Johnny Too Bad | Sweet Little Mystery

1 Oct 1980
The Bottom Line:

Italian only single that easily could have become a hit.

Rather late single from the Grace And Danger album. This unique single was released in Italy probably months earlier than an identical one in the UK with the tracks in reversed order.
Catalogue and mold numbers of this release clearly point to the original Johnny Too Bad single.
My guess is that the Italian release was an original idea of the Italian Island department, followed up a few months later by the UK division. The Italian idea for this double A-side might qualify as good but one can wonder if Sweet Little Mystery would not have been a better choice to promote in Italy.
