ON THE ITALIAN JUKE-BOX
BLACK OR WHITE
IN THE CLOSET
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
BLOOD ON THE DANCEFLOOR
You know, every vountry used to produce special editions in 7'' format, to promote the singles from an album and let it playing on the juke-boxes. Some countries like France and USA released sometimes these editions with a picture sleeve too; in Italy there was a chance to get the record with a sleeve not matching the artists' record, and with a big hole in the middle.
These releases, most of the items, came with plain white sleeves; if you want to get a special juke-box copy, I suggest you to be patient and look for a copy complete with the matching juke-box strip - that means you will have a COMPLETE record.
Sometimes, label A and label B didn't contain the same artists'songs. Most of the times both artists on the record came from the same label, but I even saw some splitted records with 2 artist from different production labels.
By the way, here we have some examples of italian juke-box releases:
THRILLER backed with
Paul Young's "Come back and stay"
DIRTY DIANA backed with
Sade's "Love is stronger than pride"
BLACK OR WHITE backed with
Claudio Baglioni's "Acqua dalla luna"
IN THE CLOSET (6:32" version!) backed with
The pasadenas' "I'm doing fine now"
YOU ARE NOT ALONE backed with
Toto's "I will remember"
BLOOD ON THE DANCEFLOOR backed with
Skank's "Garota nacional"
