Found a stock copy of the first single from Ecuador:

It came in this promo sleeve, but I'm not sure it's legit.
Since I already have a promo copy of this record I matched it with that one,
we'll have to see if anything else like this shows up for sale.




Spain's "Daydream Believer" from 1986.

Through the years, I've only seen promotional copies of this record
come up for sale. I had heard that they never pressed any stock copies.
So, very surprised to see this show up for sale a few weeks back; astounded really.

Even as a promo; a very difficult record to find.
As a stock copy this is a one-of-a-kind, perhaps more will surface.

Besides the USA only Australia/New Zealand, Canada and Germany
even issued this record since really Arista only released it to appease Davy.



This year Rhino's "Start Your Ear Off Right" features the re-release
of the first greatest hits package on the Arista label from 1976:

"The Monkees Greatest Hits" - official release is tomorrow.

Thanks to Ben Belmares for most of these pictures!



"Re-Focus" from the Great White North.



Updated the logo at the top, celebrating the 50th anniversary of their 1969
TV special which was featured on the Rhino promo single
from the "Instant Replay" box set. The other record is a Brazilian EP
combining two of their singles from that year.

Also added a button in the left side for the USSR which, like Poland,
released postcards and flexi discs. The flexis have gotten some press
recently because they were made from discarded x-rays and called 'Bone Music'.

Here are a couple which recently showed up on ebay:
