 There is a second, more modern looking Exclusive design which I need to post, both are in Kurt's label book.

The link I provided shows three sets of issues (General/Exclusive, Gala, Sound)Ty (78discography) lists 3 Commodore issues.If anyone has label scans for the GENERAL and COMMODORE issues, I'd like to see them. (a couple will do).Did the SOUND releases come in an album? Anyone have a scan?Thanks, Thomas.-----Original Message-----From: 78-l-bounces at klickitat.78online.com[mailto:78-l-bounces at klickitat.78online.com]On Behalf Of David LennickSent: Monday, August 08, 2011 4:55 PMTo: 78-L Mail ListSubject: Re: [78-L] Spivey... no not THAT SpiveyEXCLUSIVE..that's the one. And a credit to General Records, and I still think I've seen pressings with Commodore labels.The Gala set I've only encountered once, in an archive. Taped it.
