Okey Cokey

One member of 45 Cat has posted that he actually owns a copy of this record!




UK, December 7th, 1979 - 7"
Barn Records - BARN 011 / Lyntone - LYN 7650/7651

This Party-type record, released in time for the Christmas market was the eighth single on their Barn label, and it would be their last on this label.  The A-Side was originally going to be called, "Rockin' Okey Cokey" and was not to be found on any album, at that time.  The B-Side, "My Baby's Got It" was taken from their then current "Return To Base" album.  The record reached Number 83 in the UK Singles Charts.






December, 1982
Speed Records - SPEED 201



The song was re-issued three years later, in 1982, on the Speed label, but this time around, it featured a Live version of Get Down And Get With It on the B-Side.  It was released in 7" and 7" Picture-Disc formats.
