DON'T LOOK BACK
Please note: the information
published on this page are gathered from the internet, books, or from collectors
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.
Many slight different versions of this record are circulating. They can be time - ordered with attention to these particulars:
The 'factors' in play are:
1) PUD / non PUD label on record.
2) Detail loss notable on rear of cover.
3) Matrix with / without 'BRE' on b-side
4) Horizontal "buy Pud I" writing on front writing
5) Vertical writing "DON'T LOOK BACK collector's items….." on front, right side.
6) Ink colour for rear
7) Background colour for front
A feasible timeline should be:
A) A first run was no background, Horizontal writing, no Vertical writing, PUD label, BRE matrix, no detail loss.
A1) Then they started playing with inks, and we have the 'vivid colours' versions identical to (A) otherwise. But PUD label may be omitted on certain copies.
B) Then they added the Vertical writing, label is PUD or non PUD. Predominance of 'light blue' copies. Details are ok and matrix is the same of (A)
C) Definitely a second press: Horizontal writing removed, quite all (all?) non PUD labels, loss of detail on rear cover, different matrix, inferior sound, various inks for rear (attention : gray writings on back for 'white' background copies, not to be confused with (A))
Out of this timeline, there is the picture disc edition where probably we can speak of a first run that went out with 'deluxe' cardboard reproducing the cover (with die-cut hole) and a second one came in simple coloured cartoon sleeves. Same matrix (PUD 104, no BRE)
