There was no physical US pressing in 91.
The 91 Caroline LPs were made in Germany because it was the cheapest way to go.
In 91 it took HUT a couple of months (till August i think) to press the LP in the UK.
All Caroline LPs from 91 are manufactured in Germany.
All HUT LPs from 91 are manufactured in the UK.
True US Caroline LP pressings are all from 94 and remastered.
The LPs sold in the US from 91 with the Caroline barcode sticker are technically NOT a German import. These were made in Germany, but sold through the US label Caroline. These LPs were just made in Germany. These LPs were not released by Caroline Germany to be exact.
As far as I know all sleeves are the same for the original pressings and the remastered ones; the re-issue as a gatefold sleeve.
Gish on vinyl:
91 Caroline Records US (manufactured in Germany)
91 HUT Records UK (manufactured in the UK)
91 Caroline Records/EMI KR (manufactured under Caroline US license in Korea)
94 Virgin Records US (remastered) (manufactured in the US)
94 HUT Records UK (remastered) (manufactured in the UK)
