Not a big fan of Oasis by any means but I had heard a few tracks off this album before and thought it sounded great.SO I was totally suprised when I read the review below.Gave it another quick listen.Bearing in mind the source of recordings and the... See full review

Well if yours is not pink there must be!What colour is yours??
posted a comment on Tool (2) - Fear Inoculum. 6 months ago
Well continuing below-5/6 seconds rather than 2 seconds on Side C.But Side D sounds great-the drum solo is really crisp and full on.I do not have a top expensive system but this sounds fine as I have already said.

I read the review below so I decided to check my copy here.I took great care on Side D-sounded perfect-there were clicks on Side C for 2 seconds and a background noise at one point but overall I thought it sounded really decent AND I am going to have... See full review

Completely ridiculous putting the details for a triple Lp made in Japan in 1972-from Osaka/Hakone? 1971 plus Japan 1972-probably Osaka also-and then a stream of single albums and others of completely different sources.By the way the original triple LP... See full review

Not so sure about Jamaican Press-more like UK??
Certainly distributed in UK.I remember getting 2 or 3 copies from Compendium Bookshop,Camden in early 1970s-71??.There was a loft and i handed

Had a copy of this record that seems it may be this pressing BUT it sounds crystal clear and really decent.Not my cup of tea musically but doesn't sound like the album reviewed below by others.Maybe its been recut or something as this sounds really good.

That Goats Head in the bowl of soup.I bought it in the late 1970s.It is a big item believe me.I couldn't fit it in my car as the horns made it too wide.Quite light considering the size, a good friend somehow attached it on his bicycle handle bars.

Seems I was right and wrong.It did get into the Top 20 but as late as April 1974.Why it only hit the charts,and presumably was only released as a single,as late as that when the actual track and album it came from were from around 6 months earlier is... See full review

Looking at the history of this single it is deemed to be released in 1974,though the single says 1973.It would not take a great deal of research to check this properly but it very much surprises me that this single is reckoned to have come out in 1974... See full review

Am sure you know but round cornered inner were also from 1975 but simply a later pressing than the 1st lot with straight cut corners.

There was a 10" bootleg with a 1967-ish sleeve that may have touched on this material but I cannot remember exactly-pretty sure it was on red vinyl.

I cannot believe there doesn't seem to be any trace of the original release in 1967?of this album on the orange Instant Analysis label.NOT the bootleg label.
The original Lp with a black sleeve and a little picture on the front was the basic LP length... See full review

I think the artwork looks fabulous but its all about opinions!It was a less punky more arty period for Siouxsie and that is reflected in the sleeve I guess-i can remember her concerts around this time starting with the 3 ladies playing violins in... See full review

Actually ,if my memory serves me well,this is a Japanese release(not 100% sure but fairly sure).There was a Volume 2 with red sleeve.
posted a comment on Genesis - Revelatory Genesis 80:78. over 2 years ago
Original 1st issues were all shrinkwrapped and made in USA-East coast around 1980.Also Picture Disc versions.
Copied a couple of years later in the Netherlands-sleeve texture etc.quite different..

This was a GERMAN sleeve imported to go with early pressings of the UK Spunk discs in the late 70s.

The one with black label ,GD 002 matrix,was the ORIGINAL issue of the Spunk Demos WITH the 2 extra tracks-this was meant to be the 'NO FUTURE UK...'issue and came out with the proper sleeve in various colours etc.BUT just to mess up some early sleeves... See full review

Possibly not just the yellow label were US Kornyphone-maybe some in black and white- but it's all getting a lot of years ago now!As said-check the run-out matrix for the important info.
posted a comment on Sex Pistols - Spunk. over 3 years ago
Actually a US Kornyphone pressing.The labels were not only used for Sex Pistols BUT also a number of other Kornyphone reissues including Genesis,Led Zeppelin and a couple of others-CHECK the matrix for the ID number-NOT just the label!

A UK pressing from around 1976 together with Led Zeppelin No Quarter and Bad Company Stuff That Duck.Probably only 500 copies of each.

Early European 'unofficial'from 1971 or so.BUT only in black vinyl at that time.The transparent vinyl must have come later using the same plates??
posted a comment on Yes - Wonderous Stories. over 4 years ago
This single was counterfeited a year or two later in USA-quite a good copy, the matrix is the giveaway point.Also some of the US copies came shrinkwrapped unlike the UK original.
