Am I missing any? Let me know.
BD 1011: Not an easy release to describe:
Early version, insert exists in different colors.
From bobsboots: “In 1978 CBM re-released the LP with a different package (gwa70B). It had a white cover; no Label info; an insert with a blue surrealistic drawing, and blank red and dark blue labels. An earlier version… possibly 1977.. has full printed green labels. ”
So, here, we have the “surrealistic drawing” insert and the full printed green labels in yet another “hybrid” version. I wonder if the given years are correct. Did CBM produce albums as late as 1978?
I found the following quote online, so the blue wax version is confirmed – must be very rare though: “I used to have a blue vinyl, white sleeve bootleg record with handwritten titles. The boot was known as “Seventy Dollar Robbery”… “. A seller in Japan describes the vinyl as “disc is smoky…”.

Sent him off to prison
For a seventy dollar robbery
Closed the door behind him
And they threw away the key
Lord, Lord, they cut George Jackson down
Lord, Lord, they laid him in the ground
[Bob Dylan “George Jackson”]
From Wikipedia: “
“George Jackson” is a song by Bob Dylan, written in 1971, in tribute to the Black Panther leader, George Jackson, who had been recently shot and killed by guards at San Quentin Prison on August 21, 1971, an event that indirectly provoked the Attica Prison riot.
Dylan recorded the song at Columbia Studio B, on November 4, 1971and it was quickly released as a 45 rpm single, Columbia 4-45516, on November 12, 1971. The single consisted of a “Big Band version” of the song on Side A and an “Acoustic version” on Side B.”
