South Africa Volume 24 (SHM 795)
This is a South African edition of Volume 24, which differs little from the UK album. However it will be noted that the back of the cover has "Top of the Pops" and the line "This is our fourth anniversary!" printed in light blue. In the UK, the inks were black and red respectively. The keen eye will spot other differences too - including the fact that the Pickwick logo is gone, and the Hallmark logo has switched to the right-hand corner.
On the front is a price sticker showing R2-25, which would presumably have been added by the retailer. That said, the sticker also has the slogan "Music for Leisure" - very close to the name of a certain budget label which was popular in South Africa...
So far as the disc itself goes, it is marked "Made in England" but again has several small differences to the usual pressing, indicating it was made especially for export. The vinyl is thicker than the UK edition, and the playing area is slightly larger, meaning the groove is not as tightly wound, and the run-out area is narrower. Also in the run-out is the etching of the catalogue number; in the UK it is stamped on, but on this copy is is etched freehand.
But the most obvious difference is in the typefaces used:
All of these minor details suggest that this LP was a 'contract pressing' - in other words, Hallmark-UK paid some other company to manufacture the discs before they were shipped over to South Africa.
