Sound Quality: same as the original records

THE ORIGINAL RELEASE

The original release (photo below the title) has a de-luxe laminated jacket, with notes and track listing on back, and a fake "Made in Spain" indication. Two versions exist: one in black vinyl with bluish labels with "Good Times Records", and one in orange vinyl with the same labels in cream or brown color.

INTEREST. A useless compilation of two previous, not rare, records. **/*

THE COUNTERFEITED RELEASE

This useless record was soon counterfeited on matrix BCD 1 / BCD 2 / BCD 3 / BCD 4. The counterfeit has decreased sound quality and a noisy pressing. The jacket is identical. The first version had blank labels, usually white and orange. This is the most common version of BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, more common than the original release.

In 1981 and 1982 several more versions of the counterfeit were distributed, one of which in multicolored vinyl, part of the "Verzyl" records series, likely a reference to John Verzyl, collector and editor of comics. These records, also those in black vinyl, had usually labels with drawings of monsters; one copy with a strange label with "NO" indication was seen.

INTEREST. Only interesting for the labels; the version in multicolored vinyl was pressed in a very limited number of copies, no more than 50. The version with blank labels is absolutely worthless (*), the others are valuable for collectors interested in records with peculiar labels. ** (multicolored vinyl: ****).
