Get smart

In the March 29 issue, Get Smart printed a letter saying that the ‘B side of “Relax” by Frankie Goes To Hollywood was “Ferry Across The Mersey”. My ‘B side is “One September Morning”. How come?

The answer is that the 7" and 12" versions have different ‘B sides. The 7" has “One September Morning” while the 12" has “Ferry Across The Mersey” and another version of “Relax”. This of course means you have to fork out twice to get everything. Record companies call this “marketing”.
