It appears that this isn't the only misprint copy as I too have a misprint on vinyl. However, mine is the standard black vinyl. 1 side of the 2nd record contains the usual White Album content and the other is Love Songs.  It's a Capitol re-release from Canada. Years ago I spoke with the president at Capitol Records who said that he had heard of such a misprint but was unfamiliar with its value - though there are believed to be only a few others like it, maybe 5 or 6.  I would love to know its value as I've been hanging on to it for years.

We have located a 2nd copy of this misprint album here in Canada.  Original owner bought a white vinyl copy of the White Album in 1978.  But when he went to play it side 1 of the White Album on white vinyl actually plays side 1 of Love Songs instead.  So now we have 2 known copies of this super rare album.   My friend is now willing to sell it after owning it for 35 years.
