3795 + 3436: jethro tull ‘RETROROC’

Jethro Tull retroroc 2

“This is an item rare enough that it is not listed in the Hot Wacks bible. It features a rare insert cover with a printed jacket credited to the same artist J. Fish. The labels are on Instant Analysis which means the vinyl quality is of a much higher quality than on subsequent CBM releases [I would love to substantiate the claim made here about the vinyl quality. The CBM releases came first, of course, this is the subsequent re-release]. The LPs contain  the same material as “Live May 1973” 3796 and “Ticketron” 3436. ” [eBay seller description for item shown above]

Jethro Tull Retroroc

Around 1975 and under the radar of Hot Wacks, Contraband reissued these Live May 1973 and ticketron as this rare double album on their King Kong reissue label but apparently using Instant Analysis paper labels as well.
