Here’s a few more rarities that have been added, several more to the Harvest section along with a new section for Track Record, founded by The Who’s management and also responsible for the Jimi Hendrix Experience albums and singles. Keep checking back for further Track releases and click the images below for details of each album:
Yet another Led Zeppelin label error has been spotted (many thanks to Jonas for pointing this one out). The debut album, as we all know, was originally issued with the ‘turquoise’ sleeve variant. This sleeve should carry a vinyl with a Superhype label, as opposed to a later Warner Bros label (see below). However, it turns out there are two versions of this label for Superhype, one with an erroneous numbering system for crediting the publishing on side 1. Check out the two labels below:
The top label lists (correctly) that songs 1, 2, 4. are published by Superhype Music and song 3. by Jewel Music. The 2nd label lists songs 1, 3, 4. as Superhype and then 3. again as Jewel… (don’t pay too much attention to the colour variance in the labels above, the 1st label is a hi-res scan from my own collection, the 2nd label is a camera photograph I’ve sourced from the internet).
The Warner Bros version is shown below for comparison:
Well spotted Jonas!
Sharp-eyed Pavel from Russia has pointed out there is an alternative large swirl label for Uriah Heep’s “Very ‘eavy…Very ‘umble”. So here are the three swirl labels for comparison:
Note that the songwriting and publishing credits are on both the 2nd and 3rd label versions, so we must therefore conclude that the label without these credits is the very first issue.
