Beatles MMT b+w

Wizardo tried to offer more in 1975 by squeezing all 52 minutes onto one disc. Although “I Am The walrus” is listed at the start of side B it did not make it. Sides C & D present a hodgepodge of tracks taken from earlier Contraband titles plus two Pete Best 45s:

Side C: Mean Mr. Mustard/ All Together On The Wireless Machine/ Step Inside Love/ Nice Time (Kenny Everett, listed as “Bye Bye Bye”)/ Peace Of Mind/ Miss Ann-Kansas City-Lawdy Miss Clawdy/ What’s The New Mary Jane

Side D: The Way I Feel About You/ If You Can’t Get Her/ Boys/ Kansas City-Hey Hey Hey Hey! (last 4 songs: Pete Best)/ People Say/ I’m Walking (“John & Paul” 45)/ I’ll Be On My Way Soldier Of Love/ George phone interview w/Ed Rudy/ Tony Barrow interview w/Jerry G. Bishop

Hot Wacks quality rating: “Gm” for sides A, B & D and “poor mono” for side C.
