LP/Vinyl....and label differences?

Sat Nov 24, 2012 12:04 am

Since there are many vinyl collectors here I have a question.
Looking through my old vinyl editions that are stored in boxes I noticed that there
are many label variations.
3 examples below........what labels are original and what are re-prints?
I think they did change the labels in the early 80s?
Regarding the bottom one I have a few titles with the 100% same label only the color is black with white writing....reprint?

label titles in pictures are:

none of those are original...each of them were first issued was on orange label in the US and most other countries I believe. The black is a 1977 or post 1977 re issue. The tan labels are also reissues.

Note on your pic of the Love letter album.

It says Dynaflex. This is a very flexible bendible record.

I think the idea was that it was harder to break it.

The opposite of dynaflex is a rigid record where there is no bend.

The rigid records also were thicker as the dynaflex album were very thin.

I always preferred the rigid myself.

Tan label records was mainly produced in a short period in 1976.
They can be more valued then the original.

I've always thought Dynaflex had a warmer more natural sound.

To be honest, I haven't played records for 20 years since I sold them off, so I can't
recall which sounded better.

I dont like the dynaflex editions either
No idea regarding sound though but I have read in the past that the ones
pressed in Indianapolis are the versions (sound quality)
