The first two record covers with black RCA Victor logo are not documented anywhere else and are extremely difficult to find. I had emailed, Paul Lichter, who authored "The Boy Who Dared To Rock" among many books, publications, and website achievements. I am honored to have received a couple of emails from him. Paul Lichter wrote in part:
"Many thanks. I have visited your site and read your article, quite fascinating. I think it is great that you are the true student on what I consider to be a great art form. People like yourself rekindle my interest, thank you." "Your Good Luck Charm discovery certainly proves my theory" that different versions for the compact 33 and their 45 counterparts exist with at least two variations.

Also released in Compact 33 as Good Luck Charm / Anything That's Part of You.
Re-released by RCA Records on 45 RPM as Good Luck Charm / Anything That's Part of You on the Gold Standard Series label.
