The original UK version of the album featured a graphic of a white speaker with soundwaves emanating from it, set on a bright orange background. The cover design was scrapped, replaced by the photograph of a loudspeaker in the middle of a desert that new wave fans are familiar with, but not before a few were printed with the old design.
It goes without saying that these copies are extremely rare. There were only 16 copies of the second pressing of this compilation album. As you might expect, this led to a tense legal battle that lasted several months. By the time Elvis Presley made Speedway , he was nearing the end of his acting career. The film was not well received by critics or at the box office. Rumor has it that only copies were printed. The agent assigned his case is played by none other than the beautiful starlet Nancy Sinatra, and the pair quickly fall for each other.
When it became clear that Capitol and EMI wanted no part of the record, which featured an overdub of philharmonic strings done by George Harrison himself, the Beatles decided to put it out themselves.
The record was later given a proper release in , nearly half a century after it was recorded. They can go for up to 5 grand. Bernie Taupin, who collaborated with John on many of his biggest hits was credited for penning the lyrics, though Elton John would later admit that John had written the song by himself. He gave Bernie the credit to help him get his first publishing royalties. If you think you may have a copy lying around somewhere, now would be the time to start digging.
Though met with critical acclaim, neither the single or the LP sold particularly well at first. Did you think classical music would be left off of this list? Record companies would often enlist the help of relatively unknown artists to provide the album art for their classical and jazz releases.
This particular album cover was drawn by a certain starving artist that was destined for stardom. His name? Andy Warhol. There are only seven known copies of this record in existence. Half soundtrack, half dialogue recording, this record was scrapped when Herman Wouk, writer of the novel on which the critically-acclaimed film was based, threatened to never allow the studio to use his work ever again if they released the album.
Wouk was furious at what he saw as blatant theft of his intellectual property, since the B-side of the record was a recording of the climactic courtroom scene, lifted verbatim from his novel. Columbia agreed to halt the release of the album and destroy all copies. A few employees filched some copies before they were demolished — there are rumored to be close to a dozen that survived. The prices paid for rare vinyl tend to constantly go up as the value of common records gradually decreases to almost nothing.
All those old albums that have been taking up valuable storage space for years may actually be worth something. Sort through the collection of old albums.
Could my memory be off? Not this time. The bonus material gives you an early mono mix. It is note for note an exact replica of my 45 except it is before the double tracked voices were added. I got so annoyed I logged on to Amazon's MP3 to see if I could find a better version and discovered, supposedly, that the version on Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy greatest hits is mono.
I will borrow it from a friend, I will play it through my best speakers, and if it is the better mono version I will rip a copy and use it to replace this one. If the rest of this CD wasn't so good I would have given it 4 stars. A cool concept album about modern stuff you buy. And a song about a girl masturbating as well. But the rest of the stuff here is great. The deluxe version improves on it all by giving us rare tracks and alt tracks and such. The who were right on too.
These are not people who looked at making money and lied and said we don't care about it. Hell no. Because why not?
Not a bad song on here , and it's unusual too , to hear songs about underarm deoderant. What a hoot this is. Not their most popular release for sure. Now this is excitement! The third installment from The Who and it packs a mighty wallop! From Armenia City in the Sky to Rael this album rocks and explodes at the same time.
But, that's not all! This is the Japanese version of the Deluxe Edition and there is another disc full of bonus tracks which include unreleased tunes and alternate versions of some of the songs from the album.
You will be amazed to find something they had not done in a while, an instrumental, and it's called, "Hall of The Mountain King" that is really rockin' with excitement. Within this package is also several paper sleeves of this album from around the world. A true rock masterpiece. If you wish to see a couple of these sleeves, view the main Sell Out page.
There are two of them that come with the Japanese version. There's so much to be heard between these two discs, 53 tracks to be exact, and all is so unbelievable. I mean I love the song, but 4 times. Come on other things could have been on there. Melancholia can not be found on any other version foreign or domestic of Sell Out or any other cd or album.
