A Record Collector's Guide


Dear Josie, Love Robyn b/w The Last Boy

Mud Records MUD-018, released 1996

Great single. Apparently, the A side got some good press while I had my head in the sand. It seems there were two releases for this single. By random chance, I happened upon two different versions. They are almost identical, save for the URL on the back of the sleeve and the insert. The earlier one has a "" website listed, and the later one had the full Parasol Records address, along with an updated "" URL (see pic below). Both releases contained Parasol catalogue inserts. The earlier one was on beige paper; the later one was on white, and had a more extensive catalogue listing. The vinyl was translucent black.
