OK, i also do now think those might be one and the same version, so here's another take on formulating this issue:

Are there many copies with the "out-of-center-printed-label" shown in GZ out there, or did Mr. Wonneberg "accidently" picture a not-so-common version?

In short, any zappateers out there which own a copy that looks exactly like the one shown in GZ?

Detritus is right, the "rim text" & UA logo are pre-printed on the labels, therefore the other printing may appear to be different, though it's really not. One of my (3) US copies is a real "bad" example:

ok..

I have three US copies of 200 Motels. two of them have the same label you talk about, where the text appear different, but is actually not. I did some measuring (with a chicken) and "FRANK ZAPPA", "200 MOTELS" and "Produced by Frank Zappa" have the same distance on both. But they are not from the same factory! One was made by Columbia Records, Terre Haute, Indiana and the other from a unknown factory (I hope to find out which soon). The one from Terre Haute has a darker Beige label and it is also much lighter than the other. The one from Terre Haute weights approximately 110g and the other is approximately 140g

My third copy has a totaly different label layout. the sides on it are as follows: 1,2,3,4 and not 1,4,2,3 like the others.

It's too dark to make photos now, but I will tomorrow Smile
