MISTAKE ON EDITOR NAME Replied within the last 24h 
By sukiac (2) Jul, 8 2015 7:52 PM
Bonjour ... I read on left of the label-1 under "DATE" ... "ACC'T EleKTRA" ... on the label-2 ... "ACC'T EleKRA" ... An error in the facsimile handwriting !!! ... And other test-pressings SRC exists too with some difference in the 'manual scripture !!! Look for the error ... Regards.

    For to know, it would a verification from each collector ... For exemple, there are also small differences of form in the font characters ... as a capital 'A' pointed or rounded ... Good research!.

    Just checked my copy. Has Elektra written on both sides correctly. How many other copies are there on here of each version, correct/misspelled?

Bonjour ... For the first prints the cover is satin and black drawings are in brilliant ... creating a relief ... Other prints are satin only ... For the Spanish cover it's the reverse! ... Regards.

    Bonjour Vandeebgroup ... Yes they are beautiful and surprising achievements for a vinyl ... for all discophiles the covers printed in France are sought (supports, design, inks) ... worksl ordered by Uk, Germany, Holland ... Here are some of the most striking : Disintegration Fr Italia with strong cracks = Sat./Bri. ... Paris UK Fr Sp = Mat/Bri. ... Paris Eu = Bri./Mat ... Show UK (Fr) Sp = Mat/Bri. ... Show Eu = Bri./Mat ... The Top UK = Sat./Bri./Mat. ... The Top Fr = Sat. + Mat ... These differences are confirmed by the matrices ... Too bad that collectors can not have access to the site and thus bring directly info and photos ... Our Webmaster needs a helping hand to set up! ... Regards.
    vandeebgroup (72) Sep, 13 11:14 AM
    Hi Sukiac. Interesting. I have two copies of Show LPs and the satin (dull) and gloss areas change on both jacket and inner sleeves (look up comments on Show UK 2xLP for my comments). I had wondered if it was a territory difference, but thought it might be a random occurrence when they reprinted.

Specialty Test Pressings  
By jchristophem (171) Nov, 23 2010 3:34 PM
Does anyone have an idea of many of each are pressed(even roughly)?A couple of them sold on Ebay last night for silly money, and i am just wondering how "rare" they are...I know the Lovesong 2 and 4 tracks are quite common, but i had never seen a PYO one before...Just curious.Thanks.

    I say between 6 and 20 euros maxi ... AR et SP are the promos from these test-pressings
    sukiac (2) Sep, 12 11:35 PM
    Bonjour ... Without wishing to disappoint you (why not? It's a joke!) at the beginning of the releases of these "Test-Pressing" it circulated everywhere that it was false pressings with labels 'facsimile' printed handwriting and not labels 'handwritten' as everywhere ... There existed a lot because it was common for sale and not very expensive between 6‚?¨ and 20‚?¨ maxi ... -Esprit and so many others in Europe and the USA offered regularly ... It was easier to find the 'SP' (East Coast) than the 'AR' (West Coast) but at that time few collectors and all beginners had not noticed the big difference ... Today I still do not know if it is authentic or false !!! Regards.
