Why is this bootleg called SOME LIKE IT HOT! ? Is it a nod to Billy Wilder’s film classic? After all, this is also a movie soundtrack that’s presented here.
We’ve known this title for many decades, since it made it into HOT WACKS, misidentified as a MARC Records release. I would guess this was because they were looking at the white label version of OG-595.
Source: A (bootleg) video of the Let It Be movie soundtrack, I would assume.

Text from a Japanese Beatles bootlegs encyclopedia:
1st pressing: Color slick cover. Red label with silver print (as shown for 813 below).
Has anyone ever seen it with the color image? It must be very rare.
2nd pressing: B&W jacket b / w, label the same as the 1st. [Is this 813?]
Fake Idle Mind label version, ca. 1977:
Matrix # OC 595-A/B (hand written – as opposed to the machine stamped OG matrix numbers)
1968: The Beatles contemplating to form a folk/psych/hardcore/avantgarde super group with Mary Hopkin and Yoko. Their new album – suggestions for the cover are being reviewed in these photographs – carries the working title Hot As Sun.
I’m just kidding, of course.
