Interesting pictures and label variations.  The Joe Tex "You Better Believe It Baby"  looks good, is it the west coast demo?  I remember when this was a big record in Wigan Casino, played 2 or 3 times in the night, for several weeks! 

Nice original of Arnold Bryant with the two rings around Mercury.

First heard Brooks & Jerry in Wigan when Dave Evison played it. He said  "If you used to go to the Wheel you'll know this one, if you didn't, don't worry about the beginning"!

This Joe Tex west coast demo looks right in every way!

Monarch press with the right numbers and styrene profile etc.  Also if it isn't an original, why is it very scarce!

Heres one i suspect not many of you have..Not a rare issue but more of an anomaly lol

Odd one here from my collection.Larry Hale Once.Deffo original VINYL Copy with all the right Run out marks.But no title or credits on the Once side.Anyone seen another like it Got to be the rarest copy out there lol😆😆😆..Great oldie from the early Casino era

Run out details are

D 203 A (Note: no dash between the 203 and the A) scratched in the deadwax.

The fakes are a lighter blue/green colour and even though they have the drill hole, the deadwax details are D 203 - A (Note the - [dash] between the 203 and the A20170725_195924.thumb.jpg.e188e9bc4764d6936c5d6673fab7e46f.jpg

Was this a common flaw from the Diamond pressing runs ? .My Kurt Harris 'Emperor's' from the same pressing plant (3 involved for the Kurt Harris and 2 at least for this Larry Hale) has the same missing print flaw on it's 'Go On' side...

Look's like the west coast issue. Doesn't turn up very often.
