I found this one a while ago. Its the original Rave -On press with matching matrix numbers and everything, but as you can see the cover is black/white.

I can't find any info about it. Its not listed on Discogs and I never saw one for sale online.

Any kind of information would be highly appreciated.

I am not 100% sure but I know the first press of the Mercyful Fate ep on Rave On had a white border so what you have is probably a first press. Again that is a guess.

My first thought was a Mercyful Fate as well, for the same reason.
The only thing is, that Mercyful Fate version is well known and it has been traded/sold many times, while this one I never heard anything about it and never saw another copy like this.

It would be really interesting to find something out.

great find. Im not sure its a first press edition but cool none the less. Maybe it was a fluke misprint from the plant?

Weird, it seems this doesn't exist haha! It looks like a misprint. But why would the back have red ink?

I got an answer from a very reliable source. This is both, misprint AND the very first pressing.

They tried to print the red/black cover, but something went wrong and it turned out white/black. Later they tried again and it turned out orange! (Must have been one hell of a printer.) And after the third try, they finally succeed and printed the red/black cover they wished for.

So yeah, there is not only this one, but also the orange version that only a few people knew of. Both versions were printed in a very small quantity and were never meant to be sold. How the man that I bought the record from got his hands on one is a mystery to me. I bought about 50 records from him, most of them were just regular 80's hard rock and heavy metal... and this one!

Wasn't the orange version more reddish? Mine is pink. I got both versions, sold or traded (that was something like 10 years ago or more) this red one and kept the pink one.
Or maybe the pink colour is simply a discoloured red one.

Never heard of this black and white cover, though. It doesn't look great IMO with the coloured back.

Cool, I didn't know about these special misprints...

Though I am the happy owner of the Metamorphose misprint with that jazz funk avantgarde shit on side B. Pretty fun stuff too, guess they weren't very lucky with vinyl pressing.
