I am new to these forums, but have joined in the hope of resolving something of a mystery.
I have a 1975 'EMI2375' Bohemian Rhapsody + I'm in love with my car, but the label on BOTH sides is for Bohemian Rhapsody.
The label on both sides is exactly this one ---> link
I have looked through my collector books and scoured the internet but can find no reference to such a pressing - either as a standard release, error or forgery. Maybe this is commonplace, I have no idea, my book does not list anything worth <£5, but this does not explain the lack of google results.
Can anybody shed any light on this please?
Well I have to admit that as a new member and first-time poster on QZ, this reply did leave me somewhat puzzled.
A little research finds that 'Casper' is the name by which 'brENsKi' refers to 'thomasquinn 32989', both of whom are senior members of QZ.
Further poking about finds that brENsKi obviously wants the 3 track CD on offer by 'thomasquinn 32989' for finding the 'hidden post' in the competition he started today.
I can tell already that while brENsKi is a 'Deity', he is not a moderator or he would be ineligible to win the CD.
So, I am not afraid to do a little research ... even if it's required to understand the response to my question ... which again leaves me wondering why jumping all over the internet via Google still yields absolutely no clues as to why my single has the same Side-A label on both sides.
Any ideas anybody please?
Please remember I am a Newbie here, so please try not to be too cryptic
best bit of subtefuge yet. you can own up now Casper...forget all that stuff in the main thread about embrant "discovering" your "hidden thread" - we BOTH know this is the genuine thread - hand over the IWIA cd
"Mr Grizzly" ...good one, great new nickname....
PS - for anyone else please note " :-) "
LOL ... but what about my single ???
Quick update ... as I continue hunting.
This looks like a fairly definitive list ---> link
It even has fakes and impossibles listed ... but no entry for my single ... any thoughts anybody please?
It is an error when they stuck the label as it sometimes happens. I guess that one side stills play Boh Rhap and the other one plays I'm In Love With My Car.
I have an Australian Invisible Man 7" like this.
Generally, these records don't sell much more than the regular issue. Maybe a few €/$/£.
Yeah generally this is what we would call a "mis-press". Interestingly I own at least two mispressed items I can think of off the top of my head, a 7" of "Hammer To Fall" with the label for Roger Taylor's "Man On Fire" on the a-side, and a CD of "Return Of The Champions" with the first two sheets printed twice so it actually misses all the correct pages. Had the latter signed by Paul Rodgers, so IF it were to ever be sold, it would have two very interesting causes for a sale tag bump :-)
