Apart from the track list being wrong there is then another issue (and a general sound one):

“The original version came with printed labels and a large pink insert cover. The song order is incorrect on the cover. The photo used for the cover is from the “Rolling Stones 1973 Tour in Hawaii” concert program. The cover says Live in Europe ’73-’74, so maybe they weren’t too sure about the year. There is a flaw in the opening track as there is a doubling of Brown Sugar. Two sources played at the same time, but one slightly delayed from the another. When one of the two finally stops you are just left with lousy fidelity.” [rollingstonesnet.com]

dbboots dates it “pre-1995”, which covers basically 97% or so of all vinyl bootlegs ever produced. Let me try to narrow it down a bit more to late 1977/early 1978. Corrections welcome, as always.

Found with Duck, GLC, Ruthless Rhymes and in the 80’s on pink PVC and Raring Records label. Anyone seen it with Dragonfly labels?

A 1981 reissue on pink PVC was advertized with this sticker on the shrink wrap:

    Wow, never seen that one before. Love the fake comments on the cover supposedly by the Stones, trip.

    • It takes some balls to issue a bootleg and then claim that the artists in question raved about it, doesn’t it?
