Another CBM colored vinyl title surfaces – and it’s red!

That’s what I love about researching this topic: There are still so many details that we don’t know.

In this case, we knew the that Contraband had released four titles on colored PVC and they were all blue:

Stevens Cat Catnip 2 cv

British Blue Jam

Dylan B Seventy DR blu

Young N YMFancy blue

So, today, I come across this eBay auction (still active for another 5 days at the time I’m writing this):

Stewart R Plynth red 2

I thought maybe it’s a trick of the light (to quote The Who)…

Stewart R Plynth red d

… but no, there’s no doubt, that record is RED!

What else may be out there?

  1. Thanks. I was aware of the Elton John and the Hendrix/Mayall but did not count them as CBM’s.

    • From a comment I received:

      “There are more!
      Duane Allman – Statesboro Blues: red and another one purple
      Jethro Tull . Ticketron: red and another one purple
      Cat Stevens – Catnip: also in red
      Elton John – Radiochord: blue (not with CBM logo but same “family”)
      Hendrix / Mayall …: yellow (not with CBM logo but same “family”)”

    It’s just a simple assumption on my part, but I guess around 1972 to 1973 whomever produced CBM decided to imitate TMOQ and have their product pressed on colored vinyl ??? … As I believe Ken Douglas revealed in his blog, there was a slightly elevated cost to have colored vinyl pressings made (at least in California, where TMOQ was made), but I believe it was basically a sales gimmick, or something to distinguish the product and enhance sales … So “copying” seems to have been an ever recurring theme in the old bootleg vinyl world of the early 1970’s.

    • It does seem unlikely that it was CBM’s own idea to do this and I don’t think anyone else but TMOQ was doing it consistently at that time, so your theory has merit.
