Mod label -

As Arthur Greensalde was involved, it's an UK production isn' it?

It's an interesting one.
The UK release is 1967 as is the US MOD release. However both of the the US releases couple Picture Me Gone with I'm Gonna Make Me Love You - which was her next UK single from early 68..

Just had a google around and funnily enough, this is all explained in some detail on Wikipedia.  So with ref to own knowledge and Discogs, the sequencing was:

'Picture Me Gone' 7 first released UK (plus Holland and Germany) 1967. UK recording. Original release.

Tapes then sent to USA and 'I'm Gonna Make You Love Me' promoted / released in US (with 'Picture..' as b-side) On Mod (10,000 copies?) first, then wider release on US Phillips. (Highest chart position, April 1968)

'I'm Gonna Make You Love Me' then released UK after it was a US hit. (1968).

Supremes + Temptations smash hit version of,  'I'm Gonna..' was in late 1968.

Funnily enough, I found a mint UK copy of 'Picture Me Gone' (for 50p!) a couple of years ago in a local charity shop in amongst a few Dusty Springfield 7"s. Always wondered how they got there...
