Was it really that though ? Wasn't it something to do with not enough copies of golden brown being made available and /or another single (the Jam) getting released at the same time ?

They probably considered it.Going back to the brass section though,isn't it the case that "All day and all of the night "is spoilt by that bloody honking parping brass section which ruins an otherwise excellent cover.

They spoilt a lot of things back then by putting the bloody brass section in it - was Something Better Change also done complete with brass . How could they even consider that ?
