You must have been reading my mind - I pulled and played this yesterday and was wondering if it was an Original.

Just had a look and there's an "R" stamp clear as day.

:huh:

Yes, these two look so similar.

I bought the "R" Stamped Original DEMO from Soul Bowl

Whereas The "H" Stamped one the source is questionable.

As mentioned above it is the "H" Stamped copy that is the one to be careful with.

We now have an Example of an Original "H" Stamped DEMO.

This one is an Example of an Original "H" Stamped copy.

The colours and credit layout is different to the Counterfeit Copy, also "H" Stamped.

Somewhere out there I would think there will be a " I " stamped demo to correspond with the " I " stamped issue.

Isn't there also a plain orangey label lookalike stock copy bootleg with no pressing stamps at all?

Yes I believe that there is. Unfortunately I haven't a scan at the moment, I will try to find one.

Sorry to re-ignite a thread that is about 10 months old but it's the only relevant search result.. I have an 'issue' type copy which is yellow (quite a dark yellow) , dark red & black printing, moulded in label, and have had one person tell me it is probably real and one person tell me it is a boot.

BUT then I looked closer and noticed something else which gave me a glimmer of hope.. on the 'Prove Yourself a Lady' side is a very small stamp in the run-out : 'SOLID SILVER'.

I wish I could label scan but I don't have this facility.

Can anyone offer an opinion on this please?

Thanks

Michele

According to JMs Latest guide only the Rstamped are original.

I used to be mad on the compass label when I was young and maybe my mind is going but in the 70s I am sure their was 3 pressing plants used for this record.

I Agree

Throughout the Label I have always been led to believe that 3 pressing plants used.

You are right, there was 3 pressing plants used for originals. H, I, R. stamps used, signify the different plants.

I think one of the various bootlegs has a fake H stamp.

Just a short question: My understanding is, that the H stamped demo is a bootleg. Am I right?

Thanks!

I wouldn't go by the stamps. If if it's an issue they're easy to tell by the label, if it's a demo then the originals are quite thin vinyl whilst the boots are thick chunky ones.

That's fine when you have the record in your hands. But all I have is email communication with the seller :(

They are RCA pressing plants.

H = Hollywood

I = Indianapolis 

R = Rockaway

Well I wish you luck, what is the seller saying it is ? if it's an issue you could ask for a label scan the demo would be trickier.

It's a demo, that's why I asked if H stamped demos are kosher or not. Original issue is dead easy to identify. But demo isn't.
