The recording date for Cliff Richard & The Shadows' performance on The Royal Variety Performance 1962 is not clear to me. Some sources say April 29th, 1962, while others say October 29th, 1962. Which one is correct?

According to Wikipedia, the 1962 show at the London Palladium was recorded on 29th October and transmitted on 4th November.

Great minds, Iain!

FBI arrived today and I have already listened to it once. Very pleasant music! There's only one unpleasant surprise: the CD sleeve is bigger than the standard size and thus it doesn't fit into my CD rack. I'll find a place for it, though.

Your memory is fine. Although recorded in September 1960, FBI was not released until February 1961.

Must try not to stray off subject too much, but I gather there was thought of Shotgun, recorded just a week earlier, being issued as a single rather than FBI, but was instead included on the western themed EP, The Shadows, issued at the beginning of 1961.

That’s right, Malcolm Campbell’s guide says FBI was originally to have been on the EP. Victor Rust says the same and adds that Shotgun was being lined up as the single.
Shadows performance history could have been quite different!
