Added, thanks!

I'm not 100% sure about this, but I think all WEA SAM releases are promos only ('SAM' possibly signifying 'Sampler'). If this is correct, WEA SAM 223 is not a public release and does not satisfy SHS criteria. Anyway, I've ignored it and attached 'The Gnome' to the LP (will do the same with 'Golf Girl').

Where did you find the release date 22/11/1984?

Really wild, General!
