Companies, etc.



Second Pressing + obviously 'over printed' titles in large brown boxes on cover front.

The original first issue had small faint small titles on cover front, which is how the cover was originally designed. However, (no doubt due to poor sales) the record company had an ugly brown box over printing the original titles - with larger titles so they would stand out for buyers. However, as you can see - these brown boxes are not in keeping with the original cover design and look terrible!

Another point to note - showing this cover was re-designed and later, is that it appears on the CD versions which were released 2 years later. Whereas the original 'small titles' cover was never used again.

All tracks mixed at King Tubby's Studio, 18 Drummlie Avenue, Kingston 11, Jamaica.
Recorded Kingston, Jamaica 1973/1976.
Mastered and Edited, PTR Studios, London.

All Tracks Copyright Control. Made in England. (Note on Label)

Dedicated to the memory of Osbourne Ruddock 1941-1989

Released in a gatefold sleeve.

djrubbersoul's profile picture
I have a copy of this double album in a single sleeve and not a gatefold sleeve. One of the records is housed in a printed inner sleeve and the second is in a plain white sleeve. Label, barcode & matrix/run-out is exactly the same as this entry.
Should this have it's own entry, or are all copies like this? Thanks
