Hammer Horror - Japan 7" Single

The artwork on the front of this insert features the exact same artwork that's found on the UK release – except this is a reversed shot. There's also some nice bold Japanese text on the cover as well.

The reverse side of the insert features the lyrics for both Hammer Horror and Coffee Homeground in Japanese and English text.

Japanese releases were normally issued in a green Toshiba EMI company sleeve like the one you see here. However, Japanese white label promos tended to be issued in a plain white generic sleeve instead – but they still came with the picture inserts, or in some cases full picture sleeves.

Despite some minor differences, the record labels are fairly typical to the UK ones at the time. The distribution information is in a much smaller typeset on the outer perimeter of the labels.
