    That's correct. At the time I took these, the Satellite had been stripped down because Richard sold the car, then decided he wanted it back! Some modifications had been made to the car during that time, so Richard stripped it and rebuilt it.

    I have the rebuilt pics that Richard's mechanic Daniel sent me someplace but not sure where I put them. Note Mom and Pop Carpenter's initials on the license plate :wink:

    ^^I have a CD that is very similar to that cover but mine is red colored with the same picture but mine is titled "their greatest hits"
     
  8. There are multiple iterations of that CD. It originally was titled ONLY YESTERDAY and was later reissued with THEIR GREATEST HITS, white cover in the UK, red cover in Germany. I suspect there are others as well.

    South Africa had a 2 volume collection. Vol. 1, Only Yesterday (white cover) and Vol. 2, Yesterday Once More (blue cover)

    [​IMG]
    Volume 1 had the same track list but volume 2 had tacks such as I Nee To Be In Love, A Song For You, I'll Never Fall In Love Again, All You Get From Love Is A Love Song and Ave Maria.

    I’ve never seen or heard of these companion South Africa versions of this release. Does anyone have the tracklist of both? If volume 1 has the same tracks as the standard UK release, why would they repeat All You Get From Love Is A Love Song on volume 2?

    Ignore me, I found the answer. The South African version of Only Yesterday is shorter. CD2 features some lovely album tracks. I love the juxtaposition between tracks 4 and 5 on the second collection. I Just Fall In Love Again followed by I'll Never Fall In Love Again :laugh:
