Devil Doll Eliogabalus Gimmx Promo LP
Here is an VERY interesting history about how many copies exactly circulate of the ELIOGABALUS GIMMIX LP. As many of you maybe
have seen: The DEVIL DOLL discography opperates with 2 different
stories when it comes to the exact number of copies existing of this
LP. Even in the scrapbook it is 2 stories. First it says 50 copies
in the "chronology" section. Then it says 25 copies in
the "different releases" section. I have allways wondered: What is
correct here?? Well both are(!!) And here is the answer, FC has cleared it up:
ELIOGABALUS GIMMIX LP: Mr. Doctor himself numbered the ELIOGABALUS
gimmix LP. The original intention was that 500 copies would have the
gimmix cover, but when they came out from the printing company they
were nearly all defective, so it was decided that the best 50 would
be kept and the others destroyed. They were sent to Mr. Doctor and
he numbered them from 1 to 50. But on nearly half of them he put on
the cover a sticker with written UN-ACCEPTABLE! as there were some
factory faults in one or more of the stalls in the gimmix cover.
These covers were eventually never distributed and only the ones
considered perfect or near-perfect circulated: these should not
exceed the number of 25.
Cool! And If you are confused: This means that only 25 copies or
LESS are existing/circulating.Like this copy below is 10 of 50. This means that
for example nr 1 exist, nr 2 don't. Or nr 36 exist, nr 45 don't, and
so on, and so on, and so on...........
