I'm thinking that's the only two, but wasn't sure?

Yes, I was also thinking these are the only two. Occasionally you might see others but that are probably swaps.

I was talking to a dealer in Brighton recently who claimed that he bought a copy of Apple of my eye that came from the shop in this bag!

i always thought that any of them could come in the Yellow sleeve up until during 1974 when plain whites took over. Juniors Farm would be around the cut off point although plain white was certainly the more common by the time you get to 74.

However that does not mean they all came exclusively in the yellow bag, some titles could have come in that or plain whites, Live & let Die mostly comes in a black apple bag i believe though.

thks i was getting worried but this does back up my thoughts that the bag lived into 1974, for 40+ years up until now i never thought that that was open to debate !! phew .....

FWIW i do not think i ever bought a new 45 in a wings bag - mine were all plain white - but i was finding 74 singles in wings bags very shortly after, i used to have a sat job in a used record shop in the mid 70's and thats where i would see them

Still have a lot of lovely records i bought from that shop, blue text electric ladyland 40 yrs before i knew about the significance of a blue text, and got my first LIB box set with export parl sleeve, upgraded all the box bits since but still have that lovely export sleeve
