I thought that someone in York was going to puch me once, when I suggested his copy may be a boot. I was trying to explain the difference in colour of the print on the label. I'm right in thinking that mine - with sort of inky blue print - is the real deal aren't I?

The original is dark green with dark blue type in virtually the same tone. Not the wisest choice for legibility etc. Perhaps that's why it's so rare: DJs couldn't read the label.

Just to confirm that the original of this has the blue script boots are black script, very hard to find as pointed out even on a pressing, picked mine up a couple of years ago from a gentleman in Sweden of all places for a very reasonable $250.00 which i understand to be a bit of a bargain, played it out again several times and it seems to go down very well.

Took me over twenty years to locate a copy, never see this listed so possibly a genuine rare 45. Has to be a solid £500.00 record and worth every penny for a solid double header.

And to think I couldn't get £15 for it when I sold up in '79. Partly makes up for a load of stuff that I did sell for around £20/30 Like Sam Ward, Al Williams, Morris Chestnut etc etc.

A familiar story, I know, but still something that gives me sweats when I think about what a Young fool I was.

Don't let Christian H hear you say "...of all places, Sweden"!

He already told me when we spoke this summer at the NCSC allnighter in Manchester. The boots are styrene are they not? At least that's what the one I saw on ebay looked like, not totally sure, but I do know the originals are vinyl.

Just noticed another thing while comparing the scans:

Orig credits writer as A Collins while boot says A Valier.

Why on earth would they do that??

Definitely vinyl like you say, I must have been mistaken, or there is yet another boot pressing? Whatever the case the boot is quite easy to spot when compared to to the original.
