I have a copy of, the C.O.D.'s- I'm a good guy, white demo to boot, shame it plays the below, an unknown, to me, early soul/ blues number. Please excuse my naive attempts at recording I'm still a complete novice. Any help, interestingly the dead wax has the same cat. Number as the one on the C.O.D.'S Tune, howsxthat happen? I'd assumed the record was just mislabeled, it's seems the actual master plate was mis titled. ūüßź

This was apparently what the traineys at the pressing plant were given to work on. Taking a spare printed label floating around and any template to press on a record with.

One would expect that such items would be destroyed but my guess is that some took them test pressings home and they found their ways in record stalls decades later.

FWIW from that same pressing plant of yours I have a labeled promo of Johnny Sayles 'don't turn your back on me' on Mar-V-Lus playing Gene Chandler 'think nothing about it'...

I recognise the song.  I'm sure I bought the record during the mid 1960s in Chicago.  But, unfortunately, I can't remember the artist or song title.  I think it is "Baby, That's a Sign".  or "I Wake Up Crying".  Both are titles for which I have probably 2 or 3, or 4 records with that title.  If I think of it I'll post a video of the record.

Rob, I thought If anyone can I'd, you'd know it.

Don't forget that The Yank is also from Chicago, and his heyday in music there was also the 1960s, so he may well come up with it.  I wonder if he's seen this thread?

Makes sense, the label is slightly mis cut .

Thanks Matt, I see it's quite rare, and at least one more in a mis pressed like mine. Not sure about the trainee theory now. ūüßźūü§Ē

Mis presses can be rare. Yet I doubt many are worth much in collector's circles. The one just like yours that sold on the eVilBay with 1 very suspicious bid at the starting price of £350 is "fishy". 

Even more so when the "right" presses on the Nite Owl label sold accordingly for what it is under £20. It's not even a "soul" record. Maybe a 'meh' R'n'B-rocker-jerker of some sort...

Or if ever there's a new 'trend' amongst collector with¬†deep pockets¬†I might pull out my Johnny¬†Sayles promo on Mar-V-lus¬†mis press playing Gene Chandler for a good profit¬†ūüėõ

I've got one of these somewhere. Never thought of it as anything more than an oddity/mistake and I've certainly never regarded it as having any significant value. Pretty sure it's been mentioned on here a couple of times before too, which suggests it's not uncommon....

It is rare‚Ķ‚Ķyou‚Äôd best do your own research and find out the truth. However, if you want to sell it for ¬£20, I‚Äôll take it and any others you can get!¬†ūüėČ

WOW heard it and gave my opinion. Can that count for "knowing" it ? And I stick to my opinion as to what it is.

Is that what you call garbage or you just use social media to unleash your frustration and be rude to people ?

Educate and tell us what's the story behind that record and how much is it selling for. Researches were done.

I don‚Äôt need to unleash any frustration buddy‚ĶI‚Äôm quite at peace with the world. But when you started rambling on with your inaccurate assumptions, I just thought you should be pulled up.¬†ūüėČ

No rambling on my behalf. You words were not of peace. Your side to the¬†story behind that record¬†revealing it all for the OP and the rest of the world or at least¬†the few of us on here¬†remains¬†untold... Common¬†ūüėÉ

I'm intrigued as to why you think there's demand for this record.
However, I just dug my copy out and checked to verify it's the same as the OP. It is.

As this is the second time it's been played and was originally bought as New Old Stock I'd confidently grade it as Mint-

Feel free to make an offer....

Good morning buddy. 
I never said there was a demand for the record‚Ķ.so no need to be intrigued.¬†ūüėÄ

As for an offer, I’ll happily pay £20 each for as many copies as you can bring me.
