Wow - Canada 7" Single (Gold Vinyl)

This is the Canadian 7" single release for 'Wow', which has been done in gold coloured vinyl. Different colour vinyl has always been a very interesting feature to me because it's something a little different from the norm. I think it would have been nicer if a little more effort had gone into the picture sleeve itself. To me it's a bit bland in comparison to this wonderfully coloured vinyl record. I probably shouldn't complain though. It's more than they did for the Canadian release of 'Symphony In Blue', which only got a generic company sleeve.

As of April 29, 2015 all of the photos I originally had here were removed and replaced with scans. I think with the new scans you can see much better some of the damage this picture sleeve has suffered than you could with the photos I previously had here. Sleeve damage tended to be a huge problem with Canadian and U.S. sleeves because they were very cheaply made out of thin paper to start with, and therefore susceptible to damage quite easily.

This one is considered rare and has become quite expensive through the years. If you decide to go looking for it, don't expect to find a mint condition sleeve.
