I got my copy five years ago on ebay Not cheap but much less than these days. I have seen copies on ebay and most recently in Utrecht. There are splatter versions with straight lines and “blossom-like” The cut-outs on the label appear only on the label that was on the bottom when the record was manufactured and is due to the tiny granulate particles that came in the press between the matrix and the label. Basically, a proof of authenticity.
I've never seen a Dutch 70s WEA pressing with screwed up labels like the picture shown here. The colors of the vinyl do not look like the pressing I have seen in person either. This copy (shown in Discogs listing) screams "pirated counterfeit". Do not ever accept a copy of this with the poor quality print job on labels.
Hard to find, seemingly only 500 of this. I have read a few people saying they have grey or blue splatters - they are bootleg - this is an official Dutch release and they all have this colour scheme but the colours can vary in pattern/some labels are also a bit wonky. Lucky enough to have one. Cheers everyone, Scott
I GOT THIS AMAZING RECORD BACK IN THE EARLY 1990S AND IT WAS NOT CHEAP THEN!!!!!!!, THIS WAS RATHER LIMITED IN THE NETHERLANDS BACK IN 78 WHEN THIS WAS RELEASED AND I HAVE ONLY SEEN THIS ABOUT 4 OR 5 TIMES AT RECORD SHOWS OVER A 35 YEAR PERIOD, THIS IS MY RAREST AC/DC RECORD I OWN, I THINK IT MAY BE FAIR TO SAY THIS IS THE RAREST EUROPEAN AC/DC RECORD PEROID........WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY????? THIS ONE IS A BEAUTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i am pleased i just added ( after all these years) the new zealand powerage pressing to my collection with the alternate sleeve coloring and the slightly alternate track order on that 1981 powerage pressing..............
