Four EPs in unique covers were produced by London Uruguay from 1964 to 1966, the three first ones using color variations for a similar artwork. Promo copies were stamped and/or with promo stickers.
Records played at 33 1/3 rpm. The fragile paper sleeves would house plain grey labels which would turn to blue by the end of 1967.
The debut eponymous EP [DL 059] was the Uruguyan version of the British one, pretty unique for a South American country as nither Brazil nor Argentina issued it.
'Satisfaction' [DL 068] was a unique compilation of the US singles of the same name and 'Get Off Of My Cloud' with their respective B-sides.
The third EP 'Come On' [DL 073] was directly inspired from its Argentinian counterpart [33 DLM E 5565], while the last one [DL 080] was again a compilation of the then last two American singles '19th Nervous Breakdown' and 'As Tears Go By' and their flip sides [a very slight variation of this last picture cover exists depending on the way is displayed the catalogue number on front].
All releases from this country are rare and these four PS very much sought after.
Except for 'Have You Seen You Mother, Baby, Standing In The Shadow?', 'In Another Land' and 'Street Fighting Man' which does not seem to have been pressed in Uruguay, all the London US couplings from 'Mother's Little Helper' [77-014] to 'Honky Tonk Women' [77-058] were released, the first two even existing on both types of labels.
A few labels variations also occured, notably with 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' [77-037 - three different labels exist with minor differences], and 'Honky Tonk Women' which got nicely misspelled 'Honey Tonk Women' on its initial run.

Singles were all distributed into London or Clave company sleeves.
The Last Time' [77-009] was the first single issued in Uruguay, in 1965.
'Satisfaction' and 'Get Off Of My Cloud' were already featuring on an EP, therefore no single were issued for these.
As in Argentina, Paint It, Black' [77-012] was backed with 'Under The Boardwalk' in 1966. Rare first pressings on grey labels misspelled the band name 'Los Rollings Stones'.
