Vinyl Junkie and Original Record Sleeve Lovers, it's Bop Quiz Time!
THE AUTOMOBILE SONG
I purchased this 45 from a friend back in 1978, and he told me that he had bought it from a record shop in London at the time of its release in the U.K. in 1955 (I've researched a bit and it came out in January 1955). He also told me that it came in the same brown paper sleeve as pictured above. I've since discovered that U.K. Parlophone had their own 45 record sleeves from 1953. So which of these sleeves do you think should have been wrapped around the platter?

A COMMENT OR TWO WOULD BE REAL COOL...
Thanks for all the comments and emails. It seems that the brown paper sleeve did come with the 45. But it still makes me wonder why UK Parlophone issued single sleeves from 1953, but why didn't it come with a sleeve? The pictures below are from the 45-Sleeves.com web-site, go and check it out if you haven't already done so.
