This is about something very special: Rare pressings from Taiwan from the 1960s. These plates were mainly produced for US soldiers stationed in Taiwan. Usually there were editions of only 500 copies, and if there was a reprint, it was different from the previous one again - even if it was from the same label.
These are therefore only true rarities. They often used coloured vinyl (especially orange and red are common) and often have a unique cover design that has nothing to do with the design of the originals. You can also imagine that the press quality is not the very best, gladly the recording was simply made from an (original) record, since the master tapes were of course not available.
The covers are usually the so-called 'Poly-coated Cardboards Sleeves' typical for South-East Asia. These are two printed thin cardboards covered with PVC, which is welded at the edges and on the back of the board.
So - as already mentioned at the beginning - all around special releases, which should make the heart of many (curiosity) collectors beat faster.
