There were several versions of this album, taken from a radio broadcast on 14 September 1978 (shortly before KBFH taped the band and headliner Cheap Trick at the Palladium in NYC, as released on the Audifön label/Vicky Vinyl boots THE CARS 78 and 78 CALIFORNIA MAN)

Interesting text added by an eBay seller in May of 2013: “The Cars doing what they do best on stage at the El Mocambo in Toronto on Sept. 14, 1978. Stereo pro recording. If I recollect, some of these were on multi-colored vinyl, but I don’t know if this is one [ I doubt any of these exist on mcv. ]. This is a sealed, never-opened, brand spanking new copy from the Beggar’s Banquet collection, Anaheim’s long-gone “Underground” record store, boxed away for decades.”

“Jiving Sister Fanny” was recorded on July 2nd, 1969 at Olympic Studio, the day before Brian Jones died.  Two versions with different lyrics were recorded that day.  This is the rarer of the two, having appeared on some pressings of Metamorphosis while the second take appears on most pressings of the album and on the London Years.  

“I’m Going Down” was initially worked on between April 17th to July 1969 at Olympic Studio and later right before the US tour from October and November, 1969 in Los Angeles.  This take, which was also used for Metamorphosis in 1975, dates from July 14th and July 15th, 1970 at Olympic.  This track differs from the commercial version by having a false start.  This track features Bobby Keys on sax, Rocky Dijon on percussion, Stephen Stills on guitar, and Bill Plummer on upright bass.  

“Hamburger To Go” (aka “Give Me A Hamburger To Go” and “Stuck Out Alone”) dates from sessions at Olympic from March and April, 1968 and remains unreleased.  ”Downtown Susie” is a Bill Wyman tune recorded on April 23rd, 1969 at Olympic Studio and is the same as the version on Metamorphosis except is shorter at the fade by five seconds.  

“Blood Red Wine”  was recorded May, 1968 at Olympic Studio.  Jagger sings the vocals, Nicky Hopkins plays piano, and no other information is available.  It has never been released which is a shame because it is the most intriguing song in this collection.  “Travelin’ Man” is another unreleased song recorded at Olympic in October, 1970.

The first version of “Family” dates from May, 1968 in Olympic and it the arrangement with the electric guitar.  The acoustic guitar arrangement which would appear on Metamorphosis would be recorded the following month.  “Still A Fool” was recorded at the same sessions and is a ten minute jam on the Muddy Waters tune.  Jagger tries his best to sing like the blues singer too.

Six out of the last seven tracks are instrumentals.  “Leather Jacket,” recorded on June 22nd, 1970 at Olympic Studio in London, is a lighthearted and infectious pop instrumental whose sunniness is outside the pale of the Stones.  “Dancing In the Light,” dating from the spring of 1970, is another upbeat instrumental but with some recognizable Stones raunch.  “Potted Shrimp” and “Aladdin Story” come from the same time period as “Leather Jacket” but recorded at Stargroves.  “And I Was A  Country Boy” comes from the Feb.18-Mar.31 1969 sessions.

“Who Am I?” (aka “See I Love You”) is a true mystery.  It is listed on this release as being from Olympic Studio in March to May 1970.  Others sources say late 1969 and even others from Jamaica 1972 and still others claim it comes from 1963 because of its simplicity.  The best sources say it was recorded on July 14th – 15th, 1970.

The final Trident jam is another mystery.  There is no name associated with it and was never used by the band.  [...] Although there are no hidden gems on this (there is a reason why many of them still reside in the vaults) but this is an interesting collection. ” [collectorsmusic.com]

According to Going Through The Motions, side one is from February 13, 1979, Long Beach Arena, Long Beach, CA. Side two is a bunch of pirated B-sides and give-aways (before Taking Liberties this was worth something. “Neat Neat Neat” was the only one not to appear on that album).

A concert review for the 14 February show appeared in the 5 April ’79 issue of Rolling Stone – # 288.

Some dealers have decided that this is one of the world’s most valuable bootleg – see Mamma/GMV Records on musicstack/gemm – asking 5K Euros for it and claiming only 5 copies made it out [which I doubt]. Reality check: In its newest eBay auction, a copy sold forjust $57 in January of 2014.

Here is an image of the HH version. If anyone has an image of the K&S version, please leave a comment.

Pressed on red PVC from “original plates” which I assume to be Hoffman Avenue Records / Idle Mind plates.

More information can be found here but it leaves me slightly confused as it says “2 LP” in the description: http://www.brucespringsteen.it/DB/detrec.aspx?code=LPKOTH1

Obviously this was derived from the Hoffman Avenue Records title# 147 and either the first or second Springsteen bootleg ever, released in 1975: JERSEY DEVIL – but this is not a double album.

Beatles Sp B S

“Have You heard The Word” (HW quality rating: satisfactory) by the Fut had first appeared on the Contraband LP with the same title, released in February of 1973 and preceding this TMOQ title by  about three to four months.   “Don’t Let Me Down” & “Those Were The Days” (satisfactory; 29 March 1969 Amsterdam Hilton “Bed In”, from a VPRO radio interview with Wim Noordhoek & Jan Donkers).  John’s short improvised version of “Cottonfields” (very good) was originally broadcast 5 June 1968 on the The Kenny Everett Show.  I suspect that “Twist and Shout” (good) are the Swedish radio recordings from Karlaplanstudio Stockholm, 24 Oct 1963 while the last track “Dizzy Miss Lizzy” (satisfactory) came the last ever Beatles BBC radio performance “The Beatles (Invite You To Take A Ticket To Ride)”, recorded 26 May 1965 and aired: 7 June 1965. 

Side 2 starts with “You Really Got A Hold On Me” (good), likely taken from the Swedish radio broadcast as well, especially if it is live, as no other live performance exists. “Roll Over Beethoven” (good) and the first two tracks on side2: “All My Loving” & “I Wanna Be Your Man” (both good) likely are identical with side 2 of CBM’s Sweden 1963 (wrongly attributed as having first appeared on CBM’s Mary Jane in the book Way Beyond Compare): From Us To You # 2, recorded on 28 February 1964 at BBC Piccadilly Studios in London and broadcast on 30 March ’64. “A Hard Day’s Night” (very good) and “Things We Said Today” (good) plus the interview are obviously from the summer of 1964 and are most likely really from the Beatles’ Top of the Pops appearances (as Hot Wacks states). A promo video of “Long Tall Sally” had been shown on 1 & 8 July ’64; “A Hard Days Night” played from the disc on 8, 15 and 22 of July & 5 August and “Things We Said Today” on 29 July ’64. The final track, “From Us To You” (poor) might also derive from the From Us To You # 2 radio program,  recorded on 28 February 1964 and broadcast on 30 March ’64.

[Disclaimer: There won't be much bootleg vinyl content in this post but I hope it will be OK.]

I must have passed through Narita airport over a dozen times in the last 14 years, so it was about time that I headed for immigration instead of the connection gates. After all, Japan is the only country I know with magazines dedicated to bootlegs. The now retired Gold Wax:

Gold Wax 19Gold Wax 19 pg

Some bootleg CD reviews are now to be found in the current beatleg magazine, which is not restricted to Beatles items, they just liked the name:

beatleg mag 9

I had armed myself with Google map printouts of record stores but in the end they didn’t really help me that much as the stores would in general not turn up where I was pretty certain they had to be.

For nostalgic reasons, my first stop was Tower Records in Shibuya – so nice to know that there is at least one of these left as I loved hanging out at Tower Records in the 90′s so much, usually the San Francisco locations.

From Shibuya, it is possible to walk towards Shinjuku past Yoyogi park (just follow the giant building). I did consider taking the subway but the size of the crowd repelled me (Tokyo is an interesting mix of empty and positively jam-packed places).

In Shinjuku, my map showed me dots in the lower part to the right of the station and above the station to the left (“bootleg land”). In the end, for the lower part, out of all the dots, the disc union stores are all I could locate. You really need to be somewhat eagle-eyed to identify each stores as you are surrounded by many small signs, most of which offer you no clue as to the nature of the business.

disc union

If you are thinking that it will be easy to find the correct street based on the adidas store you will be able to spot from the station entrance for sure – it’s not that easy. In fact, just getting the exit right is a bit of a challenge – this is “only” the planet’s busiest train station used by almost 4 million people a day. You can find your way around here – respect!

Back to disc union, store marked # 1 is their main store. They have a separate section spread over as many as 7 floors, with the Western Rock vinyl section being on floor # 7 of the main store. Each individual floor space is about the size of my living room (which isn’t that big). There is very little bootleg vinyl here.

Crossing over to the other side of Shinjuku station and continuing in a straight line North on the left side, there is a bootleg video place:

Tokyo 2014 021

Continuing further along and on the other side of the street, there is Shinjuku Records (since 1970), home to Hard Rock on CD these days. Coming back to the left side of the street and down one of the inviting side streets, you will find Blind Faith - a boot CD special store, which must either must be hard up for storage space or gets a lot of packages. Some new boot vinyl here as well and magazines.

Tokyo 2014 025

It was here that I asked where the warehouse was, which I had already walked by several times and just could not find. One thing I loved about Tokyo was how friendly and patient every single person was that I asked for directions (I tried to choose well, targeting those that I felt might speak at least some basic English).

Back on the main street and just up from here in a corner building is another boot CD specialist:

Tokyo 2014 024

Advertizing the Stones second night at Tokyo Dome DVD.

Tokyo 2014 023

Their sign on the other site of the door.

 

And finally, a little further up on the street and easy to miss was the store with the most used vinyl – and a seemingly never ending flow of sometimes rare early Japanese bootleg vinyl offered on eBay (where they sell under shakeitupbaby) and via their email list – these records are not displayed in the store though:

Tokyo 2014 022

They had the most space of all the stores I visited and I bought the most (non-bootleg) vinyl here. Prices were very reasonable and the records have rested in plastic sleeves from day 1, avoiding scuffs and had obviously been treated well by their previous owner(s). 

My biggest find was a beautiful copy of George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass Japan box AP 9016C (supposedly the second best sounding analog version out there) on red PVC for $29/ 21 Euros. UK versions were selling for up to 10 times as much in the next row; talk about the prophet not being appreciated in its own country. So, how could I say no at such a price that probably would not even cover shipping if sent? Curiously, when I opened it up later, one of the goodies inside was a cut-to-size CBM bootleg LP slip sheet from their Bangladesh Benefit release – obviously, a real hardcore collector parted ways with this one (and got next to nothing for it).

Overall, I had hoped for a bigger selection though. My goal is now to make it to one of the record fairs held organized several times a year by the Darumaya store in Ikebukuro.

One of the best things I did when preparing for this trip was to hire a guide from Tokyofreeguide.com . So, we are at the Imperial palace, which is most impressive and I see this building in the not too far distance with a golden ball on top and I’m thinking “hey, that reminds me of the Budokan but surely that’s not in this area.” when my guide quips “and that over there is the Budokan.”.

Tokyo 2014 002

Needless to say, we had to add another stop to our agenda right away. As we approach the building I never thought that it might be open – I mean how much luck can one have? But it was. A graduation ceremony for one of the universities had just ended and we could really walk up the steps and take a peek – the thought alone made me a bit weak in the knees, I have to admit.

Tokyo 2014 007Tokyo 2014 005Beatles Tokyo July 1

Didi_Zill-Deep_Purple-Budokan_Hall_Tokyo 1

I wonder how old that stage was and who has played on it. In hindsight, I wish I had been able to get closer to it but as the only foreigner there I didn’t want to stick out even more or embarrass my guide, who must have thought I was pretty strange. “Nobody ever wanted to go to the Budokan before” I can still hear her saying. … Some of us are just a little more music obsessed than others, I guess. All in all, I had a great time navigating this complex and fascinating culture.

Back copied William Stout’s die-cut generic cover design:

Rolling Stones London Roundhouse green

044:

Supertramp 1978 TourSupertramp 1978 Tour b

A couple of mistakes here:

Supertramp toured in 1977 and ’79 only, so this is likely from 1977 (they played Maple Leaf Gardens on 1st and 2nd of June that year). The final song is likely “Asylum” and not “Poor Boy”.  Rated “Exs” in Hot Wacks, described as “very good aud. recording” by a different rater.

If the location is correct, this would be a K&S exclusive release – somewhat of a rarity.

045:

Roxy Music Hammersmith 79 b

 

Correct venue listed on sleeve. Source: BBC broadcast from 18 May 1979, making it the latest and youngest concert recording to be released on K&S and helping us to pinpoint  the release date for this and the following titles as from summer of ’79 onwards. Another K&S original release.

Original set list:

01 Manifesto
02 Trash
03 Out Of The Blue
04 A Song For Europe
05 Still Falls The Rain
06 Mother Of Pearl
07 Ain’t That So
08 Angel Eyes
— Ladytron (missing)
09 In Every Dream Home A Heartache
10 Casanova
11 Love Is The Drug
12 Re-make/Re-model
13 Do The Strand
14 Editions Of You

 

While researching this title I found that the great Roxy Music site Roxyrama.com has now been taken offline – too bad, it was the best.
