Nothing Rare, But Why The Different Label ?

Recommended Posts

Canadian?

this is the Canadian release post-19710-0-23192600-1412510807_thumb.p.

 

Sometimes an American 45 will have two or three releases on different Canadian labels, but the Wand showed here is an USA release. I never saw a Canadian Wand by memory. There are few odd releases on Wand made at different pressing plants and consecutive runs variations due to change of ink, shortage of pre-printed labels… here's one;

Looks like a pirate release to me, see how the songwriter text isn't aligned

 

I've found 2 things, here under Wand obviously   http://45-sleeves.com/

and on Popsike   http://www.popsike.com/Kingsmen-Louie-Louie-w-Northeast-only-label-Hear/330581932343.html

 

Plus it has a "Bell Sound" stamp in the deadwax

 

So still non the wiser  ................

That's a legitimate USA release pressed in a NY plant.  It just had an odd label design for whatever reason (incompetency?).  All Canadian pressings from that time should have had "Made in Canada" written on them.  I think the REO was the only Canadian pressing during its original run.  I think it was re-issued as an oldie on another Canadian label.

It was a random guess on my part I must admit. I used to have a Canadian copy of the Independents "I love you, yes I do" on Wand, and it looked similar. I had bought it thinking it was a US demo at Wigan, but when I got it into proper light it turned out otherwise.

Not sure where I heard this and have no idea as to it's kosherness but supposedly it was issued in the North East or West ( Can't remember which) USA only
with this label before they started cranking them out to meet the demand.

I may have to get me tin hat, but that's what I heard, somewhere, sometime.

I'm sure there is something to what you heard, as i remember that it was issued first on The West Coast.  They had it for a few months before it was out in The Midwest (and probably The East, as well).  The Kingsmen were located in Seattle.  I'm sure that Flo Greenberg just bought the masters, as I'm sure it was recorded in Seattle, with no Scepter/Wand people involved (e.g. Luther Dixon).

post-19710-0-81226400-1412571988_thumb.p yes Robb, first on a West Coast release (the Kingsmen were from & recorded 'Louie Louie in Portland, Oregon) then released later as suches in the USA post-19710-0-25163700-1412572455.pngpost-19710-0-33868800-1412573107.pngpost-19710-0-82688200-1412573381.pngpost-19710-0-10475300-1412572749_thumb.p and this variation that bears the same design as for the albums on Wand post-19710-0-60799600-1412573570_thumb.p
