Red label Mercury/Canadian pressing/original non-Donna Halper credits

 

condition I'd say vg. Normal wear, some surface scratches but not too bad.

 

Saw it in a local shop $35. Too much? It seems a bit but I'm cheap so thought I'd ask.

Is it the red Rush lettering on the cover. If so, and there's no "ring around the cover", I'd say $35 is not bad at all.

Hey...where's Perry?

No - it's the pink lettering, not sure about the run off groove either. Just has the old credits not the Thanks to Donna Halper version

I decided to pick it up because I wanted the red Mercury label and the original credits. So I guess this is the third issue of the record, the obvious difference between the second and third issue is the red RUSH logo compared to the more familiar pink. As well the dead wax matrix number is the Mercury SRM1-1011 as opposed to the Moon Matrix numbers. The front cover Mercury logo is off to the right like the second issue but it's printed nside a white oval not black.

 

Not as desirable as the first 2 issues of the record, on the other hand, this version would only be pressed for a few months. By the time FBN is released in Feb of 1975, Mercury has changed to the skyline label.
