Stars of the Six-Five Special Original Metal Printing Plates for the 1957 Vinyl Album Cover Artwork (Black)
Stars of the Six-Five Special The 1957 Decca Release serial – Decca – LF 1299 has become a rare and sought after 10 inch vinyl. Released in only the UK and New Zealand.
Even more rare than these, are the actual printing plates that were transferred from Decca to the Art Studio Shoot That Tiger. This particular plate is for the Black colour separation and is the only one of the four existing plates that shows both front and back cover artwork. Approx 21×25 inches in metal.
It was likely that a re-release was planned either in the 70s or 80s on CD but this did not appear to have happened, even though the plates are for the original 10 inch vinyl. The album contained such pioneering rock n roll acts as
The Bob Court Skiffle , Six-Five Special
Tommy Steele – Swaller Tail Coat and Singing The Blues
Wee Willie Harris – Smack Dab In The Middle
George Melly -This Train
Lonnie Donnegan. – Diggin’ My Potatoes
Chris Barber’s Jazz Band -I Never Knew What A Girl Could Do
The Worried Men. -Fraulein
A chance to own a rare piece of British Rock n Roll album Cover artwork history
