Collecting Jaywalkers Records
Despite The Jaywalkers releases having little effect on the National chart they put out twelve official UK releases with two of these being compilation appearences.
All are reasonably easy to locate it's just their condition that varies greatly, they are all hard to find in Mint/Mint condition, even if the seller say's that it is! Commercial copies are the most common for sale in Decca, Piccadilly or Columbia company bags. Best copies are normally demonstration sample copies also known as promotion (promo) copies. Harder to locate are advanced acetate copies with the details hand-written onto the centre label, we only know these to exist for the PYE/PICCADILLY releases. Danish picture covers also exist of the bands first two releases. These appear to be identical pressing numbers to the UK company bag releases but put out in a picture bag designed using company stock promotional photographs.
With regards to world-wide pressings we have found no evidence of any U.S. , Australian, Japaneses releases although we do know that India pressed and released Can Can '62 and this is believed to be the only Jaywalkers record released in that country.
We know of some official non-UK compilation appearences put out by Decca - see Compilations
Compact Disc Compilations come in a wide variety from official licenced Piccadilly, Decca label anthologies to some very poor quality bootlegs - see Compilations
Update: Cherry Red have released Jaywalkin' 2012 a because this is an official licensing of Jaywalker material it is classed as their 13th official UK release.
