CBM – The 3000 – 5000 Releases Master List

This is the second of three Contraband master lists. Part three will include all releases with a non-10XX and non-3XXX – 50XX number.

Relevant concert performance dates where they can help determine the release date are given in brackets behind some of the titles. Approximate year of release appears without brackets.  I did not separate these by sub label. 

What we can see is that CBM was active into the second half of 1976 but they were at their peak from 1972 – 75. Double LPs were and are rare on CBM.    If I am missing any releases falling into this number range, do let me know. I will present and review every single one of these titles in the coming days and weeks. Dates indicate original recording date – for concert recordings) and/or approximate release year + month.

  1. I do admit I slacked a bit when it came to the Beatles Cinelogue series as I find it rather boring, so there are clearly several missing. I hope the cover art can rekindle my interest.

  2. Here’s some more from my research – not all verified:

    3030 – 20 Never Published Songs (Beatles)
    3031 – Live On Blueberry Hill (Led Zeppelin)
    3245 (?) – Young Man’s Fancy Live On Sugar Mountain (Neil Young)
    3403 – $70 Robbery (Bob Dylan)
    3512 – $70 Robbery (Bob Dylan)
    3540 – Radiocord (Elton John)
    3570 – October 1972 (Moody Blues)
    3609 – The Beatles
    3711 – Telecasts (John Lennon)
    3796 – Live May 1973 (Jethro Tull)
    3923 – Supertracks 2 (Beatles)
    3665/3949 – One/One (John Lennon)
    4030 – Nordestar (Pink Floyd)
    4163 – Live At Pompeii (Pink Floyd)
    4240 – Crimson Rose Of Texas (King Crimson) (King Kong)
    4449 – Super Live Concert Series 1 (Beatles) (Shalom – side B)
    4450 – Falkoner Center, Copenhagen (Wings)
    4779/4750 – Stars Of ’63 (Beatles)

    • So, almost four years later, here is the answer regarding “4450 – Falkoner Center, Copenhagen (Wings)”
      This does exist – I just added it to the list – but it is a Delaney & Bonnie concert from 1969, advertised in a misleading way by having “HARRISON” & “CLAPTON” in large letters on the slip sheet. The title is simply FALKONER.

  3. Thank you for sharing your research, John.
    3030 – Beatles 20 Never Published Songs [no image found]

    3031 – Live On Blueberry Hill (Led Zeppelin) I have as: 30 / 31 – Live On Blueberry Hill (Led Zeppelin)
    3540 – Radiocord (Elton John) I have as: 35-400 – Radiocord (Elton John)

    4450 – Falkoner Center, Copenhagen (Wings) – I could not find any trace of this release online.
