A note on the label scans and sound samples

I’ve attempted to feature the label scan that relates to the issue mentioned in the chart in all cases. Ocasionally records would have had changed label designs over time and it’s not always possible to tell which one came first.

Sound samples may come from LP’s or CD’s and not always from the 7″ release, though where the LP etc. version is known to have been significantly different from the original vinyl issue it won’t be used.

If you believe any of the featured scans or sound samples are incorrect please let me know.
