Two months after the original version of their debut single had caused a minor stir with record companies The JAMs released All You Need Is Love (106bpm), an edited version with the MC5 and Beatles samples removed from the intro.
Unlike the original whitelabel promo this version was housed in a proper sleeve showing the picture of a JAMs-defaced billboard (“SHAG SHAG SHAG”) featuring the face of controversial UK policeman James Anderton on the front.
With the samples in question removed – and probably some help from the publicity generated from the original version – it was less of a problem to find a proper distributor for All You Need Is Love after initally being turned down.
