Barbara & Gwen - Right On

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

Another label comparison question to follow up on my Curtis, the Brothers one. 

 

Whats the difference (aside from the misprint) of the following two issues of the Funk/B-Boy record, Right On?

Are they both legit?

I'm not aware of it being booted.

 

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks, Gary

From the looks of them, both pressings look legitimate.  I resided in Chicago part-time during the year that was out, and saw it new.   The ZTSC 142000 series is Columbia Midwest correct pressing code for that year (1968).  It is properly a styrene pressing, which is what Columbia Midwest used.  The red/orange labelled pressing uses a font used by a local Chicago pressing plant in 1968-69.  I have several Al-Tog and Chicago Music Bag records using that design.  The black print is too solid and strong over the background colour to have come from a photo.   I really doubt that there would have been enough demand tp boot such a record.  I'm sure Bob A.  will agree.  He probably has a copy of that, particular pressing in any case.  If memory serves me, the design on the left was, by far, the more common of the two.  Actually, I don't remember having seen the Columbia pressing (although that is clearly legitimate (that look of styrene, paper, font and how the label is attached to the plastic, from the late '60s, and how it wore and degraded over those 35-45 years, couldn't be faked/reproduced).

As Robb suggested above: both are legit.

 

"Right, Oon" is on vinyl.

"Right On" is on styrene.

 

Both variations usually turn up in VG-/VG-ish condition so obviously a much loved record upon its release.

big hit in chicago, the styrene design on the right is by far the more common version actually. i think there's another vinyl label variation but might be confused.

There is one with the credit as 'Barabara Gwen' - missing out the '&' when I first got it I thought it was one person and that was her name

Ah cool, I've got the one on the left, with the extra 'o' but its more of an orange label, rather than red. 
Going through my shelves so except more questions!

Thanks for the into though guys, really appreciate it. 

 

Best

I'm sure you are right, Bob.  I remember seeing a different vinyl issue from a local Chicago plant that had the correct spelling of "on".
