Ever on the lookout for Jim Reeves items, as I have been for over 50 years, I happened to be on holiday in Lincoln, England, recently when I came across, in a charity shop, a copy of Jim’s iconic LP ‘Yours Sincerely’. What caught my eye immediately was the fact that it bore a completely different LP cover to the one I was used to.
The record was very modestly priced, being in a charity shop, and I had to buy it for my collection, even though the cover and record label are both well worn.
What I’m wondering is why on earth would two versions of this major LP be issued in apparently the same year and for the same market? Moreover the picture on the front of this second cover is one I’ve never come across before. The soundtracks are identical.
Has anyone out there come across this second LP before please, or could offer any explanation? Thanks.
Can you take a picture of the different cover and upload it? At the bottom of the box you type into, there is a little icon that says "upload image." It would be interesting to see. "PRS" is the song licensing agency in that part of the world but I am not sure why it has a "T" in front of it. Maybe it stands for The Performing Rights Society. PRS today administers the performance rights and the mechanical rights of musical works on behalf of songwriters and song publishers.
