It Begins Again 77 or 78?

Postby Clive » Wed Feb 22, 2017 8:51 pm

Just noticed the wikipedia entry for It Begins Again states a release date of 14 December 1977.

I always thought it had a 1978 release date in both UK and US.

Does anyone have a US pressing of the LP, what date is on the label and cover?

thanks Mike, that's what I thought. I know wikipedia isn't always correct, wonder where they got the December 77 date, perhaps an old release schedule envisaged a 77 release date.

Paul Howes' book gives the US release date as 12 February 1978, two days after the UK release.

I don't have the original album on UA. The copy I have is a vinyl re-issue on US Liberty and it shows 1978 for both published and copyrighted.

Your question made me also look at the US vinyl copy of Living Without Your Love on UA. It was released in the US on 27 January 1979. However, both the sleeve and the disc label show 1978 as the publication and copyright date.

Here's a scan of the label, Jim. It says 1978.

Frans, I think you must have misread my earlier posting. What I was saying was that labels and sleeves for both IBA and LWYL show 1978.
