John Wayne / Nightline (Canada)

Rare Canadian promotional release on 12 inch vinyl at 45rpm of John Wayne / Nightline (Island IS 867). Released 1 March 1986.

Both songs are taken from John’s Piece By Piece album. The release date is unclear however IS 866 (The Waterboys This Is The Sea taken from the album of the same name) was released in November 1985 so it is likely John Wayne / Nightline (Island IS 867) was released in March 1986 to promote Piece By Piece.

Apparently withdrawn after just a few copies were sent out to radio stations and journalists allegedly at the insistence of Island Records lawyers who feared legal action as a result of the song title.
