Scarce 1st edition shaped picture disc

This was issued in 1984 with the speed noted as 45rpm and blanked out with the correct speed underneath (see back of Bruce's leg)

However this release flopped and the whole concept was revived a few months later in 1985 when an almost identical edition was released with the following differences:

1. No correction to playing speed-noted correctly as 33rpm

2.with cover sticker

This 1st edition is rare and never came with a cover sticker so any offered will have been pinched from the 2nd issue

As is common there is some slight chemical tinting in the middle of the clear vinyl

The 2nd issue suffers greatly from this tinting and is strangely much worse being almost impossible to find a clear copy

A folded plinth comes with this item

NOTE: the 5" format-designed to neaten the shape-particularly when it was a figure-did not prove to be successful sound wise

Sound quality is not good

2nd edition shaped picture disc

This was issued in 1985 with the correct speed noted-33rpm (see back of Bruce's leg)

This release was issued because the 1st issue (see other listings) flopped and the whole concept was revived

Firstly with the correct speed noted and secondly with a cover sticker to draw attention to the item

Unfortunately almost all the 2nd edition had a chemical fault causing the clear vinyl to tint in various shades of brown/gold

With the 2nd issue most tinted quite darkly on one side giving the item a gold tinted rim when viewed from the unspoilt B side

This copy comes with the original folded plinth

NOTE: the 5" format-designed to neaten the shape-particularly when it was a figure-did not prove to be successful sound wise
