We have the name change from THE DOWNBEATS to THE ELGINS with STICKERS covering THE DOWNBEATS etc.

The Staggered VIP LOGO for the DEMO and later VIP Design for THE DOWNBEATS.

Later VIP Design for THE ELGINS

Just bought this on the Earlier VIP Design as a DEMO (MONARCH PRESS)

Monarch did have the habit of using the Earlier Designs for a longer period of time to other pressing plants.

Group name "ELGINS" rather than THE ELGINS

Guessing there's a Stock Copy on the Earlier Design too for the West Coast Press.

Any West Coast Early Design as THE DOWNBEATS ?

How many Variations are out there for this release ?

Thanks Sean

Wondering if just one Pressing Plant was Involved by allowing THE DOWNBEATS copies to escape.

Must have been late in production when the Artists name was changed, Stock Copies Involved as THE DOWNBEATS.

My DEMO has Delta # 59496 / Delta # 59497 which places it at October / November 1965 >>> ANORAK'S CORNER <<<

Thanks Rod

Your DEMO to this Stock Copy EAST COAST

PopSike.com

190653834747.jpg

I assume that the;

Vinyl

  • EAST COAST = Straight VIP at side Label Number, situated to the right on a DEMO / Stock Copy.

  • MIDWEST = Staggered VIP DEMO - Label Number at the bottom DEMO / Stock Copy.

Styrene

  • WEST COAST = Normally MULTICOLOURED DEMO (Sometimes WHITE / BLACK DEMO), Bold Text.

I wonder if there's a MONARCH press for DOWNBEATS out there too as a DEMO or Stock Copy.

I think that staggered V.I.P. was a misprint, and the real design intended was straight vertical. I've seen the vertical on some other WDJ issues.

Many Thanks, Your Identification of a Midwest Copy fills a gap in the puzzle.

I have no doubt that the VIP Logo was Intended to be Straight.

However, The Various Pressing Plants and Printer appear to have left clues as to the region the record was pressed.

Quality Control didn't specify regards to Label Layout.

Just piecing together the different pressing plants, staggered VIP appears on quite a few releases and I believe.

Looking at the Layout, gives a clue to pressing plant.

WEST COAST (Styrene Bold Text) - Expect a Multicoloured DEMO, although some releases are Black / White

EAST COAST = DOUBLE SIDED STOCK COPY - (USED FOR PROMOTION I BELEIVE)

The position of the Label Credits, match on all three.

EAST COAST : "Arp" Stock Copy Credited to THE DOWNBEATS

However, It is the MIDWEST Copies that carry THE DOWNBEATS as a DEMO Format

 

MIDWEST :

Here it is with "THE ELGINS" Sticker over THE DOWNBEATS Printed Label Credit
 
WEST COAST : Monarch

This is a DEMO on the Early V.I.P. Design yet it is credited to ELGINS not DOWNBEATS

The West Coast Monarchs tended to keep the Early Design for a longer period across the Motown Catalogue.

I would love to see a West Coast Stock Copy with the early design if one does exist.

As already mentioned, the name change happened quite late in the printing / pressing stage.

Who I ask would therefore be credited on the 1st Batch  West Coast Stock Copy.

 

Here is a West Coast copy with the Later Design and ELGINS Credit

Could this be the only West Coast Stock Copy
