THE SUNDOWN PLAYBOYS

The Sundown Playboys were a French-language cajun band from Louisiana.
A pre-existing single was brought to the label by Ringo Starr.

There are no Production credits on either side record label.

Originally released as a 7" single with a picture sleeve.
The front of the sleeve has a picture of the band, the rear has the lyrics.

This scarce recording was also issued by Apple Records as a very rare TEN INCH vinyl disc playing at 78 rpm.

The original disc was issued in a very limited quantity on the custom Apple label with 'Mfd in U.K.' label text.
The official machine stamped information in the runout groove of the 78 is:
Side 1 - APPLE 78 44 A-1U and tax code 'KT'.
Side 2 - APPLE 78 44 B-1U and also 'KT'.

The 10" vinyl disc came in a pink and white printed sleeve as can be seen above.

Note that Morrisey recorded a version of the A-side for his DMC - "Under The Influence" album.

To see where this single release sits in the apple releases, see the Apple Records Single Listing.
