Notes

Rarity grading is out of ten with 10 being rarest and based on collecting experience, it does not reflect desirability. Some of the post 76 releases are now rarer as they sold in smaller quantities.

• Only three singles lacked picture covers, at a period when EMI Germany was trying to cut back. For   the others, picture covers were often retained for the life of the single.
• German sleeves were printed on thin glossy paper so are harder to find in good or better condition.
• The UK style Purple label design was abandoned after just one single because the centre areas were   normally punched out, spoiling the design.
• Information on any titles not listed would be welcome.
• Reunion singles will be listed in due course.
