Per Tony Visconti himself, he (TV) also produced B7 "Let Me Sleep Beside You" even though that is not noted on this album cover. TV believes this might be his first production for David Bowie.

I have Matrix variation

ST-A-732915-L PR

Don't know if this deserves a new entry, or adding a variation to an existing entry.

I have a CD that is pressed/labelled by Rhino as "Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons 25th Anniversary" disc #3... that is actually this Steve Miller Band album, "Book of Dreams". It was sent to the radio station I worked at as part of a Frankie Valli ... See full review

I believe the release number on this entry is also transposed and should be 314 519 798-2 and NOT 314 519 789-2 as shown. There were no photos on this entry to verify this transposition, so I didn't change it in the database.

I don't see it mentioned here - but the back cover of my copy (in hand) is rotated 90 degrees from the front cover's orientation. Don't know if this is part of all copies or if it's an anomaly.

Copy I have in hand - the vinyl slides into the cover from the top (above JOURNEY) and not from the right side. Don't know if this is worth noting on the entry proper.

Copy I have that I purchased in 1975 has the Disjuncta labels (no mention of URUS) on the vinyl, but the URUS name on the spine and bottom left of back cover. It's kinda a hybrid Disjuncta vinyl with URUS cover.

I think the "3" at the end of these matrix entries are actually sideways "W"s. Like the "AT" is sideways.

My copy matches the "RI" on the label. However the matrix on mine differs:

My copy (bought new when it was released) has slightly different run-outs, but I think this is the same version?

Side one: CHR-1-1111-W3 L@W3
Side Two: CHR-2-1111-W2 (was W1, with #2 scratched over the 1, or vice versa)

No stamps with my copy and I bought it new when it was released.
But my matrix is a bit different... just slightly... i.e. no "brackets" around anything. "Sterling" is a stamp, but there's some etched initials or something elsewhere in the matrix. Tough ... See full review
