I got my bluegreen DECCA logo LP today
Here is a qouple of pictures, one of the logo itself and the other one of the new label design that I have not seen before on LK4605
The cover is a nonflipback version. The label is rather interesting as: - Tax code K/T or J/T is missing! - The Publishing year is at the bottom of the label - It is on a grooved pressing The label design is almost identicat to versions used on nongrooved pressings. Taking these details into consideration, I'd say that this LP is made in 1967. As the cover is a nonflipback, I am almost 100% that this is a 1967 LP
Then we have another LP that is for sale right now on e-bay that has the bluegreen logo, the cover is a flipback and the label has "Recording First Published 1964" = this has to be a 1964 LP.
This means that there has to be two batches of the blue green DECCA logo made, one in 1964 and the other one in 1967
I don't think it has already been discussed before and while checkin' the great Emilio's site, I was sticked to the South African pressing. On the rear it is note " Free inside 4 fantastic glossy photographs"

Don't know if some of you ever seen them, but they should be very very scarce now
Here you go , the "glossy photographs" from the South African LK4605 pressing. It has a flipback "Mona" sleeve. Matrix numbers are xarl 6271-1A and xarl 6271-4A. The photographs are on thick photographic paper , not a thin paper insert. I bought this in 1999 directly from a seller in South Africa for 35 euro. I don't know how rare it is but I imagine they don't come around very often.
Congrts. Vinckske. Must be very rare. I saw this record once before on ebay without the photos , and the seller ask a lot of money. Its the first time now i see this photos. Congrts. ( of in het vlaams proficiat).
Truely fantastic stuff ! Like most of us , have always seen the advertising on the back of the LP , I have never seen the actual photos and what they looked like. They simply never appear with the LP. Makes the US 1st LP poster insert look as common as mud.
Thanks Pascal for a great question and to Vinckske for a stunning reply.
Got some nice pictures last night from a collector in France. I actually do not remember if we have got this Matrix combination confirmed earlier. Anyhow, a rare combination that is not seen every day for sure:
