N ow this is the sort of thing that drives me nuts: is it Rock’N Me (as the 45 rpm label suggests) or Rock N’ Me (see the back of Greatest Hits for that one) or Rock ‘N Me with a space between it (the Live! album this time)? Nobody seems to spell Shu Ba Da Du Ma Ma Ma Ma wrong after all. Just to muddy things up some more, there appear to be two different versions of the US single numbered 4323: one with Shu blah-blah whatever on the B side, and another with “Living In The U.S.A.” on the flip. The version I have with Shu Ba Dooby Doo on the B side was produced by Haworth Enterprises, so perhaps Capitol split the production duties or relicensed it or was shortly taken over in a hostile coup by someone whose last name was Haworth (as in “For God’s sake, Haworth, put down that stapler before someone gets hurt!”). Just a fount of information these days, aren’t I?
