#Sg# Peppermint Circus // [A&M AM 016 / AMS 778]

A - Let me go (Ben Findon / Peter Shelley) ... arranged and produced by Mike Batt
B - School days (Ron Anderson) ... produced by Ben Findon & Peter Shelley

This very rare promotional 45 RPM single from A&M Records was pressed in Lebanon and has a white label.
For a period of about 8 years in the late 60's and the early 70's , records were being pressed in Lebanon under licence from the parent record companies. This stopped when the local civil war broke out in 1975 and was never resumed. Only very few copies of each record were pressed. So, if you find a record that is pressed in Lebanon, be sure that it is a very rare item.
