Bronze ILPS-9150 – Paladin

“Paladin” 1971









Sleeve notes:

Gatefold sleeve, matt textured outer with silver foil band logo with EJ Day Group printer’s credit on inner gatefold. Island Records credit on inner gatefold.


Label notes:

Island Records credit on label.


Stamped matrix:

ILPS 9150 A-1U        BRON1001 A-1

ILPS 9150 B-1U        BRON1001 B-1

This shows that the album presumably was the very first release on the newly founded label (by Gerry Bron, co-founder of Vertigo) and should have had a Bronze catalogue number of BRON1001, but due to the manufacturing and distribution being handled by Island, it had an ILPS (Island Records) catalogue number.
