Tkos 'fat Man' On Ten Star

If anyone has this old R&B hit, could they look at the matrix numbers and see if it's 104 A on one side and 104 A B-with the A scratched out a bit on the flip? And if that's the case are the sides musically identical. We have the masters and I think they put out Part 2 on both sides. On Part 2 the piano does not come in for about 15 secs, on what should have been Part 1 it comes in pretty much from the start, though quiet at first.

PS It was an R&B hit and if this is the case we will end up issuing Part 1 of a hit for the first time in 2014! Of course there may have been two pressings but the duplicate one I'm referring to is a stock copy not a demo.

TS 104 A on side 1

 

TS 104 B with an A scratched out next to it on side 2, not 100% certain it is an A as it's only the top of an A, sort of thing

I have it like this too on a 'Ten Star' issue

Definitely a crossed out 'A' 

Must be the same master plate on both sides as the Monarch Delta #59890 is the same on both sides with the same spacing between matrix etc

Same track on both sides, although i wouldn't have guessed that this it is really a 'part 2'?

Hope this helps

Cheers

Thanks folks that probably confirms it, there is little difference in style between the two parts but they managed to issue the B side only (Part 2 on both sides of the single-even though one side says Part One it isn't) and still get a hit. That means when we put out the real Part 1 it should chart higher!

PS If you want to make certain, just compare the first 20 secs of each side and they should be identical.

PPS All three copies on YouTube say Part 1 and play what is Part 2 on the masters.
