Of course I agreed with Rik vacations always good for health and we all need you to keep on rockin' and rollin'
Btw, I've just got a LK 4661 that is not mentionned on your page but you're forgiven there's so many that no one even the best ones could know exactly how many one could find, that's record's collecting but it's also a great pleasure hopefully
So here's my record, I have no more informations but as you could see on my pictures ( that you could use if you want to add them )
the text on the labels is a little bit different, there's also a WHITE sticker below the reference LK 4661 where another reference is added GP359 and last, it's a non flip cover with this text "Laminated with 'CLARIFOIL' made by British Celanese Limited. So, my question is, did they released this one before Design No 6 / Version 1, before Design No 12 / Version 1 or after these two ones ??????

Thanks Pascal for this update. I have added the information to my page. I will do some more with the Printed by section before I put it out.
This label is most probably made in the mid and late 70's. The label is basically the same as design 6 version 1, the only difference is the 33 rpm added. The last design 12 do also have this 33 rpm so this new one has to be later than des6/vers1 but earlier than des12/vers1
The GP359 sticker is interesting. My thoughts on this would be that this LP is an export from UK to France and sold in France in the mid 70's. The sticker is exactly the same as on most of my L'age D'or serie of LP's, number is different but the design of the sticker is identical. Based on this I would be 99% sure that this LP is sold in France
You're absolutely right for the GP sticker, I've checked and found it, on others French Records I own, in my French Only Stones Discography books, this one's not listed so it could be an Export one for FRANCE. that's what I think too. Btw in my book , see below, most of the reissues or Import Lp's from UK to FRANCE should have this Sticker on the picture sleeve (Very Hard to find now, because many people removed them from the sleeves) and the main thing for these export LP's from the early 70's is that the label is white.
No more better quality scan from my book sorry , because it's very small in the book , I've edited the pic to show you a better view!

I am planning to make some changes to the setup of the labels on my Decca page. Until now I have only listed the combinations of labels on side 1 and side 2 of the LP. This is a bit of a struggle to do and the logic of the versions is kind of lost.
So, I separated the label versions from the combinations on the vinyls. I'm first listing side 1 versions and then side 2 versions. Then the third section is for all combinations known to exist.
Have a look on this "proto type" page not yet published Comments please. My plan is to do all albums as per this new set up

Your test page looks very good Janne - agree with Rik about the black one ; ) I got two versions of the "missing MONO LK4605" cover: one flipback and one none flipback - just for the record. Keep on your good work - I know that you must spend a lot of time doing this !!

Thanks for your comment guys.
I have decided to do the change on the label documentation like this: Section one: all versions that I have found on side 1 of the LP Section two: all versions that I have found on side 2 of the LP Section three: All combinations of labels on the same LP
No pictures of labels will get lost compared to what I have now on the page, some of them will just be duplicated. But the number / code to give to the labels still gives me problems. I have not yet decided on how to do the numbers
As text: Side 1 / Design 1 / Version 1 As number: S1/ D1/V1
Then concluding it with the LP catalogue number like this: LK4605/S1/D1/V1 This would then be a unique number for the specific label. This would be quite a detailed way to do it. This is exactly how I have set up the TEST2 page on the link above. My question is then, Is this too detailed and too difficult to follow the logic? Am I getting into too much of “train spotting” as they say in the UK?
I have also got a suggestion to keep it simple and just divide the label design into two major ones: Design 1: Made In England Design 2: Made In England By The Decca Record Co. This would be the top text on the labels. All other differences would be on the version level like this:
Side1 / Design 1 / Version a Side1 / Design 1 / Version b….. and so on
The problem I see here is that the possibility to keep the versions in some kind of age bracket is lost. If I get a new version printed early in the production, I may have to give it a number like Design 1 / version p…… which gives the impression that it may be a very late pressing….hmm. Suggestion one is easier to keep the version in the correct year bracket as that is decided very much by the label design.
The thing is that I need to do something on the numbering logic when I change the set up and I am now getting the impression that collectors out there are beginning to use my numbering system to document their own collections as well as listing what is missing from their collections. Got several mails indicating this. So this numbering / coding thing at first may seam to be non important, BUT it actually is VERY important. I need to do a coding system that is good and can stand for at least 10 or so years. I can’t change the numbers every second year or so, I need to do it now and stick with it.

The black page on the TEST link here above was something I just did for fun, BUT it actually came out pretty good. I have some problems to get the buttons on the top of the page to look good on the black bottom. I need to do a bit of work still on that one. Would be nice though to go for the black version at some point in the future.
More seriously, when I worked on my Blog, I've tried several themes, and finaly, I'd choose the black one cos' it fit better with my tons of pictures.For the buttons, the deal is to find a trick with another color, I had some widgets on Blogger but they don't work everywhere. For the pictures, Black is the color, after that , you have to use at least a white color for the text, I'd choose a yellow one and it was good.
