In Reply to: RE: EMI / Angel red label mono classical pressings (cover variations) posted by frankwm on August 31, 2020 at 03:31:35
Thanks very much for that info -- very helpful. I was unaware that they produced two "packages" simultaneously. No "RT" or "XT" on my copy (just "XAX 1005-2N"), so obviously a later pressing. I knew it was not early-early, but I've had trouble trying to place these plain-brown-cover pressings *relative* to the photographed covers. So it sounds like there may not have been a strict sequence.
For obvious reasons I've the UK pressings - but EMI appeared to retain the Purchase Tax code on these UK exports - this is 35162.
frankwm, I think you inadvertently omitted a verb from your last post ("I've [...] the UK pressings...").
Ah, so *that's* a Purchase Tax Code. My pressing of the Prokofiev concerto has a similar "R" and "T" on opposite sides of the spindle hole. When I first saw it I couldn't figure out what it was. At first I thought maybe previous owner initial stamp, but it's raised (not indented) and looked too professional for owner initials. Thanks for enlightening me about that!
