Since I have to frequently refer to them, please read the following threads:
🞶 Using the Stereo tag on stereo releases
🞶 Identifying Pressing Plant in FTF when multiple pressings w/ same Cat# exist
🞶 Changing the established way Variants are displayed is incorrect per current guidance.
🞶 Please do not re-number variants.
🞶 Do not duplicate Variants to create a "package variant".

These releases aren't added to Discogs yet, but if it's something you want to add to your order, let me know and I will submit the release and list my copy. Star_Man_20's Pending Submissions
