Description

AMS 8269 UK 7″ Christmas picture sleeve
A Squabs On Forty Fab / A Squabs On Forty Fab

A double A-sided promotional copy of the “Squabs On Forty Fab” b-side of Labelled With Love. It has a green and red picture sleeve with the drunken man from the front cover of the Singles LP, but subtly changed – he’s about to light a Christmas pudding. Released Christmas 1982. The matrix number (carved into the vinyl near the runoff groove) is AMS 8166 as the same pressing plates were used to make the b-side of “Labelled With Love”.

This picture sleeve appears to have been made in exceptionally small numbers and given to band members and immediate associates only. This double A sided single was pressed to promote the surprise radio hit of the b-side of Labelled With Love.

It was also more commonly available without a picture sleeve:
