Description

 THIS IS A MONSTEROUSLY RARE SUPER UK SO CALLED PYE CONTRACT PRESSING WHICH IN MY OPINION IS NOT A PYE BUT IT IS DEFINATELY A CONTRACT PRESSING OF SOME KIND WHICH AS YET I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO IDENTIFY. ALTHOUGH THESE ARE A WELL DOCUMENTED BUT EXTREMELY RARE VARITION I BELEIVE THAT THEY HAVE LAZILY ATTRIBUTED TO PYE & THE NAME HAS STUCK. 

BEFORE I AQUIRED MY FIRST COPY OF ONE OF THESE EARLIER THIS YEAR I WAS SCEPTICAL THAT THESE WERE EVEN A CONTRACT PRESSING AT ALL AS THEY LOOKED NOTHING LIKE ANY PYE PRESS I HAVE SEEN BUT AS SOON AS I PICKED UP THE DISC I COULD INSTANTLY FEEL IT IS WAS NOT A REGULAR EMI PRESSING & THIS COPY IS NO DIFFERENT, THE EDGES A MUCH SHARPER ALMOST KNIFE LIKE AND NOT ROUNDED LIKE AN EMI LP & THERE ARE SOME VERY STRANGE MARKINGS WHERE THE MOTHERS WOULD NORMALLY BE. ALSO EVERY ONE OF THESE PRESSINGS SO FAR UNCOVERED  SEEMS TO HAVE AN " A " WHERE THE EMI STAMPER LETTER WOULD USUALLY BE AND THE MARKS ON THE MOTHERS SIDE ARE SIDE 1 :-

P

3                     5
