WINGS In Concert In Copenhagen / GREAT DANE :TMOQ 8205-6 / the copenhagen concert :TKRWM 2807

I believe this release on the ANTI-GRAVITY label (matrix # 1401) came first (and it was also the most well executed presentation-wise – it had a gatefold sleeve):

and came on multi-colored vinyl:

Different issue with TMOQ sign on cover but still on mcv:

With every copy/reissue, the album lost a bit in terms of appearance (and perhaps also in sound quality).

Dub also released his own ‘true TMoQ’ version called Great Dane with original pig labels:

This is one of William Stout’s personal favorite out of the 43 bootleg cover designs he did. The others are The Rolling Stones, “Winter Tour 1973 (All Meat Music),” The Rolling Stones, “Bright Lights, Big City,” The Rolling Stones, “Welcome to New York,” The Who, “Who’s Zoo,” The Yardbirds – “More Golden Eggs and ” The Who, “Tales From The Who”.

“One pretender to the bootlegger’s throne was a new incarnation of Trade Mark of Quality. In 1976 some six albums, two of them doubles, were released in The TMQ Deluxe 1976 Series. If the quality of these releases – uniformly mediocre – belied the illustrious name, these new TMQs were indeed the genuine article. Dub had decided to dip his fingers into the mire again and, for the two final releases, even brought William Stout out of retirement to produce a lovely Kellogg’s Corn Flakes pastiche for a Jeff beck album. Beckfast (an idea later reused on Michigan Nuggets), as well as a graphic based around the HMV dog for Paul McCartney’s Great Dane. But Dub’s day was done and these releases marked a curious epilogue to his rock bootleg activities, not the flowering of a ‘new’ Frankenstein TMQ. Dub no longer had the access to source material that had given TMQ its edge. TMQ3 was a half-hearted endeavour at the best, and the cowboys (and cowgirls) had already moved in.” [Bootleg!, Heylin, pp, 112-13]
