are of my first, and only, press copy which has the barely readable matrix numbers 2001699 A//1 and 2001699 B//1. The record is in excellent condition, both visually and playing wise. It is housed in a Polydor sleeve – there wasn’t a picture sleeve for this single.

Estimated Value : £7– £10
