Wizardo’s 400 series was a short series of 7 to 8 releases containing a mix of straight copies of bootlegs released by other labels and pirated official tracks, that focused on Beatles and solo-Beatles recordings.
With the insert – and perhaps the music too – lifted straight from Contraband.
WRMB / KO- 400: The Beatles ‘Complete Christmas Collection’
WRMB / KO-401: The Beatles ‘Renaissance Minstrels volume 1’ – The Beatles on ed Sullivan, as originally released by TMoQ
WRMB / KO-402: The Beatles ‘Renaissance Minstrels volume 2’ – – image needed, leave a comment if you can supply this.
WRMB / KO-403: unknown
WRMB / KO-404: A collection of Apple single B-sides 1970 – 1975
with ‘Trade Mark of Quantity’ logo and “von Grossenshush/Teufel Folk Songs” green labels found on Wizardo and Ken titles.
The first sighting of this special “400 Series” label.
Also seen with “Old Glory” labels and probably blank ones as well.
WRMB / KO-405: Mccartney Hot Hits and Cold Cuts – Renaissance Minstrels 4
Pirate LP compiling the single A & B sides for:
Apple 1847 Give Ireland Back To The Irish / Give Ireland Back To The Irish (version) Apple 1851 Mary Had A Little Lamb / Little Woman Love Apple 1857 Hi Hi Hi / C Moon Apple 1861 B-side ‘The Mess’ (to ‘My Love’) Apple 1863 B-side ‘I Lie Around’ (to ‘Live And Let Die’) Apple 1869 B-side ‘Country Dreamer’ (to ‘Helen Wheels’) Apple 1876 Junior’s Farm / Sally G.
WRMB / KO -406: Beatles ‘Sweet Apple Trax’ 3 LP
I believe the entry on the fantastic vinylegs reference website for this bootleg – # 1295 – is incorrect in two ways: 1. “Date: e70s * Format: 3LP-CV” (I do not believe this was ever available in colored vinyl; the WRMB 343 double set, however was). 2. The images show a WRMB 343 double set and not the KO-406 version, as clearly visible on the cover scan (I used this for my Sweet Apple Trax entry found here).
WRMB / KO-407: The Beatles ‘More Get Back Sessions’
Confirmed sightings on Dog & Cat and Old Glory labels.
WRMB / KO-408, a straight copy of the 1972 Dittolino Disc release with the original D-1 matrix number still visible in the copy’s inner groove – and as luck would have it, so it is in the below image of an original.
