 Site contents

Unless one is seeking true first-off-the-press examples, there is no cause for concern in identifying original pre 1970 issue Who albums, as these were only available during this period.  

All original issues on Track have matte black labels. Track records (re)pressed after 1975 have shiny, smooth labels. The exception is 'Live At Leeds' as all issues have a white label with blue print. First issues of this are explained within the listing set out on this page.  

If an LP has the actual pressing/ printing date stated, this has been identified from the information on the original Polydor inner. *  o/s - out of stock (all examples held now sold)


All the records on this page  have been professionally cleaned and play graded, and unless o/w stated, are
  original issues. The LP discs are placed into a new poly-lined inner, whilst the original inner sleeve is present.
