  1. The Bachelors on Excel 105 & 106 is an LA group. 106 is (A) T-e-e-e-e-ex-as
    and (B) I’m Lost
    picture of the A-side here: [[edit: indirect link removed]] don’t know where I found it, it’s not great

    • Thanks for the info. Didn’t find an Excel 106 label. Did find a UK seller listing as Te-e-e-ex-as but the item had been removed so there was no view. Can you confirm the dashes in Te-e-e-ex-as?
