'Mother's Little Helper' from India | January 2012
Recently found is an original Decca 1966 Indian release of the single 'Mother's Little Helper', coupled with 'Lady Jane', bearing the extraordinary catalogue number '45-F.1'.
India released export versions of the singles 'Satisfaction' (c/w 'The Under Assistant West Coast Promotion Man') [45-F.12220], 'Get Off Of My Cloud' [45-F.22265], 'She's A Rainbow' [45-F.22706] and 'Street Fighting Man' [F.22825]. Despite an existing Decca export number [eg. F 22405 in Italy] for 'Mother's Little Helper', this late rarity was allocated the ultimate catalogue number in this country, leading to think that it was the first Indian Decca release [!].
This known copy with push-out center labels was found without company sleeve but was most likely distributed into a local Decca or neutral company sleeve.
Estimated value : 75 €
Many thanks to Johan van Breeden for this nice addition.
