Interesting matrix numbers on your Promo and stock UK LP's John. The stock copies has -1A / -2A but the white label promo has -3A
This may indicate that the promo white label's were not the first printings after all? I know that one should not pay too much attention the the matrix numbers when it comes to dating / confirming first or second printings, but still, rather interesting. Coz this LP has an extremely low pressing in total so I would say that the -1A is probably the first one.
What matrix numbers are on your promos out there. I STILL do not have one, planning to buy one tomorrow

Al's Promo copy is now in my collection -3A matrix on both sides on this copy as well. I also noticed that this pressing has NO Mother number and NO stamper letter..... First Decca LP that I have seen without mother and stamper numbers. Tax code is missing as well.
I opened Google and put in Al Katz and found this:
If you have a look at a lot of British exported singles, you'll see that the most of them misses mother/stamper data. Therefore, I'm not surprised at all. On top of that, I use to tell export copies of British singles from domestic ones by the presence (or not) of these additonal data onto vinyl. In other words, if you take a look at the 'made in Great Britain' singles in Danish cover you'll notice that they often miss the mother/stamper data. On the other side, the most of the British albums pressed for the Italian market present mother/stamper data. All the best, Luca
