WRMB 507 / 508: The great Wizardo Cock Up – Jefferson Starship ‘Live’ and Kiss ‘unnecessary evil.’

The original plan was simple, create two new releases numbered 507 and 508 and put the same number on the slip sheets to match the matrix numbers. And then someone got mixed up…

Kiss 508

Kiss 508 lbl

Kiss 508 blue 2

Called the rarest Kiss vinyl bootleg in existence as almost all found copies play the Jefferson Starship master – supposedly only 10 copies exist that actually play the Kiss recording.

The originally intended album was probably created by borrowing Vicky Vinyl’s tape released earlier on Destroys Anaheim/ Part Two  on her Idle Mind label and creating a new master that also included a track by opening act Starz (creating some kind of a record by only ever having one song bootlegged out of your whole career and on top of that have the actual record misprint and become incredibly rare).

Track list:

A 1. Detroit  Rock City
A 2. King of the Nighttime World
A 3. Let me go Rock´n Roll
A 4. Strutter
A 5. Deuce

B 1. Bass Solo
B 2. God Of Thunder
B 3. Drum Solo
B 4. God of Thunder reprise
B 5. Pull the Plug (Starz)

A copy playing the intended Kiss tracks just sold for over $700 in March of 2013 (the copy with the cat & dog records went unsold at $33 this June, while a blue Wizardo label copy – still a mismatch containing JS – achieved $280 in November of 2012, go figure). The owner could only quote the the haphazardly written track list off the insert: ‘Get Up, Get Down’ [this is obviously ‘Detroit Rock City’]/ She [not performed at this show, so that raises some doubts]/ Strutter / Deuce / Let Me Go Rock’n Roll/ ‘Rock’n Roll Thunder’ [obviously God Of Thunder] and a song by  Starz, who may also have been on the bill.
