No, I think there (in case if this one is not a fake thing) ... at early sixties The Fontana Snowband probably did a couple of singles on 45-esp and released it with small circulation.. but who knows about the original story?
I heard early about singles of Fontana. Can't say yes or no.

Kruno, Tim has a tape with a five songs.

Here's my thoughts about this apple:

Image
Emi-disc is bit pirated cuts.

An emi-disc is "or was" basically a pirated record made of "I think" aluminium with a plastic coating which is thick enough to be grooved or etched by a rather large and magical machine which copies "or used to copy" an original recording or pressing of a record or even a reel to reel tape (this bit will become apparently important to the story later). Oh and by the way, they weighed a bloody ton, maybe that's why Tony use a van when going to his gigs, no sorry that was just a joke Tone!! They also reduced the life of your stylus by about 10 fold. Oh you do remember what a stylus was don't you ? yeah course you do!

This machine had a cutting needle on it which would gouge out a groove in the revolving disc matching exactly the original disc which was placed on the turntable next to it, thus producing a somewhat heavy but almost perfect reproduction of the said recording. The only problem was that it only lasted about 20 plays and then it became a bloody crap sound losing its clarity "of which there was not a lot of to start with". then after all this, the bloke cutting them would toss you a hand full of horrible red or white sticky backed labels "depending on what he had at the time" on which you would write the track name and artist.

even if there is a few copies around i find it very strange that it's surfaced on the ebay now at the very convenient time when this great find occurred. if it was real it would probably be on ebay before.
