Are the copies with the smudged label an original, a second pressing or a booty? Sound quality on mine with the smudged label is fantastic, 70s vinyl by the feel of it, but the label is smudged. I have a good ear for bootleg pressings, and this one certainly sounds like it's the real deal. I could be wrong though?

Seems to be mixed opinions on this...

Can someone please fill me in with the full story?

Yes its quite easy to tell the boots from the real ones:

The real one has an Ochre (yellow/orange) label

The boots have a pale yellow/lemon label

Hope that helps!

Twenty one years ago or so ( when I was five, cough, cough) I bought a copy of Pat Brady at Cleethorpes for about £2 and I've always consdered it a boot because of the price. The label texture is pited in places like moon craters. At the very bottom it says '' a division of TB&C Inc'' and the letters 'Inc' have a blob/streak of red print across them. Does the ''original'' have any of these?

I got mine as part of a swap deal for a white demo (british) of Barbara Mcnair. I was assured it was the original, and after reading JMs bootleg guide I still believe to be an original.

The writing on mine is perfect apart from one tiny red spec in the writing on the bottom of the label. The guide says the boots have smudged writing, and originals have very clear writing. As for the diferent shades of yellow, I wouldnt have a clue. What is ochre?? And to confuse what Louise said a bit, mine seems to be a very bright pale yellow? Can that happen. Sorry I know thats not helping much, but it does seem to rest on the writing being smudgy or not.

It would be good to have decent photos in the guide but that would make it way too expensive I guess.

Right, time to put in my two shillings worth!!

My first sighting of the Pages 45 dates back to 1982. The few copies that were around were yellow labels, usually of poor quality with surface bumps or slightly blurred red lettering. The single was originally a 1978 release, and I never ever saw this in quantity, or on re-issue lists, so I am led to believe that this was never bootlegged; just that all the originals are poor quality by sight. Even at that time, the going rate on them was about £5 - £8 each.

Dunno what JM's bootleg guide says; is it included?

My mate Ian's is the same as mine (sharp letters, just double printed, and very high sound quality), but his is slightly off center as well!

I'm going to Prestatyn, I'll try and remember to bring mine along.

How shall we meet? I guess text message, or Sam (or Rob) Messre would know where I am. I'm bringing a record deck so we could compare sound quality as well, as surely a bootleg would have inferior sound, especially on a 70s/80s booty?

This needs an answer, and fingers crossed we'll get to the bottom of it this weekend!!!!!
