    From looking at the pictures on Discogs, the apostrophe in the word MC's on the label slopes a different way

    OG - https://www.discogs.com/Ultra-Magnet...release/199184
    Repress - https://www.discogs.com/Ultra-Magnet...elease/4994696

    Check the inner ring, it needs to overlap the writing and not coming to the bottom of the writing

    hey fellas - I've found another version of 'Funky' - looks like an 80s repress with a $4.44 sticker on the sleeve, its definitely old, possibly a Hub Servall press, but its sealed so I can't check it... anyone else got this pressing? see pics below:

    NEW sealed copy:

    I'll have to dig my copy out,I know it's an OG as I bought it from Groove Records.
    Which of their releases has Ultra Magentic MCs on the label?
