Earl Grant small text

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

Couple of years ago i asked on here about the Small text Decca copy of Earl Grant--Hide Nor Hair.Some claim them to be second issues to the large text and other very knowledgable guys said no difference both done same year 1967.The copy i have is the small text with 

Matrix / Runout (Stamped, A run out): 45 118119 4.

Before either playing it or selling it i would like to know for sure if the small text is original

Can anyone shed any further light on this one for me please and what does JM list them as in his latest guide

thanks in advance------Patto

Here is some more Decca info but no answer to the small print question.

I understood that Decca and Brunswick releases often had small and large print versions but the large print version tends to be the rarer( and they look nicer). They were done at the same time just different locations. I think I had the small print Hide Nor Hair way back before it was popular.
