If you think the details I'm giving here are not correct, please share your thoughts with me, using the e-mail address email@example.com and correct any error I did, helping to build up a great reference site for all the bruce collectors. If you have better photos than the ones I collected about the item in question, you can send them in jpg format, ideal size is 200 - 300K, I'll manage to cut and compose them. Don't ask for more info about the items, because I just publish what I get from collectors, I have no items to check directly. Many photos come from the Brucebase vinyl vault and/or Brucebase studio boot, which are precious sources of information that you should always use to integrate mine. Don't ask for information about buying or exchanging the items described in this pages, the information you can find here are for referential purpose only and you would get no response.
Deluxe b/w sleeve cover. Originals first 100 copies pressed on blue vinyl. The first 25 were packaged with a 44-pages book of lyrics!
The colour of the writings on cover may vary. Mainly (and originally) blue, but may also be gold, or red, or purple. Quite all versions but the blue one have blank labels.
Repressed with a b/w insert, on black vinyl, with matrix MOD 1012.
Also repackaged (the MOD one) with THE TIES THAT BIND name. Pay particular attention to the inner sleeve. Some copies have a deluxe picture one, other a bare white one. The sleeve seems not to be related to the 'originality', but this seems very strange. Probably the very first copies had it, even if blue copies without deluxe inner sleeve are around (maybe lost or ruined?), but, more strange, black copies WITH sleeve have been seen….
