  • Ohr Balloons

    I crossed "Floh de Cologne-Fliesbandsbabys beatshow" of my wantslist today. It made me realize that the first run of Ohr LPs all used the same Babydoll for the coverartwork and had a Balloon attached.
    Anyone ever seen one?

    just checked my "fliessbandbaby" lp and there doesn't seem to be a an opening for a balloon in the cover.
    had the opal lp without the balloon, former owner must have removed it very carefully though as there wasn't any sign of it ever being touched.

    but no, never seen a copy with the actual balloon.

        Yes I am thinking about starting a career as a balloon bootlegger.
        I am sorry to inform you that your floh de cologne is a second press.
        It should have a little lash where the red lips are printed on the inside. If you want to save yourself 50 ChF use a knife instead.


        See there it is. in the upper right corner.

                My research led me to this. If I ever find an Ohr balloon I will send it to him.

                  I was just wondering if anyone knew how to tell a first press Ohr lp after they stopped doing the balloons? The Crack in the Cosmic Egg book mentions there are quite a few variations but fails to mentioned them apart from the reissues on zyx and pop import in the 80s.

                    even within the balloon first pressings are first and second pressings, sometimes. i've found a site once with a good list of matrixes and all but can't remember it.
