This is the Monarch, West coast press. Totally legit.

 

They used the Atco-distributed logo from the older releases well into the life of the new Paramount-distributed company for some reason.

 

My copies of Darrell Banks "Here To Stay" (next album in the catalogue) and Margie Joseph "Makes a New Impression" are like this.

 

Hope this helps.

Bit strange Andy.  Have the blue Volt one myself.  Track listing on Mancha sida  is the same. 

 

From Popsike the cover on this one says its a Promo.

My guess that it is a US promo copy

The promo copy is white label. http://www.bsnpubs.com/stax/volt.html

 

The first Volt label was yellow with black printing. Above the center hole is "VOLT RECORDS" in black, underneath the logo is a black rectangle with a yellow lightning bolt in it. At the bottom of the label is Distributed by ATCO Record Sales Co. This label was used on the 400 series. The yellow label without the "Distributed by ATCO Record Sales Co." also sometimes appears on the 6000 series up to VOS-6017, through a pressing plant mistake at the Monarch, Louisiana, plant.

never seen it on this type of label Andy and great info again from some very knowledgeable people

on the subject of the Darrell Banks Volt LP, i remember getting this from the US in about 88/89 and could not believe how good it was - still one of my all time favourite LP's - his ATCO Lp ain't too happy either mind you

 

once again great info from all who responded to Andy D's original post - you gotta love SS at times!!!!!
