Killer Era

Read my review of this album here.

Killer CD Album (Warner Bros 7599-27255-2)

 

This is a very basic CD in a jewel case.  The insert has 7 pages containing track titles, credits and a 1972 calendar (not 1973 as provided in my vinyl copy).  There is a useful 'Notes' page at the back featuring a short history of the band.

 

Estimated Value: £10

Killer 'Mini LP' SHM CD Album (Unknown Year / Manufacturer)

As with all of the Japanese SHM CD's, this version faithfully recreates the original vinyl release (this includes the detachable 1972 calendar).  Killer was a fairly basic release on the first place so this is obviously reflected here.

 

Estimated Value: £40

Killer '24KT + Gold' CD Album (2009, Audio Fidelity AFZ 048)

Following on from Audio Fidelity's release of Love It To Death comes this version of Killer on '24KT+ Gold' CD format. 

 

As before you get a beautiful gold CD, supposedly superior sound quality, plus a rather dissapointing fold-out booklet featuring stock images, the 1972 calendar, plus the disc labels of the original vinyl release.

 

As with Love It To Death, this release is limited to 5,000 individually numbered copies, of which this is 1,394.

 

Estimated Value: £75

Killer Vinyl Album (1972, Warner Brothers K 56005)

 

The version of the LP was pressed a year after the albums official release in 1971.  It's a fairly basic gatefold offering but notably includes a detachable fold out calendar (1973 in this instance but other years were produced).

 

Estimated Value: £50

Killer Vinyl Album (2012, Friday Music 81227 97167)

The 180g re-issues continue with the release of Killer by Friday Music.  This come in gatefold form and does not feature the calendar which came with the original release (obviously it would have been out-of-date but would still have been welcomed).

 

Estimated Value: £25
