Sampled by Harry Diamond to truly superb effect in 2000.

 My scanner is unfortunately unavailable for me to do anything, but I have a copy (pressed by Columbia's Pitman, NJ plant, natch', with their label typesetting as seen on the powder / turquoise blue {Images #160985 & 160986}) with a dark bluish / violet color background and silver print a la {Image #479169} - speaking of which, that last-numbered variant was from a plant (in New Jersey, perhaps?) which was famous (or infamous) for pressing for the Stang / All Platinum labels up to 1972, and latter-day Carnival [New York], as well as for George Goldner's Cotique label at the time of Dickie Goodman's 1969 record "On Campus."

 Added dark blue label (low res.) with "Giving Up" as A side and no ZTSP matrix on label. Sorry can't check dead wax either cos I no longer have record.

 "Giving Up" was cited as the A side on pressings from Columbia's Pitman, NJ pressing plant, while "Appreciation" was listed as the A side on Terre Haute, IN pressings. Oddly, both used label copy from Pitman. (However, some Terre Haute pressings used their own label copy variant.) In addition, the original release cited was December 1968 (the ZTSP numbers would correspond); apparently March 1969 was when Shelby Singleton entered into the Share picture.

 >Are you saying that SR 104 A matrix ZTSP 144632 showing Appreciation, actually plays Giving Up, and SR 104 B matrix ZTSP 144633 showing Giving Up, actually plays Appreciation?, because that's another variation<
That's the case on mine - detail is of the side that plays Giving Up

 JJ....now I am confused.....

Are you saying that SR 104 A matrix ZTSP 144632 showing Appreciation, actually plays Giving Up, and SR 104 B matrix ZTSP 144633 showing Giving Up, actually plays Appreciation?, because that's another variation.

I had some written dialogue at discogs over the dark blue label variation, where the A/B sides were switched, on one variant issue, so that Appreciation became the A side, but nothing was mentioned about variation in titles, playing the wrong tune.

If you get a chance take a look at the master release for this at
http://www.discogs.com/Ad-Libs-Appreciation-Giving-Up/master/247405, it should be helpful.

 Thanks for the details, YD - no wonder the printers were confused!
On this turquoise version, the matrix no's on the label and the run-out are in agreement, but the titles are transposed

 FYI there's four known US pressings of this, and I had a hand in researching this for discogs.

"First released in US in 1969, and available in at least four US variant pressings.

#1 Dark Blue Label - Side A - 'Giving Up' - cat.no. SR 104
#2 Dark Blue Label - Side A - 'Appreciation' - cat.no. SR 104
#3 Turquoise Label - Side A - 'Giving Up'- cat.no. SR 104 45cat posting
#4 Shelby Singleton distributed Share Label - Side A 'Giving Up'- cat.no. #104"

 The printers messed up the sides, but Giving Up is the A-side
