GEORGE HARRISON The Vinyl Collection: 2017 UK limited edition digitally remastered VINYL LP Boxset comprising all twelve of George’s studio albums [with exact replicas of the original release tracklisting] along with his classic live album Live In Japan plus two 12″ single picture discs of When We Was Fab and Got My Mind Set On You. All discs are pressed on 180gram Heavyweight Vinyl and are housed together within an incredible two-piece rigid slipcase box with lenticular front cover! More info here
KATE BUSH Hammer Horror: Very Rare One-Sided Test Pressing for the 1978 Australian 7″ single, with ‘EMI-11837A-2’ matrix detail etched in the side one run-off. The labels are plain white with printed catalogue & side detail & annotatedartist/song titles, complete with a plain white die-cut sleeve. Just a select handful of these would have been made to test the sonics & the vinyl appears barely played at all. Impossible to find! More info here
THE SMITHS Shoplifters Of The World Unite: Very rare 1987 UK uncut thick card printer proof artwork for the 12″ vinyl front and reverse sleeve with colour bar, written annontations and measuring 25″ x 14″. Superb Smiths collectable obtained from a former industry employee that includes the following hand-written text above the title, “Moz sez it’s a winner, except….”, the exception being the inclusion of extra guitarist Craig Gannon’s name being on the sleeve! A little bit of Smiths history if ever-there-was! This item has been folded but has stood the test of time remarkably well with very little signs of wear – another Smiths one-off looking for a frame and a wall at the earliest opportunity!
