DA CAPO-promo vinyl


...see actual photos I just took. This is unique and like nothing I've seen. It is NOT a bootleg.
The audio is as good as a mint, short run, virgin vinyl audiophile pressing, long before the stamper is worn out.

Vinyl promo labels (I have read) were sometimes contracted out to small plants for pre-release promos.

The label is nothing like any Canadian or US label, promo or not! The theory I've had presented to me by friends in the industry is that it is a label that was created by a small printing/pressing plant (as was often done) and in this case, when the actual label was not available...so they created this one.

Notice the unique way that the LoVE logo is treated by just using simple helvetica text, and the Elektra "E" is black NOT gold; I've never seen that done on a standard label (notice the gold background ink too--very cool and unique, nothing like it on any standard Elektra label)



Etched in trail-off ...
A(-5) EKS-74005A 12-66 [pressing date?] [side 2 - EKS-74005B]

Actual photos of my treasure...






Any thoughts or additional info on promos like this would be most appreciated.

I finally have a definitive answer on how and where this unique elektra label was printed and where the vinyl was pressed!

Steve Hoffman Forum posted by W.B....

...that pressing (Da Capo) is from at or before 1968, by RCA's Smith's Falls, Ontario plant.
Some copies may've used US-supplied metal parts (i.e. from Allentown)

One key is the distinct typesetting and layout. The other is the old style "deep groove"
which was used on RCA Smith's Falls pressings as late as 1972.
