AMERICAN red label on vinyl variant press  CANADIAN pressing 

You might have a Canadian press- "Get On Up"/ "Listen To Me" did come out on Bunky in Canada according to this survey (#18) -

Fine record, flip side 'Get on up' equally worth a listen. Mine is on Bunky too, red with black text and Bunky written vertically on the left in red text against a black partial circle background. But sorry, I don't know if it's Canadian.

The 45 on Capitol is "Reach out". From '69 according to Discogs

Used "Listen to me" from  '67 as b-side.

Not sure if same track or re-recorded it.

 get on up  was a massive pop hit in the USA  reaching no 11 and sold a million copies with several variations across the US and came out in several countries all over the world. bill sheppard who owned the masters and rights to the recordings just utilised the odd old track from the bunky days as flips to whoever was putting out his bands material at the time

First heard "listen to me" when Guy Hennigan played it on a Great Yarmouth weekender radio show, 90/91-ish. Covered as by the "Flights of Fantasy". Took me years to find out to what it was the b-side....
