This is My Bonnie in Stereo as listed on the label. Also it has the spoken intro in English (“My Bonnie lies over the ocean.....”). So all 3 My Bonnie versions in Stereo from Germany on 3 Polydor singles are confirmed. Polydor 2135501 (English intro, 2:41) and 2042245 (no intro, 2:06)

Plastic injection labels.
With regard to the first injection moulded singles. According to an article on page 1 of Billboard magazine for 16th Oct 1971: 'Phonodisc is experimenting with a new production technique, painted labels, pioneered by French company SFP. The new process prints the labels directly on the records, cutting out the production costs of printing labels on paper. The new technique at present is limited to selected Polydor and Philips singles, and has been used on the New Seekers' 'Never Ending Song Of Love' and St. Cecelia's 'Leap Up And Down'. A specially adapted injection moulding machine is used in the process. Tony Muxlow, Phonodisc general manager, said "There is a cost saving using the method but at the moment it is very much at the development stage. It is confined to the Polydor and Philips labels, but we certainly won't be using it throughout our releases at the moment." The painted labels process will be used on the forthcoming Slade single, 'Cos I Luv You', to be released by Polydor this week.'
