Live single of Coming Up on Columbia label
This single was actually added to the McCartney II album in America because the live version charted there and was not on the album. Therefore they included a 1 sided 33 1/3 7" single so they could sell it as 'includes the hit single' and sell more copies.

Double Fantasy - Australian Geffen pressisng.
There are 2 very distinct pressings of Double Fantasy without going into label and sleeve variations.
First (early) pressings come on 'Stirling' stampers hand written details as almost all other countryies with AUS in the run out groove to identify Australia. Upon hearing of John's death, local Warner Brothers grabbed the master tape for making cassettes, ran that to the cutting studio and cut extra stampers for local use. These are identified by having stamped matrix in the run out groove. There are also several label and sleeve differences but these 2 stamper differences are the most identifiable.

Test Pressing
I have a 7" test pressing of Les Mccann's Liberated Woman on the Speciality Records Corporation label but on the reverse side of the record is a pressing of Led Zeppelin's Candy Store Rock, no label but the matrix # reads as SS-ST 31756-1. There is a date stamp of May 28th 1976 on the Les Mccann side.
Two questions I would like resolved 1) which was recorded first?
2) any idea of a potential value?
and thanks.

At The Star-Club In Hamburg, Germany 1962 (1977 UK 26-track double live LP historically recorded by Ted 'King Size' Taylor when the band were, according to John Lennon many years later, at their performing peak as a live band. By some minor miracle, it was also a night in which Ringo was deputising for Pete Best on the drum stool. The gatefold sleeve has light general wear & a 1" paper scuff in the top, yet both vinyl discs are near 'as new' LNL1)

Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings
Have just purchased Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings Volume 3 and have only played the first disc. I have heard some of the numbers before live at the Grand Theatre Swansea. Have seen the band 3 times and enjoyed it immensley each time I've been. The discs have got some classic numbers on them eg. Down Home Girl, Hit The Road Jack, Midnight Special, Bright Lights Big City etc. Well worth the money.

The Beatles Collection (Australia)
Hi guys, your chronology is slightly out on this product.
In Nov 1978 Australia used the UK manufactured flip top box with Australian albums in it. When we ran out of stock of this box, it was still very popular, so locally made boxes where the entire lid lifted off were used, these were the blue ones you mentioned (released April 1979). There are variations in texture of the fabric on the box and some came with and others without the album titles on the rear of the box. This GOLD covered one was issued to celebrate that fact that the BLUE box had sold sufficient copies to be awarded a 'Gold Record' so that's why it's covered with gold coloured fabric.
This Gold issue came out in late 81 or early 82.

This was issued to celebrate that fact that the original blue box edition had sold sufficient copies to be awarded a 'Gold Record', complete with the indivially numbered certificate.Amazingly, the box on this example shows minimal wear with fully intact gold covering and just a small amount of foxing, whilst the vinyl shows very little evidence of play. A fantastic example of thie rare version of this amazing set! BC13)

I have a copy of Sabotage with serial nems 9119 001 deluxe on back sleeve and spine, however the label has the nems black label and silver lettering but not the records and tapes writing.

I brought the record in 1978 so I am aware this is not a first press but I can find no reference to this label or issue

any assistance greatly received and appreciated.

The vinyl has been professionally cleaned & although there is a handful of spindlemarks bythe centre hole, there is little lessening in soundquality thanks to the quality of sixties British vinyl.
