These are by no means all color but all found label variations (save blank white ones) for this release. Range of colors included a multi-color run plus similar colors as used for John Lennon’s 10″ “A guitar’s all right John but…”.

Date of release: May 1978

This was the first new BBC material since Contraband’s Stockholm LP presented tracks from the Easy Beat show of July 21, 1963, “in dreadful quality” in December of 1974. Obviously, a copy of a rehearsal tape had survived as this material was never broadcast in this form. More from the raw tape has surfaced on the digital release Unsurpassed Broadcasts – Volume Nine and there is extra material to extend the length of the available material from 24:40 to 27:00.
