Secondary copies -- which copy of the stamper was being used. Exactly why they made copies at the late stages in the process is unknown. Sometimes, companies actually used a stamper as a source for a mother -- which is the REVERSE of the usual process.

The original XYZ pressing of "Silhouettes" has the S-100 and S-101 matrix numbers. These were probably intended for all XYZ singles at the time. Single X-104 has the matrixing system changed to X-104-G and X-104-H, and single X-105 has X-105 in the matrix, followed by the first letter of the title s...

There was more than one pressing, but HamYardie is correct in indicating that the first pressing came out in Summer, 1975 -- some sources say August. It was one of NME's top LP's of the year. The material had already been released by RCA, but not all in one place (promoting his appearance on Sun). S...

There are "incomplete matrix" pressings of several of the singles.

These were contract pressings, but since they were not marked with ANY factory indicator, it is simply not possible without seeing paperwork to know who pressed them.

That's interesting. I have a copy of "Get Back" (Apple 2490) with a "K" in the matrix on both sides.

My copies of "Something" that are contracts all have identifying marks indicating that they're RCA pressings.

There are contract pressings of almost every single from "I Want to Hold Your Hand" through "Long and Winding Road." The Beatles sold records so quickly that Capitol often used one (or two) of Decca's factories and/or one (or two) of RCA Victor's factories to press additional copies of Beatles recor...
