3553-lsp-1977-side1

Disc: (1977) Black label, dog near top. (Does not exist)

This record does not exist. I have seen platinum3 and gold4 plated display records available online and in at least two cases this 1977 label has presented itself. In both cases, side A. This is here as an interesting side note. There is no logical reason for this label to exist as at this time there only existed at this time ACL-7007 Frankie and Johnny on the Pickwick label and APL1-2559 available in Canada on a tan label.
