When I bought this single back in the 70's, the 'B' side had a song called Amoureuse, by Kiki Dee. However, the label on both sides said Don't Go Breaking My Heart. Before I played the 'B' side, I thought it might just have been an instrumental of the 'A' side, but nope. Twas Kiki Dee singing Amoureuse. Odd dont you think? Production error perhaps?

Not on this one mushroom. It's definitely Amoureuse, labelled as DGBMH.

I have a similarly mislabelled single by a different artist. If you look closely at the edge of the record there's an etching of numbers. The A side will have a different number to the B side.

Not uncommon, according to Record Collector. Mine isn't on their list of valuable examples.

Woo hoo
Nobody knows it
Given the label tho it sounds like a collectors item
Whatever the case may be, you're lucky as Amoureuse is a stunning song. The original French language version by Veronique Sanson is lovely too.
