Mine has a very similar matrix/runout but a very different label. Mine is also an earlier release than 1979.

If your copy is etched except for a stamped "0" on the A side and is stamped on the B side, then my copy is the same. (See my above comment for more info.)

My copy has similar matrix/runout etchings and stampings, but has the "Arr.: J. Cash" on B4.

My copy is not marked as a club copy, but it's very similar to this except there are slight differences with the final four stamp marks. The manufacturing information at the very bottom of the label gives RCA address as Indianapolis, so I may have an ... See full review

My copy doesn't have a series of "1" on either side, has the PRC on both sides, and has a W after the PRC on Side B.

My copy has a gold stamp, indicating a promo copy, on the back upper left corner of the jacket, and also a sticker on the front which reads, "CONTAINS THE PERVIOUSLY UNRELEASED BONUS TRACK "EVERYWHERE I GO (I HEAR THE GO GO'S)" 422-846 358-1.
posted a comment on Janis Joplin - Pearl. 4 months ago
My copy is ALMOST like the above and also ALMOST like a couple of others, but not exactly, so I can't narrow down to whether my copy is an unique release or a variant of one of the others. One difference is what looks like a faint "AM" or "AMP" etched on ... See full review

Does anyone have a copy of this pressing who can post the cover image that goes with it? I don't have the capability or I would.
posted a comment on Joan Baez - Diamonds & Rust. 4 months ago
My copy of this pressing has the same identifiers but it's not a promo.
posted a comment on Various - Tommy (Original Soundtrack Recording). 5 months ago
This is only one half of the soundtrack. There's probably another Austrian release containing the C and D sides, or else this is meant to be a 2-record set, and the poster had only one of the albums.

I have two versions. One is the one described above. The other one had the sticker, "Direct Metal Mastering." There is a difference in the sound quality.

This entry matches my copy EXCEPT my copy has no "EAST" or anything else around the spindle. Maybe not all copies have it?

This matches my copy EXCEPT the barcode on the cover is NOT blanked out.
posted a comment on U2 - October. 6 months ago
My copy fits about 99% of this entry but there is no "east" stamp on the matrix/runout and there are slightly different etchings on each side, including what appears to be an extra string of characters. I wonder if my copy is a west coast pressing.
posted a comment on U2 - Boy. 6 months ago
My copy is similar but matrix/runout has "S2" on side A and "S1" on side B, plus there are some differences w/ the inner sleeve.
posted a comment on Three Dog Night - Joy To The World - Their Greatest Hits. 6 months ago
I wonder if there is a typo in the matrix/runout transcription above. My copy is a match for it, except that Runout B contains 50178-B instead of 50178-A.

My copy has a considerably different matrix/runout sequence of etchings.

Above link to ABC labels is down so we can't check the label design.
posted a comment on Rick Springfield - Tao. 7 months ago
My copy is an exact match on side A but contains some variation in the numbers and letters sequenced on side B.
posted a comment on Rick Springfield - Success Hasn't Spoiled Me Yet. 7 months ago
My copy appears to be a variant. On side A the sequence does not include +A2S and instead includes +A4D. Side B has A3BB+ in place of A6P+.
posted a comment on Bruce Springsteen - Born In The U.S.A.. 7 months ago
I think I have a variant of this pressing. The only difference is after the RL on the A side, comes "E3" and the B side's sequence starts with G2 and ends with C2. I don't know whether to go ahead and list the "variant" or if I should await further ... See full review

There are two entries for this album w/ the "LW" denoting a Los Angeles pressing, that perhaps can be merged. The number for the other one is 4796821. My copy contains an "LW" but I cannot tell if it should be a variant of this, a variant of the other ... See full review

There are two entries for this album w/ the "LW" denoting a Los Angeles pressing, that perhaps can be merged. My copy contains an "LW" but I cannot tell if it should be a variant of this, a variant of the other one, or a separate entry.

Could the "PZ 36881" on this listing be a typo? Could the ID actually be "JZ" 36881?
posted a comment on Tom Robinson - Hope And Glory. 8 months ago
My version has no stamping on its matrix/runout and has a much longer series of etchings on both sides.
posted a comment on Ramones - Road To Ruin. 8 months ago
This is like my copy except the "sterling" is stamped, not etched.
posted a comment on Ramones - Road To Ruin. 8 months ago
My copy has the same etchings except "sterling" is stamped, not etched, and my dust cover is not plain.
posted a comment on Ramones - Leave Home. 8 months ago
Mine is similar (including "Carbona Not Glue") but the etching on side A, aside from the scratched-out part, reads, "SA-7528-1-B CSM 5" and the Side B etching, aside from the scratched-out part, reads, "SA-7528-3-B B-1B CSM JANOS A" so I think I may have ... See full review
posted a comment on Ramones - Ramones. 8 months ago
This release is similar to mine but mine also includes a stamped * and a stamped PJ on Side A and and a 1 and maybe a P or a 2 on side B. (Three small stamped marks, one indistingishable, may be the only marks on side B.)
posted a comment on Pet Shop Boys - Actually. 9 months ago
I don't see or feel any embossing on the label ("around the center hole" or elsewhere) on my copy. There is also a shorter string of etching on both sides.
posted a comment on Midnight Oil - Diesel And Dust. 9 months ago
I think there's an error in the Matrix/Runout Side B (etched). I think it's supposed to start "BL-40967" and not the "AL" that's shown.
posted a comment on The Knack (3) - Round Trip. 10 months ago
This appears to be my version but the matrix/runout on Side A (identified as "There" on the label) has a "2" instead of any of the numbers listed after the "Z" here. The other identifiers are the same.

This is version is close to mine, but I think there's a slight difference in the lengthy series of matrix/runout etchings.
posted a comment on Elton John - Rock Of The Westies. 11 months ago
My version doesn't have the "P" and the diamond-shaped etchings or stampings, as far as I can tell, and I've looked very close.
posted a comment on Elton John - Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player. about 1 year ago
This release matches mine except mine does not have a black inner sleeve. It's got a white sleeve with gold trim, no writing or any indication of it being an MCA company sleeve.

I disagree with the style and genre. It should be spoken word poetry.
posted a comment on Joe Jackson - Night And Day. about 1 year ago
My copy is probably a variant of this because mine has Roman numerals in the matrix/runout, just not these Roman numerals.
posted a comment on Devo - Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!. about 1 year ago
My version has "KW" instead of "JW" or "WW" or "LW." It's plain black vinyl.
posted a comment on Elvis Costello - My Aim Is True. about 1 year ago
Several versions here have the note, "First US pressing with yellow rear sleeve." Does that mean if ours has a white rear sleeve, it's not this version?
posted a comment on The Clash - Give 'Em Enough Rope. about 1 year ago
"Promotion Only" probably deserves a separate listing. I have a different set of matrix/runout numbers, too, but mine is not a promotional copy.
