Second Resurrection/second Res$urrection

Posted

Just seen this on ebay, but noticed the name is spelt differently to the one's I'd seen before. Must've had another press unless they decided to label them different which seems unlikely (?)

Different labels in a couple of respects (Stanson Record Company Presents... etc). Never seen this one before and couldn't hazard a guess which one was first.

$ sign inserted as an 's' in the more common one! creating a spelling mistake, that looks to have been 'corrected' on this one.

Nah they probably pressed some more up, but never sold them or something. I'd be surprised if someone bothered to boot it Brett.

not a boot....just two different presses..one with the dollar sign one without...an attempt at politicisation

OK Brett, I'm amending my first theory.

On closer examination, I'll wager that the one that we're all familiar with (as posted by Val) is the second press.... and that the one on the bay is the first press.

On the bay copy, the record title and artist are in the same condensed font, which is consistent throughout the label.

On the scanned copy, the record title is in a different, more rounded, font, inconsistent with the rest of the label.

The word STEREO is also set in a bolder font... different again!

My amended theory also explains why they dropped the word 'Presents' on the second press - The record had already been 'presented' first time around.

Am I being pedantic?

It gets worse....

The Leading (space between the lines) on the Production credits is all over the place on the bay copy - fairly typical of traditional Letterpress printing, whereas on the scan its as crisp as if it had been Macced up only yesterday (artworked on an apple Mac). Not saying it was... but Macs have been around since the late 80's and I feel the 'Dollar' copy is certainly not as authentic (early/mid 70's) 'looking' as the one on the bay.

So, IMO, the later press is the one Without the word 'Presents' but With the additional 'Dollar' symbol.

And the one on the bay, almost certainly not a Boot, Brett.

Think I'll have a crack at it!

No, I like it Steve.

Not a lot... but I just have to own every Soul record ever pressed (if only for one night) or I get the jitters!

My theory is that the "Presents" copy was actually a second issue which was given out at a local music fair in the park to try and reactivate the intetrest in the record. 2nd Ressurection were on the bill supporting a host of Budweiser sponsored acts, and this 45 was designed to be given away to their fans..........

Nah I made that up, but it is plausible :shades:

Band has been recently discovered to be the same group as 6 DEGREE(s) SOUTH (one of the top funk rarities). truth stranger fiction etc.

They made this in LA after leaving their gig as Joe Tex's backing group. Half the band never knew it was issued, and of course, they all though 'Smoke in the Disco' was the side! Every time with these guys!

No one in the band had copies of either 6 Degree South or Second Resurrection. Great guys though, with a long and interesting tale.
