Important Message Re: Side II

I help out at a charity shop. Today, while organising the many hundreds of LPs that have been donated recently, I found this empty inner sleeve. Of all the possible ways to communicate the message, its author chose this one.

I'm left to wonder what the record might have been. And why this sleeve was given to a charity shop.

The single is definately Tiger Feet by Mud. The B-side of course being Crisp Dinner Jive.

He's right. It is fucked.

Surprising how you just know it was a bloke who wrote that...

Ohhh, I wondered where that had got to! I'd thought it mysterious that only one side of this blank sleeveless record worked.
But now I know why.

I have a cheap, rubbish CD burner, so many of my self-created CDs have comments like "TRACK 8 FUCKED - DO NOT PLAY" scrawled on them. Despite the similarity in wording, however, I am confident that the empty sleeve is not one of mine.

I reckon it's 'Bat Out of Hell' by everyones favourite fat idiot 'Meat Loaf'.

If it is then it's safe to say that on the other side of the sleeve it says "Ditto side 1"

Maybe not.........

Dear Sir / Madam

I am appalled by the language shown by this previously 'for all the' family site. Many a good time has been had laughing as a unit at your marvellous fun filled postings on culture, popular and other wise but this fould and / or abusive sweartone has simply pushed my patience (and for that matter, my wife's - and she is a practicing diabetic) too far.

You will be hearing from Christopher Timothy (from Doctors) immediately, sir.

Well. It certainly communicates a message.
