Incidentally, my local record emporium informed me one week later that these releases had all been deleted !

Track 2 - Jenny Wren (Radio Edit) (2:08)

The single entered the U.K. charts on 27th November 2005 at number 22.
Second week in the chart the single slipped down to number 57. After which it dropped out.

I am led to believe that in it's first week of release Jenny Wren sold about four and a half thousand copies.
