Garland Green - Jealous Kinda Fella

Recommended Posts

Perhaps we could try to get a good list of tracks like these. Not just Records where one is green and another yellow, but songs where the labels are a totally different design.

Voices of East Harlem springs to mind. 2 or is it 3 different designs, all considered to be originals.

I think a lot of different labels of 45's are just down to different pressing plants, simply they didn't have the same colour paper, or the italic printing device as another plant, have read this somewhere (probably on here). Guess it was just pure economics of the time.

going back to the early 80s and the excellent Blackbeat magazine - I remember an article by Tim Ashibende about the Velvet Satins and the variations in label designs - issues/demos, west coast/east coast, even a Canadian I believe. I think (and I'm not entirely sure) that he had uncovered something like 17 different label versions.

I was just wondering if the different writing on the labels meant anything?  :huh:post-1182-1109720854_thumb.jpg

Anyway, still got a bargain only $1.99 (about a quid!).  whistling.gif

They are from different pressing plants. Often west cost styrene copies of records have larger type on them, e.g have a look at Motown pressings.
