GEORGE HARRISON - Somewhere in England (Dark Horse DHK 3492 / 075992349215) USA unofficial promo LP
vinyl: NM (mint-) unplayed | cover: NM (mint-) a beauty!
Unofficial (fake) pressing of George Harrison's intended version of his album "Somewhere In England" which was to have been issued Oct 29 1980, but was delayed when Warner Bros rejected it, and George went back to record new tracks to include on the actual release which came out May 1981.
Artwork is what George had initially submitted, with a barcode included, and real production slicks were produced in 1980. The labels are a slight replica of the Dark Horse label, but the horse itself is not in color, all in black and over all the label lacks sharpness and clarity of legit labels.
The cover has the original copyright of 1980 (but is not stated on labels), these fakes started appearing by late 1982.
It's possible that a reel-to-reel (7 1/2 IPS quarter track) supplied to Warner Bros for in-house advance-release promo use was used for this.
There was never any official vinyl pressings made for this original version in the US (other than perhaps test pressings) and no discographies list it as being made. Some of these pressings may state "Promotional Copy....(like this one!)" but this is indeed an unofficial/fake pressing.
