I heard that Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum was originally released in 2005, not 2006. How can I tell if my copy is a first printing or not?

For the first printing, due to a mistake at the printer’s, the Zubin-page in the lyric sheets was colored purple instead of blue. Also, the strip on the side of the CD case had a typographical error, and reads “Marvin’s Marvelous Mechancial Museum” as opposed to “Mechanical”. Both of these errors were fixed for the 2006 re-release.

If your CD case or lyric sheets are a bit out of whack, you’ve got yourself a first printing! More information:  CLICK HERE

Of course, if you have the 2008 re-re-issue of MMMM, then you’ve got a completely updated cover and booklet.  You can tell the differences here: http://www.hiddeninthesand.com/wiki/index.php?title=Marvin%27s_Marvelous_Mechanical_Museum_(Album)
