And no I've never seen it on 78. London was sending out all its promos on 45s 
by that time..good thing, too, since half the 78s were arriving broken for a 
couple of years. (Pressing was divided between Compo and Victor, and the Compos 
almost always broke in transit.) And I feel like I gotta travel on.
