This cassette was released alongside the 1976 vinyl stereo release of Adge Cutler's first album (1967). The cassette is identical to the vinyl record - but without the original sleeve notes - and with the catalogue number
In August 1973 a standard cassette design/layout was established for EMI: The insert now included printer's date codes, OC number and references to Dolby. Labels were plain white paper with black printed details. Black cassette shells were supposed to be used - although the previous style in grey can be found quite easily. The cassette cases had clear fronts and black bodies with a heavy mottled effect on the back face.
This style of cassette case insert was introduced by EMI in early 1973. It was printed by the Data Packaging Corporation (DP) (who also produced the vinyl album sleeve) in August 1976 as indicated by the line 7608 DP.
Notice the spelling error in the publishing credits for side 1 - 'The Cassent Kill Cooch' instead of 'Thee...'.
No tapes have yet been found with this error corrected.
This series of cassettes was for albums that were originally released on the Columbia label. The original album artwork was preserved below a gold band at the top with album details in black.
Beneath the catalogue number TC-SCX 6126 appears another code number OC 244 o 06121. Between 1969 and 1982 EMI had an international coding system which they hoped would get adopted industry wide, and they used it worldwide for their own releases. In fact, the numbers used formed the basis of the 7-digit numbers adopted in 1983 and inserted into EAN/UPC barcode-based cataloguing, used to this day.
