I bought my first singles back in 1979 - not ashamed to say they were Pop Musik by M and Supertramp's The Logical Song. Ever since then I have been an avid buyer of all things vinyl. I now collect record labels especially in the vein of Rough Trade, Cherry Red, Creation et al. I was stupidly conned into buying CD's in the '90's and am now in the process of getting rid of them (anyone interested in any of my CD's please message me!) and replacing them. if possible, with good old vinyl. Long may my addiction last.

I dispute the fact that they played the first WOMAD in 1982...I'm sure that they cancelled at the last minute to be replaced by the godawful Haysie Fantayzee!

Going by Rough Trade's Numbering system RT0013ST should be listed as a 12" EP or mini-album at the very least. If it was an album it would be RT0013LP....

This record costs about £40 from Rough Trade direct....why anyone would think that it was acceptable to charge over £200 for it in the week of its release on here makes my blood boil. This is NOT what Discogs should be about. Grrrrrrr

My copy has the Catalogue Number of "ECHO 1 A1" to "ECHO 1 D1" and the gatefold sleeve is stamped with a number (No. 085). Is this the same item?

Why is this release not on the Rhythm-ites and Hippy Slags pages?
posted a comment on Sun Kil Moon - Universal Themes. over 2 years ago
Is the Rough Trade Catalogue Number correct on this page? I don't have it but surely it would be the same as the Vinyl Release which ends in "787" not "767".

My copy plays "November November" on both sides. The run-off matrix is "REWIND 13 - A" both sides. Should this be a separate listing as a mispressing?
posted a comment on The Regents - See You Later. over 3 years ago
My copy has "Oh Terry" on both sides although the injection moulded labels are correct...anyone else seen one and should it be entered as a mispressing?

My copy may have the labels reversed - maybe someone could help. The run-out etching EGG 001 - A the label states "Laughbeat". The run-out etching EGG 001 - B the label states "Can't Help It". Are they reversed?

My copy definitely states E6-016 in the run-off groove. There is no reference to E6-015 anywhere.

...The B Side Label also states "Freeing Song By Reigndeer"...there also appears to be 3 tracks...this is getting confusing!!

My copy that I have just purchased on Discogs has the Catalogue Number E6-016 etched into the vinyl rather than E6-010. It is quite clearly a 6 not a rubbish 0!. THE ELEPHANT 6 RECORDING Co........."SETTING THE STANDARD" is etched into the vinyl on side ... See full review

This is not a separate label to the one already on here under "For Us". These need to be moved.
posted a comment on Lambchop - Give Me Your Love (Love Song). over 5 years ago
This record should also be included in the "For Us" Records Discography. The Label shows both "For Us" and Bella Union but the catalogue number is only as a "For Us" (FU) release. There is no Bella Union Catalogue Number.

As this is the 7" the Catalogue Number should be RT 218. RTT is the 12" Version. There is also a white label version of the 7".

This exists as a red vinyl 7" Single (RTRADS603). The title song is Skyful Of Rainbows and I believe that the same song is on both sides. Comes with a Die-Cut Sleeve.

Surely the Hot Chip Remix on the 7" is 33 1/3 RPM!!?? Unless you like pinky & perky! No reference to speed on record other than 45RPM on side A.

The matrix in the run-out is VX1012 B - 2U - 1 - 1 - 1 on side 2. There are only 5 tracks as opposed to 6 on the proper record. The songs that play on side 2 are also the same as listed on side 2 of the Twinkle Brothers' Crucial Cuts.
posted a comment on I-Roy - Crucial Cuts. over 7 years ago
My copy must be a misspressing. Side 2 is actually The Twinkle Brothers' Crucial Cuts (VX 1012). Is this a common misspressing?

Side one actually begins with Love for tender... and side 2 with I can't stand up for falling down....
The paper labels on the record confirm this as do the CD reissues.

Is this a seperate release or is the release shown incorrect?

The paper labels on this record state 33RPM but I am sure they should say 45RPM - this would mean that timings given for the CD version are correct.
