Vinyl is manufactured for the Danish Medley label and have generic plain white testpressing labels and can only be identified from the machine stamped matrix information:
Side 1: MDLP-6329 08-24620-20-1A-1 A
Side 2: MDLP-6329 08-24620-20-1B-1 A
The matrix pattern suggests that this testpressing was manufactured by CBS International Manufacturing and Service Center in Haarlem, The Netherlands. "08" hints at vinyl manufactured in the Netherlands for non-CBS Records labels, "24620" is a job-number assigned by the pressing plant as the catalogue number is stanped before the matrix number. "20" is the format code for a 12" single or LP.
-1A/B manifests mastering and side numbering - the following "-1" identifies the stamper - as you should expect with a testpressing, this copy is as such manufactured from the 1st set of master matrices, the first set of stampers.
Test pressing LP's are normally manufactured for test purposes only - simply to check the sound inherent in the stampers produced from the master.
Testpressings are normally send to the label and mastering facility and to the artist - sometimes to select reviewers or magazines with a longer production period. Only a very few of these are manufactured and very seldom offered for sale.
Vinyl is placed in a polylined sleeve with handwritten catalogue number.
This copy was bought in connection to a major renovation of the studios in the late 00's - authenticity is beyond any doubt.
Condition: VG+ (Vinyl and Labels)/-:
Vinyl is overall bright and lustrous - has a few light and inaudible surface scuffs paired with a ligh degree of light and fine sleeve inflicted wear.
Labels have a couple of simple and light spinetraces - vinyl itself is VG+, labels are near mint.
