THE RECORD OF THE WEEK:
WE'RE ALMOST THERE
(CASI LO LOGRAMOS)
ECUADOR 7'' SINGLE
Today's record of the week comes straightly from Ecuador, and it's a rare press of "We're almost there", with translated title "Casi lo logramos" and with unique light blue Motown labels.
Also, the best part of this record is the matching sleeve - released by Fediscos, an Ecuador record company. As you can see from the label, Fediscos is named on the left side, and that means that this copy came exactly from the warehouse with that clear-transparent company sleeve.
It is very hard to find south american records with a matching sleeve. When you have the chance, I suggest you to check if the sleeve reports a company name that is visible also on the labels.
Also, I want to give you an alert:don't be fooled by picture sleeves (there are a lot of records with a never-seen-before picture sleeve on Ebay):almost ALL the southamerican releases, especially from the 70's (Jackson 5, Motown and so on...) came with a COMPANY sleeve. The picture sleeves you see on these auctions are FAKE.
