Notes

℗ 1977 Virgin Records Ltd.

First UK pressing, approximately 1000 copies.
Originally planned to be released as promo only, but eventually released commercially earlier than expected due to the rushed-out French pressing being imported to UK.
Plain pink back cover, 11 tracks only.
No poster, no freebie 7" included.

Most copies are sent to France to counterattack massive UK-imports from Barclay Records. They are also sold in the UK, Scandinavia and the USA (as seen on the photos, record was imported to the US through JEM Records).

I own an A5/B7 copy with 12 tracks on record, 11 on yellow rear sleeve and Vicious miscredited on "EMI". There are so many variations, it's a nightmare identifying which one. I have had violations twice but no indication of what was wrong but have now settled on the release that has the text: "Third UK printing variant of the 12 track original UK sequence master including "Submission" as B3." but it is difficult to identify.

With regard to the single-sided single "Submission" single which I think I purchased separately. How can I sell the one-sided single on Discogs??? I am sure people would be interested in purchasing it.

I have the original plain pink rear sleeve, 11 track version, and a copy of the single sided Submission. Were the two issued together? The description on Discogs seems to say the pink version didn't come with the free single.
Any thoughts?

I have a version on vinyl, Virgin, V2086 A7/B7. But I don't have a cover for it - is there any resource online to buy original sleeves/covers only?

where is A&M AMS 7284 - some say that one costs around a 1000 pounds? Does it exist?

Having trouble finding my variant - It is BSK-3147 w/ blue and white sleeve. It has a WB logo instead of the Sex Pistols logo. The etching on side one is BSK-3147, LW2 and then there is a hand etched "#64" On Side 2 it looks hand etched "#64 BSK-2-3147 - LW3" I found a few similar, but those have the "Sex Pistols" label and no mention of a hand etched number. If anyone can help, much thanks!

Recently came across a copy of NMTB. Plain pink back cover.V2086 and has matrix A5/B8. Also has A side and B side writing Producers Chris Thomas OR Bill Price. Still has the original Virgin Records price tag of £2.79 on what must be the original cellophane wrapping. Please can someone enlighten me as to the value. Thanks !

Fantastic Audio quality proving that the first 1,000 sound better than all other pressing. Loud and clear, some of the layers of guitar come out and you can hear the genius that Chris Thomas is. The drums are dynamic and the vocals sound perfect in relation to the rest of the instruments. A very interesting listen to having completely different track listing and no submission.
A must for a Pistols collector - I'd rather have this over my mint Canadian copy any day, not sure how the standard early UK copy would fare. EMI has so much weight to it, so so loud and in your face, infact the whole B side sounds much better with the dead wax being much larger - and without the longest track 'submission' from the later releases.

Bought my copy on release date at Virgin Mega store Oxford st london, 11 track, plain back cover & a copy of the one-sided Submission but no poster.... I have no idea looking through the different versions of 'first pressings' what my copy is really worth..
