Rock Generation Volume 8, released in 1972 was supposed to feature demos by Soft Machine on side one, and cuts by Mark Leeman Five, Deep Feeling, T-Bones, Ingoes and Dyan Parker on side two. But the producer Giorgio Gomelsky changed his mind in the last minute, and used tracks by Davy Graham on side two instead – thus dropping the Deep Feeling, T-Bones, Ingoes and Dyan Parker tracks.
When “Rock Generation Vol. 8” (BYG Records 529.708) hit the streets, the record played the new revised track listing, but the original one (with Deep Feeling etc) was wrongly printed on the front and back cover, plus on the record label itself! This first edition was quickly withdrawn and subsequent pressings had the center label, then the sleeve, corrected. All these LP versions were issued with the same catalogue number.
Record and Vinyl in good condition. Vinyl has some minor pressing dips, cover has a number inside. See photo’s for details.
