Release date


Young Parisians

Released in Japan after the worldwide success of Adam and the Ants. London Records was a label headquartered in the UK which marketed records around the world. Originally formed due to a split in ownership between the British and American branches of Decca, the company became a semi independent label in 1979 (the KK after the label name stands for kabushiki kaisha which is the Japanese abbreviation for Co Ltd.)

The Japanese release differed mainly from all other releases as it had Lady as the A side and Young Parisians as the B side.

The cover featured a photograph of Adam and Matthew taken at London, Camden, Music Machine 1st November 1978 and also had the lyrics transcribed on the reverse of the sleeve which included such errors as “They love Patty cement” rather than Patti Smith.

This whitel label promotional copy has the following symbols on the record label to identify them from the standard release:
