In June 2009 a US seller (sophiabellagio) listed a onesided 12" Test Pressing
with white labels. The B-side was said to be blank. The seller also said that there are copies with only the
B-side as well and with blank A-sides. This is how the seller described it: "It's a 12" black vinyl record
with a blank white label. On one side there is music (it appears exactly as it does on the commercial
release) and on the other side there is a blank groove featuring an oscillating tone. It is in a white paper
EMI sleeve that features some print on it (telling you how to take care of your record etc.) and someone
has written the matrix number "12 BRO 92Au" on the upper left corner and "The Boys!" on the upper right
corner in black ball point pen. I can't remember how I got it but it was probably either from a Bronze
Records employee or someone at the office of Doug Smith".
In June 2011 New Zealand seller maidnhed sold a white label copy together with a white label copy of the 12"
version of Golden Years EP for $82. He described them as "BOTH WITH PLAIN WHITE LABELS(THOUGH A LITTLE DIRTY SHOWING AGE ), BOTH IN PLAIN
WHITE SLEEVE, IN GOOD CONDITION WITH SOME SCRATCHES...I AM SELLING MY BROTHERS RECORD COLLECTION...
A LOT OF THEM DON'T HAVE THE COVERS WITH THEM AND SOME OF THEM DO BUT I UNDERSTAND A LOT OF THEM MAY HAVE COME FROM UK OR
EUROPE AS HE ACQUIRED A LOT OF HIS COLLECTION OVER THEIR, FROM HIS SEVERAL YEARS SPENT THEIR ON OE. POSSIBLY UK AS HE ACQUIRED A
FEW LPS FROM A WORK COLLEAGUE WHOSE FATHER WAS IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY" In an email he also wrote about the white label
Motorhead records that "they originally came from a
record collection from an executive of a record label. He had passed them on to his son sometime in the mid 90ís, who from what
my brother told me was a spoiled brat and didnít look after them as they should have been, and hence the condition of some of
these. My brother bought them off him when he was living with him in London late 90ís-2000. Now that he has passed they have
been left to me which I am selling off for my nieces trust fund. I can honestly say that the labels look pretty good to
me apart from being a little dirty/worn". Someone on Facebook at the time for the sale wrote about maidnhed
that "the Iron Maiden signed drumhead he is selling is FAKE".
