Whilst many were the same as their UK counterparts, some had alternate 'B' sides, some were coloured vinyl and the odd one was translucent. They were interesting (especially to completists) but the singles that a young KJS wanted were the singles that were unique to the States and not issued here in the UK. As far as this writer is concerned, there were half a dozen singles that I sought after and eventually held on tight to.
Finally we come to "Secret Messages" and what many British fans thought would've been a good choice as a single in the UK. "Stranger" (Jet/CBS #ZS4 04208) is the sixth US only single released (as opposed to the title track elsewhere) which, sadly, also did not make the Billboard Top 100. It was however issued in Holland (Jet/CBS #A4070) as a rather attractive third* single from "Secret Messages".
*Note that "Stranger" was not the fourth Dutch single as originally stated in this article due to "Four Little Diamonds" (Jet/CBS #A3869) being pressed in Holland for release in Germany. Thanx to my good friend Patrik Guttenbacher of FTM Germany for the clarification!
