I've read that the red palm tree label id pressed in Miami, but what about the Joe Gibbs label from the states that is the split blue/red label with the yellow line down the middle. Anyone know where they were pressed, they usually seem to be pretty good.

There is a comp called Culture and the Deejays at Joe Gibbs which has the two I Roy contributions and I wondered if they even existed as actual 12" but I have seen some and read your evidence - not often seen though. I was wondering how many of the tracks on that comp actually came as 12" originally. I put happy faces next to the ones I have and sad faces next to the ones I'll probably never own - but I have only seen the others as 7". Anyone else know differently?
