pretty sure it's this one which i have, but the label doesn't specifically say side A or B or 1 or 2 (just the circle with the upsidedown triangle), so maybe that's the confusion if you just played the acapulco side 1st. don't know....bigfatlove could prob confirm and/or correct.

don't know i've had this record since 88-89 so not sure if there was another error pressing.
Wow, I never noticed that. I've had this single forever as well and knew that the "B-side" was the a cappella (Acapulco) version, but I didn't even notice the weird labeling. Not only are the A/B sides not labeled, the tracks are really weirdly numbered. The a cappella version has no track number and is on its own side, while the album version is labeled track 1 and the instrumental is labeled track 2. I could totally see how someone could pick this up, see the side with just one track on it and no track number, and think that was the A side.
