K&S 041 – 045: CSNY ‘OHIO – WOODEN NICKEL’ / ELP ‘CELESTIAL DOGGIE: THE LOBSTER QUADRILLE’ / PINK FLOYD ‘FLOYDS OF LONDON’ / SUPERTRAMP ‘THE 1978 TOUR’ / ROXY MUSIC ‘HAMMERSMITH ODEON 1979’ /
“150 pressed on MCV from TMOQ plates (of 71013). Exs.”
Reissue of one of the earliest CSNY bootlegs. As this adds two more tracks (the studio version of “Ohio” and a live take of “Find the cost of freedom”), I would guess that it was released after Dittolino Disc’s # 0003: Bluebird Live / Wooden Nickel on Canyon Records:
Reissue of the Phonygraf double album. Only 150 copies made.
A now hard to find reissue of the Contraband original previously reviewed under this link.
Back copied William Stout’s die-cut generic cover design:
A couple of mistakes here:
Supertramp toured in 1977 and ’79 only, so this is likely from 1977 (they played Maple Leaf Gardens on 1st and 2nd of June that year). The final song is likely “Asylum” and not “Poor Boy”. Rated “Exs” in Hot Wacks, described as “very good aud. recording” by a different rater.
If the location is correct, this would be a K&S exclusive release – somewhat of a rarity.
Correct venue listed on sleeve. Source: BBC broadcast from 18 May 1979, making it the latest and youngest concert recording to be released on K&S and helping us to pinpoint the release date for this and the following titles as from summer of ’79 onwards. Another K&S original release.

While researching this title I found that the great Roxy Music site Roxyrama.com has now been taken offline – too bad, it was the best.
I have a copy of the 041 K&S crosby, stills, nash & young album.
