I've seen dozens of Philippines singles in passing, and I think this ebay listing is the first time I've seen a pushout with the center intact.

Most of them were cut with the wide jukebox hole, but a quick perusal revealed a pushout missing the center. No big insight, just caught my eye.

It seems that the philippines was a law into itself regarding record releases, with some unique couplings. I notice that there is a number of Apple singles up for £100 atm. Been lucky to get badfinger without you for around £20, waiting for Take it all. Philippines post is so slow. I think that they give it to a small child to walk it all the way!

I haven't looked at it systematically, but my sense is that there were a handful of countries that released numerous pairings that were not found in the UK-US catalogs, often featuring songs that were not released as singles at all in UK-US. Presumably this is because the record market in some countries continued to me more driven by singles than LPs. Others that come to mind are Nicaragua and Venezuela.

Chile used the Apple numbers without the R prefix randomly on solo releases and the likes of M.Hopkin
Goodbye 8, power 26, lamb 34, give me love 39, boogaloo 33 j.farm 48. There are many more, these I have.

If you are looking for substitutes for UK unreleased discs the South Americas is a goldmine. Witness love is strange Mexico do
