Post 369 - Dame Edna Everage - Disco Matilda

Edna's success grew in the UK throughout the 1980s and early 1990s however with semi-regular television shows. Her first specials were in 1978/1979 on the BBC. She became popular with broadcaster ITV after her performance on An Audience With Dame Edna in 1980. Edna made a cameo appearance in the 1978 film Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Also in 1979 Edna released a single here for you to download for Big Time Records "Disco Matilda" b/w "Disco Matilda (Inst.)" (BZS-312). The single was produced by Jonathan King, the instrumental B side is credited to The Everage White Band With ABBO. For more Edna check out post 327.

Thanks for this one.
The B-side seems to be at the wrong speed.
Was it pressed that way or was it one of those singles that was 45 on one side & 33 & a 1/3 on the other?


No Pflext that's the way they recorded it I think they were just having fun with it. A quicky B side as they say :)
