Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols
(Virgin V 2086)
Notes. This item appeared for
sale late 2017. Here's the supporting
information & photos that accompanied the online auction.
"Here is the story: 1977 Virgin is rushing out "Never Mind The
Bollocks" to the world as Barclay Records (France and Belgium) has
already started to export the French edition to the world. To avoid
competition Virgin try to do domestical pressings around Europe as soon
as possible. In Sweden they ship a bunch of UK sleeves and start to
press the records in Sweden.
At the pressing plant they have just finished to press Swedish charting
artist Jerry Williams latest LP "Too
Fast To Live, Too Young To Die" cat# SLP2604, matrix numbers SLP
2604 A CR/
SLP 2604 B CR. But in a rush at the pressing plant, they forget to
change the Side A pressing matrix when starting to do Never mind the
Bollocks cat# V2086. The result is an LP playing Jerry Williams on side
A and Never Mind The Bollocks on Side B. The mistake is discovered
after only a short while and faulty copies are destroyed at once apart
from this one (and maybe a few others?)."
Side One Jerry
Williams: No Money Down / Git It / Guitar Nelly / Serving Time / Rock On / Look Out Heart
