Hi,

Please can somebody help me on this,
Is this version from the photo black or clear vinyl?
According to the barcode printed on the sleeve could be black or clear.
But Barcode printed on the sticker does not correspond to the black or clear, according to Discogs site.
Please take a look at he photo attached.

I would really like to have clear vinyl.
Unfortunately, or fortunately this one is still factory sealed :)

Thanks

Number checks out as clear vinyl on Discogs.
I'd ignore the external sticker and go off the cover.

The clear ones have the sticker over the barcode. I haven’t played my black copy so can’t vouch for the sound quality as it’s still sealed but the clear copy sounds jolly good.

Hmm... Odd.
The code on your external sticker does not match any region's release...
Mine's stored, but it looks pretty much like yours. I can't imagine the same code on black & clear vinyl...
Your best bet:
Message him if you don't want to ask publicly - the vinyl collectors there surpass my knowledge & crazy days of buying multiple formats.
If you find out - please feedback for people searching in the future.
Best of luck,
FWD.

Thanks!
So this one is like a surprise package,
I will know what it is only when I open it.

This one is located in one shop, laying around since day it was issued according to the dust on the sleeve.
Price is pretty much OK, even for the black vinyl version, approx. USD 25,50.
Guy who is working there doesn't have a clue is it black or clear.

There is also another one in a different shop, but this one is certified black vinyl version according to Discogs.

Thanks a lot for the info!

I have a spare copy of the clear edition, both bought from different vendors and both identical on the rear - the sticker covers the barcode. The black copy does not have a sticker over the barcode.

Thanks FWD,
Unfortunately I do not have FB account,
but anyhow I will report here, if I buy it, what was inside.
I do not buy multiple formats either, but I really like this clear vinyl and thought it would be nice to have one.
IMHO I think that this one is the best Morrissey compilation compared to the others.

Rear of sleeves. Sticker over barcode denotes the clear copy.
