Code: Select all

7": 1987 ZA (EMI; EMIJ 202151-7) [misspressing]

- Album?
- Single?

hi, now i´m home and have this pic:

this South African 7" is bizarre...

the A side plays 45 RPM
the B side plays 45 RPM but the speed is still slow... like playing the 45RPM record on 33 ¹/³ speed
as my record player can´t run 78 RPM i´m not sure if that´s the correct speed on the record.
:roll:

i also have the South African editions of "Opportunities 1985", "Suburbia" and "It´s a sin"
everything´s correct with the 45RPM speed.

on "Suburbia" it plays the album version as well, but with an early fading.

hmm... okay, so I'll put the both 7" (Rent/Suburbia) in separate entries then!
Thanks for that info!

IIRC, the Opportunities 7" plays the rare Matrix mix of the track.
