This entry used to start with, "Sadly, this was the Whigs' final album." Who knew? All original vinyl versions were released on various incarnations of Columbia Records. All were on black vinyl. It has been difficult to predict how much this record will sell for. Sometimes it goes for very little, sometimes a fair amount. There has been some confusion about the European vinyl releases for 1965. I had once heard that there were UK and Austrian versions of this one, but I think that they are one and the same. The European LP gives no indication of country of origin on the sleeve or on the label, and the Austrian and UK versions of the CD had the same catalogue number.
In 2010, Music on Vinyl, a Dutch imprint, reissued 1965 on 180g vinyl. It was released as a two-record set. The second disc contained the bonus tracks from the Somethin' Hot and Australian 66 CD singles. No new material here, but, hey...it made it a lot easier to get ahold of "The Singer." A significant percentage of the U.S. copies have the upper lefthand corner of the sleeve clipped - presumably, these were mostly used as promos.
