This does excist, since I have two copies of it and I'm sure it is legit, since it was pressed by MCA Records, Gloversville, New York.


Indeed it does exist, I have the DSK 2288 both with Discreet and Reprise labels.


I wonder if the one with reprise label is from a different pressing plant. Maybe the reason why it was issued with Reprise label instead og Discreet..

Both of my Discreet label versions has something that looks like []-G-[] in the matri,x and thats the MCA Records, Gloversville, New York pressing plant sign. Does your Reprise copy have this or something else Bengo?

My Discreet labeled pressing has the etched matrices: DSK-1-2288 MCA NY-2 / DSK-2-2288 MCA NY-1 plus what is probably that sign you refer to.

The Reprise issue has these etched matrices: DSK-1-2288-WW3#2 / DSK-2-2288-WW2

definitely seems to be different pressing plants, and it's also a mystery why it was renumbered.

I believe the WW indicates the Reprise was pressed by Capitol Records.

It looks like the Reprise issue is a Capitol Records, Winchester, Virginia pressing. Does the dead wax have something that looks like this: "--<"?

From what I've read, it's supposed to look like a Winchester rifle Laughing
It's definitely a Capitol Records, Winchester, Virginia pressing.

I guess Over-nite Sensation and Apostrophe (') was renumbered because they where re-issued right before Zappa In New York

OS - DSK 2288
A(') - DSK 2289
ZINY - 2D 2290
ST - DSK 2291

Sleep Dirt was DSK 2292 while Orchestral Favorites was DSK 2294, and reportedly DSK 2293 would have been the unreleased album about Robert F Kennedy's assasination (but Reprise ended up assigning this number to a Jimi Hendrix compilation).

BTW, perhaps this news already got around and I missed it, but this site has what it claims is the Kennedy album on sale for $100.

Also BTW, this page mentions many other Reprise albums by Sinatra, Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, etc, renumbered around the same time.

It's possible that Capitol Records, Winchester, Virginia made a mistake and used Reprise label instead of Discreet, since almost all the reissues are on Reprise..

It's still listed red as OS has not yet undergone the GZ-treatment, both labels are shown there. Additionally there also seems to be a White WB-Label issue of the DSK 2288 release.
