sorry to revive this topic, but would any curious/serious collectors care to compare their various edition etchings with the accompanying vinyl colour,ie. if differing vinyl status (transl. or plain black) bare the same ominous stampers (like s-38 & such) to see if this can help dating/eliminating firsts from seconds?

The Rare Record Price guide shows the transluscent version as £80 and the black version as £50. Just for information.

Some guy talked about it in a thread. That's not that impressive from what I see, I'm kinda disapointed (Plus it's 25 bucks each 5 minutes per side xDDD).

had a browse through discogs today and this seems to be a new addition to the UP info:
Textured outer sleeve; printed inner sleeve with rounded corners.
Vinyl is transluscent red when held against a strong light.

Note this version has runouts according printed labels and sleeve.
Side A is OUTSIDE (black label). Side B is INSIDE (white label).
But, to add some confusion, the metalworker, assigned "Outside" to B and "Inside" to A in the runouts. Nevertheless the runouts reflect the actual track order
Labels have a "Double Dip" with the elevated ring close to the runouts, characteristic for Tranco Limited pressings.

heres Tranco Limited:

Tranco Limited

Profil:
Vinyl pressing plant and Manufacturing Division of Pye Records (Sales) Ltd. Located in Mitcham, Surrey, UK.
Renamed to Precision Records & Tapes Limited in 1980 and closed in May 1981.

Characteristic for Tranco LPs is the elevated ring close to the runouts.
Generally, pressings can appear translucent (red) when held against strong light source. This is due to a different vinyl formulation, unique to the UK.

The solid center 7"s usually have a milling around the labels (similar to EMI pressings).

Note: While it's safe to assume that all Pye UK releases were pressed by Tranco, not all Pye masterings were necessarily pressed by Tranco. Pye Studios did a lot of contract mastering for other labels that were then pressed somewhere else, e.g. by CBS. The plant itself is not identifiable by characteristic matrix etchings or stamps.
Pye Records also had a 50% share in the Carlton Productions plant in Ireland until July 1972, where most of the records for the Irish market were pressed. Less
Mutterlabel:
Kontakt::
132 Western Road
Mitcham
Surrey CR4 3UT

[obsolete]

haven't seen this info before so i thought i'll put it up here for what it's worth & archiving.

it's adding more confusion as discogs now lists three translucent versions (just for the UK):
Unknown Pleasures(LP, Album, Tra)FactoryFACT 10UK1979 
 Unknown Pleasures(LP, Album, Tra)FactoryFACT 10UK1979 
 Unknown Pleasures(LP, Album, Tra)FactoryFACT 10UK1979
hope the links work...
