"Disco 2", vinyl, gatefold sleeve question...

#1 Post by Oznerol » Fri 17 Jul 2015, 9:05 pm

I just put my hands on a very nice condition copy of the Brazil 12" release of "Disco 2". I never had any other copy on 12" of this album. Looking at the three vinyl releases (UK, US and Brazil) listed on Discogs, I see that this is the only one commented as having a gatefold sleeve..is that true?? :shock: Or just incomplete info on Discogs?

I have the US vinyl and it isn't a gatefold sleeve.

Also, rather strangely, the track-listing is on the inside of the album sleeve!

No. it's the credits for the tracks that are printed on the inside of the sleeve for some reason. No idea why, but it has been designed that way.I don't have the UK vinyl so I'm not sure if that's the same design.

The UK vinyl is the same - the credits and the blank TV screen design are printed on the reverse of the card so you have to peer inside the cover to read all the details. They've got a history of printing on the inside of record covers - Bilingual has yellow squares inside, Behaviour has bright red inside, Fundamental has black inside. Even more curiously, the Yes inner sleeve has the same pattern of squares on both sides of the card - but only the outside has the portraits of Neil and Chris. (I'm sure there are other examples but I can't immediately think of them.)
I must disengage your recreational music.

Very interesting! I had no idea about most of this details! Many copies I have are from other countries (not UK or Europe), and that details are missing!!
