What does it mean if there is more than one LP issue in a year in a country?

    I have 5 different UmmaGummas sitting on the shelf. It's a nightmare to identify them. Dark Side I don' even bother anymore.

      Discogs had 2 different 1969 versions of Gal Costa-Gal for a while. One being significantly cheaper than the other. They have since been merged.

        British pressings of US releases are often far superior, for example the British Esquire pressings of US Prestige releases - my Red Garland "Manteca" on Esquire sounds fabulous:



        and the UK United Artists soundtrack pressings are better that their US equivalents, like on the Brit press of the "how to murder your wife" OST:

          Interesting. Now I'd have thunk it would have to be the "unspoilt" original...

          It would be beneficial to listen to the different issues - however, I don't know of any source of digital tracks (neither legal nor illegal) that would actually identify and distinguish the exact sources.

            And, of course, any Jamaican 1st pressing will undoubtedly sound better when it gets to being pressed in another country.

              Not quite all SK... Some of my JA purchases backintheday looked and sounded pristine - these 2 spring to mind:





              Some of the Rockers pressing were terrible though - like this one where the Daddy Kool issue in the UK came in very handy:

                This is not a fact I believe.

                Copies with white lettering have been bought on the first day of release.

                I have a copy where side A is paired with side B, and side C is paired with D (instead of A paired with C and B paired with C)

                Clearly new labels where pasted over older ones ....

                So obviously a missprint; so this might be the really really first press, or not ...

                With these things, I guess no one really knows. One might claim to know, put it on discogs and ask 1000 € for it ...

                  Cat numbers don't mean anything. Some labels use the same cat numbers for all reissues.

                  These three from Red Bird all have the same cat number but different songlists, release years spanning from 1965 to 2001.
