Coasters..pressing Or Not?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just after a bit of advice.

I bought a copy of The Coasters - Crazy Baby in the States for a few cents about 15 years ago.

But I suspect it may be a pressing...not sure.

I have scanned the labels and you can view them here

So did I get a bargain or just a cheap pressing for 75 cents?

Thanks in advance for the advice guys! :wicked:

Mark.

I don't understand that scan - one is a demo and one is an issue!

I never buy issues of this record, it's the hardest of all to tell. It was booted in both styrene and vinyl. Always best to buy a white demo.

Hi Craig mate,

I picked one up in Germany for peanuts that has got the same print fault on the flip. I thought it must be a boot, although I did see a Yellow/White issue that had to be a boot, the 'font' style looked completely out of place.

It's on vinyl and plays great. I'll check the boot delta against mine tonight.

Hopefully that should clear up my doubt!

Cheers,

Jamie

You can't go by that delta number entirely as there are two pressings of this and the other one does not have a delta number.

Mine has the delta 65c-9290, the yellow/white on both sides with perfect labels, AT in the runout, but compared to the disc above, where the surface curves down towards the centre hole, on mine it is more at an angle. The lable is mat and the disc is Styrene(grey edge)?. I always thought it to be original. But I mainly remember the boots with the shiney bubbled labels in about 75. I'm confused.
