Commercial release in proper sleeve featuring a picture of the JAMS-defaced billboard (“SHAG SHAG SHAG”) featuring the face of controversial UK policeman James Anderton. MC5/Beatles samples were removed from the intro. Samantha Fox samples still intact, though.
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 now.
The scratch mix, which features various Beatles cut-ups and the chant “shag, shag, shag!”, had been boycotted by labels worried about the legal implications. But now The Jams – who are rumored to be former Echo And The Bunnymen manager Bill Drummond’s alter ego – have doctored their master tapes and re-pressed the record, which will be released later this month on their own Sound Of Mu label through The Cartel.NME, 9 May 1987
