(from 45 Cat member Dave Gordon:

“I can’t check the exact chronology at the moment but from what I remember from at least “Bring It On Home To Me” onwards Sam wasn’t signed directly to RCA but to Tracey Productions, run by Sam and Alan Klein, who lease the masters to RCA for manufacture / distribution.

Apparently Klein did an audit of RCA’s books after “Twistin’ The Night Away” and found they’d been holding back on royalties due from the time he initially signed to RCA making them technically in breach of their contract with Sam. The SAR single was probably issued while Sam and Alan Klein were setting up Tracey Productions and renegotiating their deal with RCA.”)
