Is this the first No. 1 with a different act on the B-side? Beverlys* All-Stars were Jackie Jackson, Winston Wright, Hux Brown, Rad Bryan, Paul Douglas and Winston Grennan, but none of them are credited on the A-side: 'The Aces' were backing vocalists.

*Not to be confused with Beverley Bevan, who was on #265

Yes, I believe this is the case.

There were two versions of the track on youtube - not sure which was the one used as the B side, but I went with the faster 'tempo' version, as I liked it more. Here's the other version, which sounds far too slow to me!

Also, if anyone's free on Wednesday 9th April 1969, Desmond's throwing a party -
