"You're The One For Me, Fatty"|
UK 7" [HMV POP1630]
Some copies of the UK 7" come in a rigid glossy sleeve, others in a paper sleeve. Both variations open from the side, with a semi-circle cut-out portion on the back for better grip on the record (view front and back artwork from the menu on the left). The record has a solid centre and vintage blue His Master's Voice labels with black text and logos. A His Masters Voice logo is found at the top, publishing info, "Your Arsenal" source, catalogue number and EMI copyright on the left, "45 R.P.M.", catalogue number and production credits on the right, title with songwriting credit at the bottom, legal warning around the top edge.

UK 12" [HMV 12POP1630]
The front artwork of the 12" format is very slightly different to that of the 7", mainly in the relative size of the His Master's Voice logo in the bottom right corner (see left). The text on the back of the sleeve is almost the same as on the back of the 7", but this format's additional b-side was added to the track listing. The text layout was not altered much, but its relative size is smaller and the barcode contents were adapted (view left). The record is slipped inside a white poly-lined paper inner sleeve. It has vintage blue His Master's Voice labels with black text: His Masters Voice logo at the top; publishing info, catalogue number and EMI copyright on the left; "45 R.P.M.", catalogue number and production credits on the right; track listing and songwriting credits at the bottom; legal notice around the top edge.

UK CD5 [HMV CDPOP1630]
The cd-single comes in a thin jewelcase. The usual image was slightly cropped for the front of this format's J-card insert (view left). The spine and back are tan with maroon text. The spine shows Morrissey's name and the title track as well as the barcode number instead of the usual 'CDPOP' catalogue number. The back flap has on the left a large barcode including the UK catalogue number and a bit of text, and on the right the track listing and EMI copyright. The insert's reverse was adapted from the 7" and 12" back artwork, but there is no barcode or EMI copyright and the layout of the remaining text was somewhat changed (view left). The disc is black with silver text and made to look like the labels of the vinyl formats: a His Masters Voice logo and "CD" graphics in the style of the vinyl's "45 RPM" at the top; Euro catalogue number, songwriting and publishing info and UK catalogue number on the left; compact disc logo, production credits, "BIEM/MCPS", label code and EMI copyright on the right; track listing at the bottom; legal warning and manufacturing credit around the outer edge.
UK CSS [HMV TCPOP1630]
The cassette has its own variation of the front artwork (view left). The usual image is found at the top, cropped as on the sleeves of the vinyl formats, without any text over it. The bottom space is tan and filled with Morrissey's name, a red His Master's Voice logo and "You're The One For Me, Fatty", also in red. The spine and back are tan with mostly red text. The spine shows Morrissey's name in the same font and colour as on the front and the title next to it in red over two lines. The barcode number is found at the top instead of the usual 'CDPOP' catalogue number, and a His Master's Voice logo at the bottom. A barcode including the UK catalogue number is found at the centre of the back flap, between the two titles featured on this format. A EMI copyright is printed across the very bottom. The insert has one extra panel. It is tan and shows the credits and Vespa photograph usually found on the back of the sleeves of the vinyl formats. The credits are printed in red and actually include a few extra ones for songwriting. The cassette is made of black plastic with pale grey text printed directly onto it. It shows, amongst other things, the UK catalogue number in the top left corner, the track listing top-centre and a His Master's Voice logo in the top right corner.
UK 7" jukebox [HMV POP1630]
This item is just like the stock 7" described above but at the centre is a large hole for jukebox play. The record does not come in a picture sleeve unless it was paired with one a posteriori.

UK CD5 promo [HMV CDPOP1630]
Stock copies of the cd-single with a white and red "Manufacturer's Property / Not For Sale" sticker on the front of the case have also served promotional purposes.
UK promo video [??]
The release of "You're The One For Me Fatty" was originally promoted with the help of this one-track promo video of the title track. What makes this item particularly appealing to collectors is the fact that the usual footage is backed by an early unfinished mix of the song, as the video was finished before the mixing. Information on the packaging is needed.
UK promo video [Capitol/Parlophone]
This one-track promo video of "You're The One For Me Fatty" has a red Capitol/Parlophone sticker label on the front (spine) of the videocassette. This sticker label has the address for Parlophone Capitol Promotion on the left, logos for Capitol and Parlophone on the right, and Morrissey's name and "You're The One For Me Fatty" typewritten or computer-printed in the middle. The videocassette does not have a top label and comes in a generic clear plastic slipcase. The version of the video is the definive one and is labelled as "2nd edit" on the pre-screen.
UK promo video [In Phase]
The release of "You're The One For Me, Fatty" was also promoted with the help of this one-track In Phase promo video. The videocassette has generic white In Phase labels on top and spine, with green In Phase logo and Morrissey's name and "You're The One For Me, Fatty" printed in black. The cassette comes in a generic card slipcase. The version of the video is the definive one and is labelled as "2nd edit" on the pre-screen. It is also dated from 29 June 1992.
UK promo t-shirt
Lucky collectors have gotten their hands onto this unusual collectible, an off-white t-shirt manufactured for the promotion of the "You're The One For Me, Fatty" single. There are actually two slightly different variations of it. Both were made by Hanes, have a round neck and "You're The One For Me, Fatty" printed on the front in the same font as on the single. One of the two variations has a black His Master's Voice logo the left sleeve (view here). The other variation has nothing on the sleeves but the back shows Morrissey's name and "Your Arsenal" in the same fonts as on the front of the latter album, above a small EMI logo (view here).

UK 12" test pressing [HMV 12POP1630]

UK in-house cassette [Abbey Road]
Some lucky collectors have managed to get their hands on an Abbey Road cassette which originally served in-house purposes. The cassette comes with a white insert featuring a grey and yellow Abbey Road logo on the front, on top of which is printed 'You're The One For Me Fatty 7"A'. The spine only has Morrissey's name at the centre and an Abbey Road logo at the bottom. The back flap states "Copied in Real Time by Lee Mansfield At Abbey Road Studios on 4 June 1992", above the Abbey Road phone and fax numbers and next to an Abbey Road logo. The tape is a chrome Transco TRII C20, made of smokey transparent plastic, with white sticker labels stating "Morrissey" next to the Abbey Road logo.
UK cassette proof sheet
A proof sheet of the UK cassette artwork has made it into the hands of collectors. It shows the final cassette insert artwork, unfolded and with cutting/folding marks around it and a colour reproduction bar at the top.
AUS CSS [EMI Australasia 8801124]
The only format released in Australia is this cassette-single. The cassette was sold inside a card slipcase open at the top and bottom, and features on its front the same artwork as the UK cassingle (view left) although the colour of the background appears to be closer to beige than tan. The background is also beige on the back. The black and white Vespa photo from the usual back artwork is shown at the top, above the track listing (including songwriting and publishing credits) and the credits usually found on the back of the sleeve, plus an EMI Music Group Australiasa credit at the very bottom. The spines are also beige with mostly red text. One spine shows Morrissey's name in the same font and colour as on the front with "You're The One For Me Fatty" in red over two lines, the catalogue number in red at the top and red XDR and EMI logos at the bottom. The other spine shows a barcode in the middle, with the catalogue number and a Dolby logo at the top and XDR and His Master's Voice logo at the bottom. The cassette is made of completely transparent plastic, its reels are blue and text is printed in blue directly onto it. The track listing is at the top on each side, a His Master's Voice logo on the left, the catalogue number on the right and Dolby plus XDR logos at the bottom.
Holland CD5 [EMI 880112-2]
The Holland cd-single is just like its UK counterpart with only a few alterations made on the back and disc. The front and reverse of the insert are the same as in the UK. "CDP 560" and "PM 515" were added in the empty white space next to the barcode on the back and "Printed in Holland" at the end of the EMI copyright next to the barcode. The disc is also black with silver text, but instead of having"Made in Great Britain" at the bottom of it, "Made In Holland" is found at the end of the block of credits on the left. Similarly, "BIEM/MCPS" was removed from the block of credits on the right and "BIEM/STEMRA" was added beneath the 'CDPOP' catalogue number on the left.
Germany promo cd [EMI 880112-2]
The release of this single was promoted in Germany with stock copies of the UK or Holland cd (which?) paired with a German 'Compact Info' press release. This press release is just slightly larger than the cd case so it can be fitted inside with just the black and pale blue EMI header sticking out. More information needed.
Italy 12" [EMI 14 8801126]
The sleeve of the Italian 12" is made of particularly thin card and shows the usual 12" variation of the artwork on the front. The only differences found on the back of the sleeve are within and around the barcode. The catalogue number inside the barcode was changed for the Italian one and a black EMI logo was added in the white space in the bottom right corner. A 'ES' logo is printed sideways on the left of the barcode. Because of the sleeve in which this record was distributed, there is no inner sleeve, although many collectors have since added one for safer storage. The labels are blue with black text just like the UK labels, but the shade of blue is paler and a few minor changes were made in the text, its font and its layout. The catalogue number on the right was changed for the Italian one and the one on the left was removed. A boxed SIAE credit was added at the bottom of the block of credits on the left, "Made In Gt Britain" was removed from the bottom of the label and an EMI Italiana credit was added around the outer edge.
Italy 12" promo [EMI 880112-6]
Copies of the stock 12" were made into promotional items by being pin-stamped in the bottom right corner with the words "Campione Gratuito".
