I’d just like to know if it was ever booted?

Think it’s fair to say that is 1000% a bootleg...

Its a common 45, goes for 200/250 to 300 these days I think,  that said it’s in vinyl and styrene, and the styrene ones are hard to get in good condition, one will come up...

It came out on Stardust with Tony Middleton / Ray Pollard ‎– Drifting / It's A Sad Thing 

Stardust Records ‎– URS 007

There was a guy who used to print out a real lookalike label and paste it over Stardust issues, easy way to check is listen to what does yours play on the flip side, if it's Tony Middleton Drifting you have yourself a Stardust copy covered over, but if it plays "All the Things You Are" well it's not the Stardust record but not sure where that leaves you ?

... puzzling...If they went to the trouble of making a lookalike label,why didn’t they use the correct number?....very strange...

They simply took a scan of the Jive Five and doctored artist and titled in. Even the production credits are still the same as the Jive Five 45.
