But in 1978 Sire released one single pressed in Norway for the Scandinavian market, I wanna be sedated/I don't want you. There is no country of origin marked on the label but the matrix-number reveals that the record is pressed in Norway (SIR 001 A 9 P 78 FE 710). 78 is the year of release and 710 is the code for the pressing plant MIAS (Musikk-industri AS) in Oslo, Norway. The single was released in a blue Phonogram company sleeve pressed at Team Trykk located right by the pressing plant.
The labels also have the ncb-markings. Ncb stands for Nordisk Copyright Bureau and this marking can be seen on almost every record pressed in Scandinavia.

In 1980 Sire released a second single pressed in Norway, Baby I love you/High risk insurance. Matrix: SIR 4031 3 P 80 F 710. I have not been able to get any information about this one. Was it released in a company sleeve or a plain white sleeve?
If you know anything more please let me know!
