 The narrow dinking perforations on the last pair of labels are unusual for an A&M product. A&M records were usually pressed by CBS at this time, and CBSes have wider perforations, when they are perforated. My copy has these narrow ones, and the style of the matrix number indicates that it is an EMI custom pressing - EMI (and RCA) dinks are comparatively narrow. ("Astonishing." - Editor, smothering a yawn.)

 @CHSP2619, it is a different press. It looks so lonely by itself, why not upload the matching 'B' side....

 Quite happy for image to be removed if consensus is that it is unnecessary.

 @CHSP 2619 Yes your image has a different dented label area around the spindle hole than the image of sladesounds. And probably a different cutnumber (A5/B6) although we don't know for sure. But I'm not sure if we should add images of all different label areas and/or cutnumbers if the rest of the record is the same?

 Risking going OTT-added different pressing of green vinyl (A5/B6)

 Promo label scans uploaded. At Hatfield Polytechnic (now the University of Hertfordshire) in Feb 1979, the band decided to drop a new, untested song on the crowd. The gig was recorded by the BBC, and was the band's first live TV appearance. It was a risky venue for demoing a new tune, but Message In A Bottle went on to become their first U.K #1.

Live in Hatfield
