Rarest 45 On Coloured Vinyl?


Recommended Posts

Posted

Pickin up on an old thread. This is my copy of The Originals on red vinyl, the thing I've always wondered about is why it has Good Night Irene on both sides (both sides labelled Good Night Irene also) as opposed to the usual B side Need Your Lovin' yet there is no mention of "promo" etc. Its the correct catalogue number etc. So what was the point of pressing them up? I'd understand if it was a red vinyl version of the standard issue but to have both sides with Good Night Irene, yet no mention of promo/demo on the label doesn't seem to fit with any logic, but there must have been some sort of reason - novelty demo or something?

Maybe the Professionals on Gold Vinyl     (I should say this is NOT mine, nor is it ever likely to be)   Cheers Mick

  Bootleg , but pretty cool....

      Think I'd agree with Mick H...BTW not mine either, though the pic was taken in my front room...:-) :-) :-)

The promo was to be a black on white issue, slated for red vinyl.  I never heard of special demo records with tye store stock label and red vinyl.  Perhaps this was just a pressing error, that the wrong label was placed onto a red vinyl pressing?

I guess there was a special promo press run of several regular issues that had red vinyl for some particular reason.  I've just never heard why they did that.

It would appear that the "Arp" Pressing Plant pressed quite a few Double A Side Stock Copy Labels.

I have quite a few on Black Vinyl plus this one on Red Vinyl

I always assumed that they were intended for some kind of promotion.

Thanks for the info Roger. What you say would seem to make sense re promotional items but the use of stock labels seems strange - not even a "promo" sticker on them?

ARP was located in Michigan, so it is Midwest, NOT "East Coast".  Motown used RCA in Eastern Pennsylvania and occasionally, a New York plant for East Coast distribution.

I have always thought of this region as the Eastern part of America as it is situated to the East. I didn't know that it has been classed as Midwest. Thanks for clarifying Robb. I shall amend my notes.

It is the one with No Time For You on the flip, red vinyl and picture sleeve if you can get it!
