Note the two color insert.
An almost two color variation, probably as a result of black PVC residue.

rollingstones.net writes “I checked the Side 1 source to see if it matched “The Rock & Roll Circus” on Trade Mark of Quality (TMoQ), Matrix: 1383 A/B. It doesn’t, the sound quality is much better than the TMoQ disc. The Roundhouse source is copied from the last track on Side 1 and Side 2 of the Trade Mark of Quality disc: “London Roundhouse” Matrix: 1812 A/B.”
All that could have been compared is the “Yer Blues” jam basically, as none of the other tracks matched. It would also be nice to refer to the second album as being on the correct label, Mushroom. I have never seen this on the classic TMOQ label. While it is very nice to see CBM come out on top and given this amount of attention at all, this comparison falls a bit short in the end.
