Recently picked this one up - "Daydream Believer" from Lebanon:


Went to the Dallas record show yesterday and found a few LPs
and singles for sale, but nothing I didn't already have.
It's encouraging to just see some of the dealers offer their records for sale.


Some sealed promotional Rhino LPs from the '80s:

They sliced open the shrink wrap (leaving a small cut in the jacket)
to put the promotional stamp on it. I guess a DJ wouldn't really care.
In years of collecting I've never seen these promo versions before.

The 'Birds' hype sticker has the hearts for pegs around the "S",
so this should be the RE-1 version, but I'm not going to open it to find out!



Updated the UK label Lightning's release of "Head".
Thanks to Ben Belmares for sharing his Monkee Business Fanzine
issues which told all about this first release back in '92!

It looks like they pressed 1500 copies, not 500. That makes sense because over
the years I've noticed that more and more copies have come up for sale.
However the numbered limited edition copies (only 193 made), are still very hard to find.



Beautiful stock copy of this 1969 EP from Brazil. In all my years
of collecting I've only found promo copies of this hard-to-find record.




Updated the 90's Rhino CDs for the original nine studio albums by adding
the gold stamped promotional pressings plus BMG and CRC club versions.

The club versions don't have any different mixes on them so they aren't unique sonically,
but I'd like to at least show what's out there for other collectors.
I was a member of the BMG club back then and got the first 5 CDs that way.


I'm going back and adding in promo copies of every CD I can find.
Many thanks to Ed Reilly for sharing his pictures.

Ed also helped me update the pictures for the
90's Rhino cassette tapes which are so very hard to find.


Also added pictures of the Columbia House Arista Greatest Hits CD
which does have a unique mix (for that time)
with "A Little Bit Me..." in mono with the hand claps,
whereas the commercial version was in stereo without the hand claps.
