Offered for sale is a set of five unreleased colored vinyl copies of Bigger Than Both of Us by Daryl Hall and John Oates, pressed by RCA Records for in-house test purposes. These are complete LPs; all have covers.
About these copies: These five copies of Bigger Than Both of Us were pressed by RCA Records in 1976 for in-house testing and were not released commercially or used as promotional items.
These records came from the collection of a former employee of RCA Records.
There are five copies of the album in total, each pressed on a different color of vinyl – red, blue, yellow, white, and green. As far as we know, this set is complete; we’re not aware of any this album existing on any other colors of vinyl.
Each copy includes a cover with shrink wrap and a “Rich Girl” hype sticker and the custom lyric insert.
As these records were not made for general release, only a handful of copies were pressed and some colors seem to be rarer than others. We’ve seen a couple of green ones for sale over the years and we’ve previously seen one each of the yellow, red, and blue.
The white copy included in this set is the only white vinyl copy we’ve ever seen.
The covers are all in the original shrink wrap and are all M-. The inserts are also M-.
The five colored vinyl discs are all M- and are likely unplayed.
An amazing set of ultra-rare colored vinyl and likely your only chance to acquire them as a set.
Background: Released in 1976, Bigger Than Both of Us was the fifth studio album by Daryl Hall and John Oates. The album reached #13 on the U.S. album charts, helped by the single “Rich Girl,” which was the first of the duo’s six #1 singles.
Bigger Than Both of Us continued the gold success of its predecessor, Daryl Hall and John Oates, by adding a cleaner, more pop-oriented gloss to the production, as well as fine songwriting that builds on the bright pulse of “Rich Girl.”
