I have this question that's been bugging me for 40 years now and no one can answer me.

I have the single Back off Boogaloo / Blindman with a blue apple lable. The A-side has the full apple, mentioning the song , the writer , 1C 006-05028, 1972 etc.

The thing is: if you put it on the record player you hear the song "Carnaval in Rio" by a German seventies Schlager artist Heino.

Is this an extremely rare misprint? I thought it came from a collection of Jukebox-singles. Has that got anything to do with it?

Can anybody please help me on this?

Have you tried carefully steam-peeling off the label? Perhaps someone carefully affixed the wrong label onto the record, over its previous original label?  I know that seems highly unlikely, but you never know...

Does it have the wrong song on both sides or only one? 

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

Is "Carnaval in Rio" a better song? If so i'd say you got a better deal.

To continue my mysterious tale: The B-side Blindman is the genuine blindman. Peeling of lables is therefore no good idea.

Heino is a good singer though

That tends to corroborate my theory, then...

I'm not German, but I like Heino's stuff quite a lot and listen to him regularly. Carnival In Rio is a good song, but his better known songs are Blau Bluht Der Enzian (I think I've spelt this wrong) and Die lustigen Holzhackerbub'n. He sells more records in Germany than The Beatles, believe it or not.

"Duit On Mon Dei"
