I've got a bit of an oddity and wondered whether anyone else has heard of it.
At a recent record fair I bought a cd copy of Air Conditioning by Curved Air, or at least that's what it appeared to be. When I played it, however, it soon became pretty obvious that despite appearances it is actually Closer in disguise. Despite hours of searching I've not been able to find any mention of such a "mispressing" on the Internet.
Has anyone come across it?

This is interesting. There are quite a number of JD mispressings in circulation, perhaps the most infamous being an Italian version of 'Still', a UK 'Closer' cock-up that plays the same side twice and a rather hilarious pressing of the 'Komakino' flexi with 'home & garden' tips on the b-side, but this is a new one to me. Does it play Closer on both sides? I should ask Erik (JDC moderator) about it; if anyone has the answer it'll be him.

On both sides ? It's a CD so I don't think there's two sides on it.

Whoops. My mistake. Obviously I didn't read the first post properly. Apologies, all.

Yep, there's only one side to it :-)

Thanks for the info though.

Komakino home & garden tips!!? LOL
Like what-how to recreate the shadow that stood by the side of the road.
Although I must say
" How can I find the right way to control
all the conflict inside, all the problems beside,
as the questions arise
and the answers don't fit
into my way of things,
into my way of things" is pretty much the main theme of most h&g magazines ;-)

Never heard of this "Air Division" CD mispress before, sounds quite intriguing!
