Unnumbered copies

To add to the confusion, there also seem to be unnumbered outer sleeves. As this picture shows...

Number 0000 found!!!

Believe it or not: picture disc nr. 0000 has been traced. You would have thought that the series of picture discs would start with nr. 0001, but nr. 0000 was offered for sale at eBay in july 2007. Of course I placed a bid as well, but American Greg Clark was the winner in the end. Congratulations Greg, you own a nice piece of Kayak history!!!
(This picture proves the existence of nr. 0000)
For those of you who are interested: the price was $ 142.50

Letter from Janus Records

This is the letter that came with some picture discs, apparently. I don't think that the entire pressing of 3000 was given away as a prize, but at least some copies were given to 'winners'.
