The Who

A: Be Lucky
The first thing I did when I bought this single was to store the PVC sleeve separately from the vinyl ..... ... if you don't the PVC sleeve will react with the black vinyl and over time it will start to look bad .

Has anyone who owns this record checked the condition of the vinyl recently ? ,
only if kept in the thick PVC sleeve the look of the pink vinyl might now look all discoloured
and blotchy .

T. Rex

A: Ride A White Swan (BBC TV, Top Of The Pops: 12th November 1970)
B: Summertime Blues (BBC Radio One, Dave Lee Travis Show 9th December 1970)
Re telegramsam ,My copy of this looks alright , but my copy of " By the Light of a Magical Moon " has a few scuff marks on the vinyl , I'm sure it can't be the inner glossy white sleeve they come with but several of my recent singles that have that white inner sleeve have had scuff marks since new .

The release date shown here is November 1977 , but i remember buying this as a new release in March 1978 , and on the back of the sleeve below the PYE logo ( might need a magnifing glass ) it says 1978 Pye records ltd .

Does anyone remember buying T.rex singles at the time of release and getting them with the T.rex sleeve all the way up to "The Soul of my Suit" , or was there a cut off point from which they were then just plain white sleeves .
I remember going into my local Folkestone record shop and from about 74-75 they were white sleeves but he swaped the sleeve for a T.rex sleeve , then about 75-76 they run out of T.rex sleeves , i guess he was swaping them for unsold earlier singles , so i found my T.rex sleeves elsewhere .
Also on the back of a T.rex sleeve it says E.M.I. Records ( The Gramophone Company Ltd )
and EMI stopped using "Gramophone Company" in 73 and were just "EMI Records" from 74 .
I have never seen a T.rex sleeve without the "Gramophone" wording .
