WCF’s first version came with dark blue/purple labels with silver print and in a gatefold sleeve. Compare this with the reissue in the copied Rubber Dubber folder-style cover – last entry below).

Finally, around 1974, with Rubber Dubber long out of business, WCF reissued this title and copied their original deluxe cover design with the following differences:

  • While the front cover remained the same, the two circles on the back cover (“Rubber Dubber”and “$6”) were removed:

  • the label designed reversed back to the WCF original label design stating “Band” and “Rubber” but these were now turquoise:

  • Instead of a gatefold sleeve, the usual folder type outer sleeve construction was used:

This much later version is the one listed in HOTWACKS, giving the impression of listing a Rubber Dubber title with a WCF matrix.
