One thing I remember (don't have the discs here to inspect) is that Masterpiece
reversed the matrix numbers. And a few of the Davis sides appear to be master
pressings. I don't know if the Phonycord has dubbed sides, but it's slightly
smaller than ten-inch (and the quality is excellent on it). Blue vinyl. I've
only seen one Belvox.
