Original : Green label styrene with raised x in the run out these were the Detroit issues.

Orange or light green moulded over label on vinyl.

Orange reissue : Reissued through Atco in 1972 has a slightly different layout("AT" for Atlantic distribution scratched in run out groove). White demo copies are definite originals. But some have a very rough edge to the vinyl others don't, both are authentic releases.

This is all very worrying.

I have a green label vinyl copy with a raised x on the run out. Dunno if the label is light or dark green though!

I've always assumed it was bootleg.

Never seen a green boot.

Have scans of both vinyl and styrene.

first the lighter green vinyl.

These have distributed by atco records underneath the HIB

second, the styrene

The darker detroit styrene have the detroit address under the HIB

bothe genuine.

Pretty sure Green Boots exist. Instead of a raised "X" in the runout groove it is scratched in on the boots.

If anyone can tell me different I'd be very pleased because I've got one but sure I'm right!

That's right Dave, exactly how you've put it. Plus the volumes low on the green boot.

This sounds like mine- dark green, Detroit address under the "Hib Records", blurry print. low volume and on a closer look seems to have a scratched 'x'.

So thats alright then.

:ohmy:

Excellent, I hope to make this. Will you be playing some of those oldies that aren't oldies yet oldies? They're my favourite oldies.
