Hammersmith Palais label mis-press - Midnight Oil

Post by moloko » 21 Jan 2017, 7:20am

Hi All

Just wondered if anyone had come across the following...

I picked up a what I thought was a copy of the White Man In Hammersmith Palais single - labels are S CBS 6383.

However on playing it is in fact Midnight Oil- Best of Both Worlds/Kosciusko - matrix A 6383. It comes in a black standard CBS sleeve and not the Palais 'The Clash sleeves. The Midnight Oil single was released in 1983.

I think probably this was a printing plant error and they put the Clash labels because the codes are almost identical. Technically I suppose it isn't a Clash single as there is no Clash music on the vinyl.

I couldn't find any trace on the 'Net of this error. Anyone else seen or heard ? Cheers

I don't recall seeing anything about this before. Maybe they just got mixed up with the first word of the lyrics!

Could be you are right ... or just a bad day at the record plant.

A very bad day at the plant, given how far apart the two records were released! The

Huh, weird. Discogs lists the A 6383 single as a 1984 Dutch pressing.

Wonder how many of those are out there.

Only recently noticed the dutch 'white man' cuts out the count in on the single, unless its just mine?
