Would they count as separate entries on Discogs?
I'm also curious about numbers. For years these were rumoured to have been limited to around 250 copies. Hence the value. On the Simply Machine site they mention only ever having two master tapes which they burnt out doing duplications.
Realistically, how many copies could you make from two masters? 1500 seems high.
Bare in mind my estimate was 500 to 1500 and I am pretty sure they created their own masters at some later point (which were by then 3rd generation as the tapes they got themselves originally were 1st gen copies in the first place).
No they wouldn't be separate items on Discogs, they are variations on the same release. The rules are pretty clear that it counts as one release and various notes and photos get added to that release. That's my take in this case anyway.
