For a long time, I'm looking for Carl Douglas' KungFu Fighting on 12". I cannot find any information if there's actually an original 12" of this song. I know that there are many re-issues from the 90's, but no orignal one.

Today I found another 12" of this song, but vendor cannot give me any information about year, cat number,...

Hope somebody can help me ?! Do you guys know this EP ? Is this actually an original promo from the 70's ? Is it a re-issue ? I think it's label PRT, ?

"KUNG FU FIGHTING" by Carl Douglas came out in 1974.
At that time the 12" was not invented yet.
The only original here in the US was on 20th Century Records 45 & LP version.

I'm not sure what label it came out in the UK, but I'm sure they had it before us.
I think it was PYE Records that had the original over there.

The first promo 12" anywhere came out from Scepter Records in 1975.
They were not commercially available.
"FREE MAN" - South Shore Commission
"NICE & SLOW" - Jesse Green
"I GET LIFTED" - Sweet Music

1976 they were prevelent in most labels and the first one commercially released was "TEN PERCENT" - Double Exposure on Salsoul Records.
