If one Paul Revere & The Raiders album reaches cult-classic status, it has to be 1967’s Christmas disc, “A Christmas Present…& Past.”
I have a copy of the Bob Dylan album Blood On The Tracks with five different song recordings on it. Do you know something about this record? The “Goldmine Record Album Price Guide” indicates this should be a test pressing. But mine isn’t a test pressing; it has the regular Columbia label.
I understand that for awhile (I don’t know the dates), labels would release albums in both mono and stereo, and was wondering if, everything else being equal, would an album in stereo be worth more than the mono version? I’m particularly interested in titles on the Columbia label.
The year’s-end release of Five Live Yardbirds coincided with The Yardbirds’ most prestigious outing yet — a place on the bill for The Beatles’ Christmas concerts at the Hammersmith Odeon.
