    So are these Sanctuary pressings of the same source as the 71 Vertigo issues or am I reading that wrong?

      Have recently purchased a white label test pressing of this release, however it looks like you can't just use this release with an edit, but have to delete ALL of the details entered for the primary release, then enter ALL of the details above again to add it to the database.
      Life's too short, guys - needs to be a way to select an entry as a framework for additions.
