When Polydor took over Bronze from EMI by the end of 1980, the Louie Louie single
was still in print. After this a few details was changed. The sleeve was printed on a much thinner paper.
The label was not longer a paper lable but instead the wording was stamped into the vinyl and the centre was
painted green. The catalogue number also had an additional number within brackets, (2101215). There
were some minor changes in the wording, amongst others you can read "Original sound recording made by
Bronze Records Ltd". On the back sleeve beneath the Bronze logo on the bottom it doesn´t say EMI anymore.
Instead it says "Available from Polydor". Later copies were released without picture sleeves.
My guess is that these green label copies are later pressings that the "Original sound
recording made by Bronze Records Ltd" . They were probably made in 1982. They seem to be quite unusual so
they were not probably in print for very long.
