Johnnie Taylor - Friday Night - White Demo ?

Recommended Posts

hi , I have been looking for a copy of this but on the white demo ,which even though its in mannies book , I have not  come across one for sale , or one thats been sold , the nearest I came to getting one was a white Canadian ( issue ) ? , the seller who had it up for sale as wlp , but it looked like a white issue, as it did not say demo or promo on it when it turned up ,  does this exist , does anyone have a scan of one , to put my mind at rest , Thanks Eddy

One of my all time favourite artists.

There appears to be one here on Discogs:

http://www.discogs.com/buy/Vinyl/Johnnie-Taylor-Friday-Night-Steal-Away/138401788?ev=bp_rel_det

Ignore the image on the release page as this is generic.

The read the record description.

I have a test pressing of it, but don't think there will be a white demo, as it was a B side.

 

Aside from that, one thing I have just noticed is the matrix for the "Steal Away" label on its promotion and release says SM 00364.

 

The test press I have has "Steal Away" as SM 00360. The "Friday Night" matrix is unchanged - SM 00361 - making it the same as the printed labels for it's release.

 

I dont have a release so I can't check, but wondered if the "Steal Away" release also has the original SM 00360 matrix in the runout. This would them line up with it being the A side, and promoted as as such, and the demo / release SM 00364 would be a simple typing error.

 

Anyone got one to hand to check ?

 

Cheers

Mick

Yellow Issue has the matrix SM-00364 on the Steal away side and SM - 00361 on the friday night side.

You can always ask him to confirm.

Thanks for checking.

 

That's interesting, so "Steal Away" seems to have been mastered twice. SM-00360 and then SM-00364

 

Non of which helps Eddyw of course, but solved my little anomaly.

 

Cheers

thanks for the answers to this bit mystery , the Canadian white one I had I sold to mate in warrington . I know he still has it so there is no problem to getting it and checking it over, maybe putting up a scan of it , I wonder if the listing in the book is wrong , or maybe there is a yellow promo , Thanks Eddy
