The Best Of Margie Joseph and Hurt Of The City LPs

I have an LP from Germany I think, that came out via Ace Records maybe late 80s early 90. Only info is a one sheet insert. Not sure where i got it from but any info gratefully recieved.  I also have a various artist LP, The Hurt Of The City kent records, in the same format. These are both unplayed by me has my decks went years ago. 

Thanks

Not sure what info you are after...I had exactly the same Margie Joseph white label and insert. I would have been given it by the distributor when it came out 1988 and I was a buyer for one of the high street music retailers. I think it might have come with a repro of the artwork.  I first heard 'One More Chance' off that LP. Picked up the 7" shortly afterwards (would've been a £5-£10 record back then).

I'd have been given it by a distributor to promote orders so a promo rather than test press. Never saw Kent comp white labels when I did that job and I was responsible for buying those but I guess those may have gone elsewhere.

Records were commonly promoted this way at the time. You used to be able to pick up all sorts of promo white labels with inserts like this in non-specialist second hand music shops around Soho. Just about anything on 12' aimed at club market scheduled for UK release could be got that way for pence ahead of its release.

I would of possibly got mine from a second hand shop or record fair at least 20 years ago and they are in very good condition. I know I wouldn't of paid more than a few pound each, no more than £5 at the time. Would these be worth much more now or just an oddity to a collector to have? No intention to sell anything at the moment, but as time goes on

Kent always to my knowledge done test presses.  A mate had the early Anniversary ones on test press and I’ve seen these the before for other releases.  Kent/ace promos were as far as I know the standard issue.

@Ady Croasdell will tell you more.

Kent used to get many of their LPs pressed at a german pressing plant from (I guess) mid 80s onwards. That's why it says "made in germany" on your info sheet. However it's still an UK release.

All correct suppositions and statements apart from a few of the anniversary TPs were skipped because we were late: surprise!
