    Does anyone have one of these to show with a regular 7" record?
    Can anyone shed some information on these?

    Maybe these do not exist and or are extremely rare?

    Ive asked the same question before, either no one on here's got one, or they dont wanna show it off. Some collectors are just really cagey about their stuff lol

    I suspect that this record exists but is a complete one-off, caused by some kind of fault at the pressing plant. It either "slipped through the net" and made it to the outside world or was retained by somebody at the pressing plant or record company and ended up in a collector's hands later on.

    [*NB* as this is purely my theory, I will add my customary disclaimer: I could be talking bollocks, here! ;-) ]

    The thing is that all the collectors who would know the answer have been bullied away from here one by one by trolls and troublemakers supported by the administration of Morrissey-solo.

    The photo to the right shows the 6.5" vinyl on top of the 7"

    This will reignite anyones passion for collecting, it really does give fresh incentive to chase the needle in a haystack items.

    Fascinating! You're right, the missing half-inch is indeed the run-in groove. I'm even more convinced now that it is a pressing plant error. Surely nobody would cut a master without a run-in groove.
