Acording to the Manship Guide it's a genuine issue on VEE JAY 1001 Blue Label Value £25 - but it's not the 1st issue as that was on Nuvj 1001 either a pink issue or a Dj copy £100 or £150 !

I'm no expert unlike many others on here but that's what I've read from the Manship Guide for you !

If I'm wrong then I appologies and I would be learning something aswell !

Hope it helps

John Manship has the blue copy at £25 in his price guide, this would suggest a legal reissue as he wouldnt list it if he considered it a bootleg, he also states there is a maroon coloured bootleg.

However Tim Browns guide states that there is a maroon and a blue bootleg.

So who is right?

How does anyone know for certain in these situations?

It's not a bootleg it's a 2nd issue put out to meet northern demand in 1975. Think the Fidels or something similar suffered a similar fate.

having pondered over this for some time before buying my copy recently it appeared that as steve says the blue is a reissue to meet demand (and a slightly different take)

original issue pink and a white demo of course

in case you're wondering i went for the issue
