Jimmy Delphs - Almost - Label Variations

Recommended Posts

My brother in law (not on here) is after a copy of Jimmy Delphs 'Almost' on Karen but I notice there are different label designs - question being: are they just different pressing plants or are there reissues? If so then which variant came out first?

TIA

Thanks for that Mark, and your reply made me realise I should have asked about variations between Karen and Carla.. I'm thinking just different pressing plants but would prefer a difinitive answer

I'll run the Carla version past my bro-in-law as he may not be aware of IBFB and, once heard, that may be the copy he goes for anyway..

Nice One MotownSoullMan.. didn't know that - have spotted blue, purple, multi-coloured, plus WDJ on Karen (script title).. a blue Karen with italic script, plus an Atco release - which I'm presuming is a later, national release?

Appreciate the input thus far.. 😎

Aye mate. There's a few of them. I just looked online and could find 3 on Carla,  8 on Karen, 1 on ATCO and 1 on Italian Atlantic. All I know for sure, or should I say, what I am told, is the Carla release came first, with I've Been Fooled Before on the (A) side.

Apart from personal choice regarding the CARLA or KAREN release.

The pressing plant used can be noted at the end of the label matrix when viewing some ATCO / ATLANTIC record scans.

i.e.

  • BW = Bestway
  • PL = Plastic Products
  • SP = Specialty Records
  • MO = Monarch

I used to have an ATCO copy, but I think it may have been Canadian. Gave it to John Pugh many years ago as it was one title he was trying to collect all the label variations on.

I still have it Mick (it is Canadian btw) along with a small mountain of label variations, issues/promos, different colours etc, plus the equally wonderful alternative version by BL in assorted label variations - I always intended to frame them all up, but I'd need a massive frame :D
