Steppenwolf / Same Title
Japan Orig. PROMO LP
Victor SHP - 5734
Appendices: “Fine-Textured Different Cover” & “Promo Blue Label”
( OBI is missing / INSERT is not enclosed )
Description: This is scarce Japanese original copy ( released in 1968 ) of their 1st album. The cover is fine-textured on the surface of each side, showing “Japanese description” & “English lyrics”. It’s completely different from US copy. Though the insert is not enclosed, it’s not sure if it was originally issued for this album. The track-list is the same as US 1st press ( See the label’s pictures ).
“SAMPLE” letters are printed in Japanese on each label of disc ( See photos ). And the label is in blue for promotional use, though the ordinary color of Victor Japan of 1960’s is black. OBI is missing. But it’s still very hard to find Japanese original copy of this album even in my country nowadays. Scarce item from Japan to serious collector.
Condition: VG/VG ( Cover / Disc )
COVER: Cover is good in condition, except for partly worn in the middle of top-edge. It’s lightly stained ( browned ) around the rims of back, while being clean on the front. Light ring-wear is also on the back. Otherwise it has no tear, dent, strip & writing…OK.
DISC: Disc is good in condition, keeping glossy. It has slight scuffs, scratches & hairlines in places on each side. There’re some spindle-marks on each label. Otherwise it has none of any serious flaw ( such as deep scratch ), which is to be rated as "VG”. It plays strong on each side.
OBI: OBI is missing.
INSERT: INSERT is not enclosed. But it’s not sure if it was originally issued for this album.
