Description

Offered for sale is a still sealed low-numbered limited edition U.S. picture disc pressing of Magazine by Heart.  This copy is #602 of 100,000 copies!

Note: While the cover indicates that this is 602/100,000, the record company reportedly pressed 130,000 copies of the album, and we’ve seen copies with numbers above 100,000.

About this copy: This copy of Magazine is a 1978 U.S. pressing on the Mushroom label of an album that was originally released in 1977.

As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.

In the upper right hand corner of the back cover is a number indicating that this copy is 602/100,000.

The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears, or holes.

A beautiful copy of a classic LP and one of the lowest numbered copies we’ve ever seen.

Background: Released in 1978, the picture disc edition of Heart’s Magazine was the first picture disc LP to get widespread national distribution as a commercial release.  Prior to this release, nearly all picture disc LPs had been issued only as promotional items.

The numbered series was supposed to be limited to 100,000 copies, but due to the popularity of the LP, the record company reportedly pressed 130,000 copies, along with an additional 30,000 copies in Canada, which were numbered separately.

Magazine was the second album by Heart.  The album was released in 1977 but was immediately withdrawn due to a lawsuit between the band and the record company, which had released the album in incomplete form without the band’s permission.

The album was reissued the following year with a different mix and a couple of rerecorded songs.  The album reached #17 on the U.S. charts.

Allmusic.com gave Magazine this review:

Problems with the Mushroom label delayed the release of Magazine, which eventually went platinum and peaked at number 17 on the album charts. Only the hard-rocking “Heartless” made it into the Top 40, and the album didn’t really live up to Heart’s last few efforts.
