The Rolling Stones left EMI for Columbia [CBS] in 1986.
'Harlem Shuffle' [07SP 940] is issued in standard picture sleeve in 1986 with an inner lyrics sheet. Preceeded by a yellow promo labels issue, a few copies of the track were also distributed on advance white labels into a unique promo-only fold-out 'Lifetime Achievement Award' cover stuck over a CBS company sleeve. Even rarer - 50 copies only would have been made - a 1-sided flexi acetate bearing the finished CBS label was made to be given free for a radio contest with the LP 'Dirty Work'.
