I've been waiting forever to post a gloat on the VA.
I was culling some old LPs I bought (a 100 LP collection) at a garage sale about 10 years ago, when I came across a mono pressing of Herb Alpert and the TJB's "Volume 2" (A&M LP 103). I slip Side 1 on the platter and start spinning Track 1 "The Great Manolete." A favorite of all here, I'm sure.
But wait. Something's terribly wrong. What I now hear is "What Now My Love," Track 1 from Side 1 of the TJB's "What Now My Love" (A&M LP 104). And the rest of the tracks are similarly wrong.
Wrong stamper or mis-labeled!
I've heard that mistakes like this that slip out of the U.S. Mint into circulation can fetch a small fortune from collectors. But this? IT'S EVEN MORE AMAZING!
So...before I call the major New York auction houses, I thought I'd give you savvy vinylheads a chance.
What am I bid?
with the wrong take for the last song on each side.
They used the wrong master tape. They had to start over once they got the right master tape.
Is it worth more than a normal Mo-Fi pressing of the same album?
I don't know, probably not.
Have Fun and Enjoy the Music
"Still Working the Problem"
Everything (Jacket, labels) is On the Beach, except what is pressed on the record, which is "After the Gold Rush'
A fun curiosity, nothing more
Mistake like this do not increase value, sorry.
The same label was used on both sides of one of the records, and the price was pretty darn good for that year. The condition was only VG to VG+.
Just a little kidding here. (I didn't think I needed a smiley face or a "LOL" for this.....LOL.)
Closest thing I've seen to this were A/B sides mis-labeled.
