Description

Offered for sale is a pair of  still sealed U.S. copies of Wild Thing by the Troggs, one in stereo and one in mono, on two different labels with two different covers!

One is the stereo pressing on the Fontana label with the brown cover.  The other is the very rare pressing on the Atco label in mono with the blue cover that was withdrawn shortly after release.  Both albums have the same track listing.

About this copy #1: This copy of Wild Thing is an original 1966 U.S. issue on the Fontana label.

As the album is sealed, the disc is presumably new and unplayed.

The wrap is fully intact except for a 3″ tear along the spine at the bottom left hand corner.

A nice copy of a terrific LP that is usually found in rough condition.

About  copy #2: This copy of Wild Thing is the original 1966 U.S. issue on the Atco label.

As the album is sealed, the disc is presumably new and unplayed.

The wrap is fully intact except for a 1″ (2 cm) break in the center of the mouth of the cover.

A nice copy of a very rare LP and the only copy of the Atco pressing that we’ve ever seen.

Background: Released in 1966, Wild Thing was the first LP by the Troggs, containing the U.S. #1 hit of the same name.

The album was titled From Nowhere in the UK, where it had a different track listing and a cover that was similar to the U.S. Fontana release.

Due to a contractual dispute, Wild Thing was simultaneously released on two different labels in the U.S., with two different covers.

Both Fontana Records and Atco Records claimed to have contractual rights to release the album in the United States, but the rights were determined to belong to Fontana and the Atco version was quickly deleted and is now quite rare.
