Below is a different picture sleeve. Thanks to Bengofury for the images.





General: The label says, that this single is from 1973, but the matrix reveals, that the pressing is from 1977. Italian records very often have the date and year pressed between the run-out grooves.
The matrix information on this single is: 6052 334 a 1 520 221077. The last six digits tells, us that the matrix was made October 22nd 1977.
So why did this single get a rerelease? The printing on the sleeve shows the connection to an italian television program called "L'altra domenica" (Italian for "the other sunday"). I searched the internet and found video clips from this program on youtube, and guess what.. The title music to this program is "All Nite Long".
This single was also released as a promo with "All Nite Long" on both sides found here, and as a promo with a different artist on the B-side found here. The original 1973 release is found here.


Song Info:

Frank Zappa produced both sides.
