What is a Condor?
Is that an "Ovation" Condor guitar
Rather than an instrument, could it be an 'influence'?
ie an oblique reference to girls at the 'Condor' on Sunset Strip?
Just a thought.

I have updated Version data on UK 1st issue, from my copy.
It should be noted that a 2nd UK edition exists of RSLP 2030, same run-outs, in a Red sleeve - with red panel on reverse.
The current '2nd issue' is in fact the 3rd issue re Kinney distribution; K 44020

Sorry I'm late getting back on the "Olive" question. Yes, agree - it kinda oscillates between B2B219 & B2B24C (Both described as 'Moderate Olive'). I'd always disliked the often generalized Golden Green - I think it was originally intended as 'Gold AND Green'! Gold it isn't - but the text is Green. Thanks chaps

No worries mate. I'm always happy to learn something ;-) Yes, "Golden Green" gave a wrong impression of shiny and metallic as gold.

Another thought. Perhaps add in the 2nd UK red, that the inset back panel is also red (In the same manner that the olive front has an olive back panel)? Might save confusion.
As to a date for the red, I can only guess it happened when olive stock ran out!
