Despite the fact that many of the picture sleeves reversed the A-B sides,
all singles charted the normal A-sides.
However some of the singles charted as double A-sides and are noted below.

Australian Chart Book 1940-1969 by David Kent.

Australia is the only other country to issue "Porpoise Song"
in the original black picture sleeve. Its heavy card stock survived much better
as the USA paper sleeve always shows more ring wear.
