    Recently I have purchased 2 reissue vinyl records (both cases jazz albums) and upon checking the listing on Discogs it seems the record issues is from many years back. Yet the record is a recent online purchase.

    for example
    Duke Ellington & John Coltrane – Duke Ellington & John Coltrane
    Label: Impulse! – IMP-166
    Vinyl, LP, Album, Stereo, Reissue, Limited Edition, 180 Gram, Gatefold
    Country: US
    Released: 1997

    Both Barcode and runout match the 1997 release

    Can this be ? Am I reading this incorrectly ?

    Heavy Metal Snow White Tattooed Millionaire Princess

    Could be from 1997, could be continuously in print since 1997

    Thanks Mental block I guess. So still being printed as the 1997 release. Seemed strange considering there is 2014 US IMP166. So maybe just a pre 2014 printing leftover.

    The 2014 edition is a ltd edition pressing of 1000 from Newbury Comics. Gatefold Sleeve. Its also pressed on Gold Translucent vinyl.

    Theres a another repress with same cat# and bar code. But unknown year.....could be yours. Link

    Also there are 2 pressings in 97. One a ltd 180gr version

    Thats four in total.....also you could have a press that isnt catalogued yet!
