I just bought a copy of Orchestral Favorites from a local record shop yesterday. When I got home I took the record out of the sleeve to find that both sides have a Side II label.

Does anyone else have a copy like this? Do you think it makes it more rare or is it just a flook

My copy of "Uncle Meat" is like that. I also have a 45 rpm record that says 54rpm.
I've never seen any records up for sale, specifically because they have a label misprint. I imagine it is more of a curiosity, than anything else.

You would think that these types of misprints would make a record worth more but according to several articles I've read in Goldmine magazine over the years, they almost always DECREASE its value. That always seemed odd to me. When I was younger I collected coins and baseball cards and the tiniest flaw could make them worth hundreds of dollars.

Decrease and rare because when I lived by a record factory would find vinyl double side number in skips with nothing wrong with them but obvious correct vinyl was never in there or if they where they be scratched.

Spelling typos can tell you for sure what edition it is. In books, spelling errors are used to establish whether a book is a forgery or really a 1st edition. But I can't imagine that would matter much to the Uncle Meat LP.

I have a copy of Let it Bleed (stones), cover and vinyl label are for the stones album but when you play it, it's actually "In The Court of The Crimson King". I was real pissed when i found out!

I would just be annoyed with a misprint like that - an original copy of Uncle Meat with the title 400 Days of the Year for Nine Types of Industrial Pollution, on the other hand - that would be cool to have 8)

that is crazy, how do you think that could have happened?

the only thing i could think of like that was when The Gerogerigegege (Japanese "ultrashit" band) released a version of one of their albums on vinyl but the cover, label and everything was purposely made to look like a Ramones bootleg. so imagine when some Ramones fans back in the 80s picked this album up, only to hear strange loud noises.

Why it should be the same as other first pressing of the album unless some asshole pays too much that is what it's worth what can be got in cash for it.
