Re: Rare Copy of Havana Daydreamin' LP

Here's another example of a true "test pressing." This is an artist named John Stewart, an album named "Fire In The Wind." Nothing at all on the label.

Re: Rare Copy of Havana Daydreamin' LP

With all that being said, was it common for albums to release "test pressings" before the official release came out? Why would they release a version of Havana Daydreamin' with tracks that don't match the label? Was it a quality control issue or done on purpose? True " test pressings " are actually...

Re: Rare Copy of Havana Daydreamin' LP

Thank you for the information. I have the third version you mention above. However, the catalog # is definitely NOT ABCD-914a. It is ABCD-914, same as the official version.

It contains an alternate version of "Kick It In Second Wind" and the unreleased song, "Please Take Your Drunken 15 Year Old Girlfriend Home." Do...
