RCA ’71 Japanese Compilation

Clearing out a backlog of records that required attention (mostly in need of serious cleaning before being placed onto their permanent shelves) and I stumbled across this Japanese compilation I’d purchased quite a while ago but forgotten about.

Three tracks are featured, Everybody’s Talkin’, One, and The Puppy Song. These are the standard releases of these tracks so nothing too special there but the sleeve itself is an incredibly thick gatefold which has an inner pocket. There wasn’t anything in that pocket but I wonder if once upon a time there may have been some kind of promotional sheet housed there. The record itself looks to be unplayed so who knows if this was in fact a promo pressing (it’s a white label, so perhaps). If it was, it doesn’t look like anyone cared to give it a spin. Shame for them, nice for me.
