featuring The Nice and Amen Corner on pink Immediate label; one of John Peel’s favourite bands on the Dandelion label, Principal Edwards Magic Theatre; very early Status Quo; Frijid Pink on Deram; a bit of Hawkwind on United Artists label; Three Dog Night on the Stateside label and finally Love’s best ever song on original Elektra label:
There are two versions of Judas Priest’s seminal 1976 LP on the Gull label (GULP 1015). I have found an alternative version from the Decca pressed version, one pressed by Pye Records.

And therefore, does that follow for ALL releases on Gull…are there two versions of each original release? Watch this space for developing news!
