It is mind blowing and depressing to realize the "value" of our hard earned cash these days.
I have a small stack of double/triple buys of albums from the cull.
A DTT is in the pile. It is a later, MCA rainbow. Since you'll just have to do some bin diving and check the record label, should be just a matter of effort.
In the event you come across a sealed copy, I notice the Backstreet WILL NOT have a bar code. That's typically the easiest way to determine an early press of certain material. In this case, I'm not certain how to determine the lineage from there?
I must correct my earlier claim on my TP debut. It is a SHELTER, yellow label.
It appears Shelter must have been absorbed later by Backstreet, which was distributed by MCA? The record label thing gets confusing.
Maybe someone can chime in for some history. I think bdp24 may be able to shed some light on the label history. He is the R&R history guy.
In any event, I played a side of the TP debut. My copy is a level down since it wasn't a sealed album. The sonics however, are reasonably close to my DTT.
I notice REALLY great presses can be played at low volume,and the dynamics/punchiness of bass,drums and cymbals can be easily noticed.
"American Girl" is such a great Rock and Roll tune. Love the jangly, Roger Mcguinn-Byrds guitar tone.
