Hey Larry Mudd - I didn’t know that - cool!
I always assumed that the discrepency was a Brit-U.S. thing, where one record label on one side of the pond called 'em one thing, and the other called ‘em the other. Kinda like the Beatles’ albums getting different songs on 'em in the U.S.
Sweet trivia story - I have a friend who is a record producer. He is British and got his start in the early '80’s engineering records for folks like Erasure, Depeche Mode and Paul Carrack. Also, he started in music as a drummer. Anyway, he got a gig engineering a Sweet song - can’t remember which one, but not one of their hits. So my buddy had set up the instruments in the studio to get ready, including putting a pair of headphones by the drums so that Mick Tucker could have a “click track” fed into the 'phones (or “cans” as they are nicknamed). FYI, a click track is just that - a metronomic click so the drummer can stay in time while recording and not speed up or slow down.
So Mick starts laying down drum tracks with my friend engineering. After a bit, Mick takes off the headphones and says “have you got a click in the cans?” my friend says “yes” so Mick tried again, but with the headphones still on just looks up at my friend with a quizzical “well, I can’t hear anything” look on his face. So my friend exits the mixing room and enters the studio, takes the headphones from Mick and puts 'em on. He cues the intern still in the mixing room to turn on the click in the cans. And his head nearly explodes! The click is louder than bombs - Mick’s hearing was so shot that he was basically deaf and the volume was crushingly loud - my friend’s hearing was affected for days! He basically had to work something out with Mick using a flashing light on an electronic metronome.
