So after all this Passage talk I decided to get out my vinyl versions, regular, acetate, test pressings,British and Japanese vinyl, promos,etc. The acetate was sent out on July 26th 1977, 2nd ref. in pen on the bottom. Only difference I can hear is the longer intro to Calling Occupants. Test pressing says ok 9/8. The typed sheet on the cover reads corr. 8/29/77 Side 2, Band 4 Change In Timin The g was left off. Acetate titles abbreviated and typed label. It says Carpenters at the top. No album title listed. The white cover the same. No mention of Passage. Test pressing is white A&M label blank, gives album title at bottom of the page on the typed page attached to the blank cover. The promo versions are the same as commercial release but says promotion copy not for sale in the musical notes area of the lp label. I have 1 in a plain white record jacket and one with the standard cover with a white promotional copy not for sale sticker at the bottom. A British import copy and the Japanese version has the large obi ribbon around it. Otherwise the same as American issues. I kind of forgot about all this until today. Glad you all got me excited about Carpenters again. Thank you.
