Impossible Years (Baby Baby Single)

Here's another re post, it's a request for Wally from The Beautiful Music.Com. They have a number of cool releases, go check them out.The Impossible Years were from Philadelphia, they formed in 1978. They originally called themselves The Jags, but after hearing a single from the English band of the same name, decided to rename themselves after The 1968 Movie. I recently discovered this record comes in two different versions. One with print on the label, and (I suspect) no pic sleeve; and a picture sleeve version with the labels having pictures of a couple, and a sunset. Does anyone know which came first??? If you'd like to read more about the band, I found this page at The Mod Pop Punk Archives .. I also stumbled upon a blog called Tapewrecks, that has some recreated lost Jags tracks, their definitely worth a listen.

Many Thanks!

I have since got in contact with Todd and will pass on your question to him. He has been so kind as to record a cover of Television Personalities "Someone To Share My Life With" for our 10 volume tribute series.

Todd sent in the tracks from the Scenes we'd Like To See and a buch of unreleased demos: The Impossible Years
So Good!
I'm looking forward to Todd's TVP cover too.

The sleeveless pressing with black & yellow labels came out first, then the wordless labels with the fold-over picture sleeve. Some "promo" copies were also distributed later, meaning first label but with later sleeve (so college radio d.j.'s would know what song to announce).
