Experiment IV - One Sided Test Pressing UK 7"

7" one-sided test pressing for Experiment IV. The A Side has the finished paper label slapped onto it, and haphazardly I might add. Not only was it not put on flat, but if you take a closer look at it you will see there's actually two paper labels on it. The edge of the second one pokes out underneath. This side plays the full track for Experiment IV. For this scan I also left the dead vinyl part in so that you can see the matrix number is stamped into it - look towards the top area.

The B Side has a white label affixed to it and plays nothing. This is the side Wuthering Heights would be on. I left the full scan of this one in, so don't look too closely at the dust. Even though the grooves have been pressed into the vinyl on this side, which is actually playable, it's nothing more than an annoying, continuous test noise - sort of a high pitched hum.

This does not come in a finished picture sleeve. Usually you'll find this in a black or white generic sleeve. For a test pressing, this one actually tends to turn up quite often... even despite what some people would have you believe.
