As the next Saturday, in many cities around the world, fans will celebrate The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever, let’s start to give a look to different pressings from the original UK single front cover.
This is the ultra-rare "Wuthering Heights" from EMI Odeon (31C 016 06894), the first of two Kate '4 Sucessos' EPs from Brazil ✊🏻🔥
1978 Brazilian only solid centre 4-track 7" vinyl EP in thick card sleeve, with exclusive artwork on both sides.
A stunning photograph by Gered Mankowitz🔥
You can recognise the back sleeve by the Portuguese text at the bottom right.
In 2017 one copy in EX condition was sold for $280, another one for £465.
In 2016 another beautiful copy was sold for... £750. Really🙄
Let’s say I wouldn’t pay that kind of money not even for a copy of the even more rare Uruguayan TKI, with unique picture sleeve, in mint condition🤷🏻♀️ I’m writing this because a few days ago someone asked about the authenticity of an item for which a fan payed $2300 (it was the acetate of “Lord Of The Reedy River”). I’ll share here the words with which i ended my answer. The trick is always the same: never pay too much.
Especially if you’re not 100% sure about the authenticity of the item.
Anyway, this EP is a beauty. A favourite😍
P.S.: a tip... if you’re looking for Kate items to add to your collection, now is a good time to buy on Ebay. A lot of very good offers. And when unsure, ask me before you buy🔥
While we’re waiting for The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever, let’s go on with the different picture covers from around the world of “Wuthering Heights”🔥 “Cumbres Borrascosas”, 1978 Spanish wide centred 7" vinyl single for Wuthering Heights” (EMI – 10 C 006-006596) ✊🏻🔥 Unique picture sleeve with Spanish track titles on the back cover and the text 'No 1 En Inglaterra' on the top left corner.
This is the third release of the single in Spain. The first sleeve release is easily recognisable because it misses both the text “Nº 1 in Inglaterra” on the front cover and the Spanish track titles on the back cover.
It comes in a card sleeve easily damaged and you’d consider yourself very lucky if you menage to get a copy of this beauty in excellent condition.
Many Spanish copies have writing on the sleeve or a price sticker.
This picture sleeve in particular is very hard to find with no ring marking on her beautiful face.
I still miss the first pressing, as i still haven’t found a beautiful copy of it.
As a collector i prefer to wait the right time, rather than add a copy in poor condition to my collection. There’s no rush...

I couldn’t wait,
The sun was up for far too long today,
And I can’t see straight,
But the two of you look awfully pretty,
You’re fucking beautiful!” 🖤🔥 #alkalinetrio, #cookingwine, #records, #punkrecords, #myvinylstop, #vinyl, #myvinylcollection, #punkrockvinyl, #igvinylclub, #vinyligclub, #vinyladdict, #vinyladdiction, #vinyloftheday, #recordoftheday, #recordcollector, #recordcollection, #vinylcommunity, #vinylgram, #vinylgeek, #vinylcollective, #vinylclub, #instavinyl, #colouredvinyl, #vinylcollection, #vinylcollector.
