Ramones - Do you Wanna Dance? b/w It’s a long way back to Germany. Very rare Dutch original 7” P/S. Promo?
Released in 1978 on Philips.
Cat no: 6078 521.
Side A) AA 6078 521 1W 1 670 06 P 1978 1
Side B) AA 6078 521 2W 1 670 08 1
The B side has a sample sticker attached. I know that there are many records for sale, particularly 60s/70s records with these stuck on much later pretending to be original presses. I’m certainly no expert on these. The record and sleeve match up in all other regards to standard pressings, other than slight difference in matrix number as explained below. I assume as so few copies would have been pressed, it may have been used as a promo copy. However, id rather sell it as an standard copy with this sample sticker.
One interesting point: In checking the details on my copy including the matrix numbers, I noticed that the last part of the A side matrix finishes with 1 rather than 111 as stated on another well known vinyl selling site. This may indicate an earlier copy pressed for promotion? I don’t know but happy to hear from anyone if they know.
The vinyl is in strong EX condition. Just a few light crackles at the intros. Plays superbly. The sound quality is fantastic. Retains its shine and I struggled to find any hairlines.
The Labels are in excellent condition. The B side has the sample sticker fully attached as explained above.
The paper picture sleeve is in VG+ condition. One of the better copies I have seen. No seam splits. There is some wear to the edges/corners and creasing with the most obvious to the top left (please see pics). The vinyl has made an impression into the sleeve.
The rear of the sleeve has the remains of a sticker towards the top right side (please see pics).
I have owned it for many years and only played it a few times, storing it carefully.
A really lovely copy of this very rare Ramones release.
Please no offers or asking to end the auction early. I have listed it as an auction for 7 days and will let it run til the end. Thanks.
