WCF does JETHRO TULL pt. 1: ‘U.S. Tour April 1972 Volume II’ (a WCF copy, # 901)

I was not able to find an image for # 2235 JIM HENDRIX – ‘SCUSE ME WHILE I KISS THE SKY so that one will have to be skipped for now.

***

Three Tull copies, likely released by WCF in the 2nd half of 1972 – early 1973.

  1. U.S. TOUR  APRIL  1972   VOLUME II

Jethro Tull US Tour April 1972

 

The cover art “borrowed” from CBM down to a ‘T’.

WCF’s detailed album track list:

A1 Wind Up / instrumental by Martin Barre
A2 Locomotive Breath / Hard-Headed English General / Wind-Up Reprise
B1 Thick As A Brick pt. 1
B2 Thick AS A Brick pt. 1 (cont.)

Source: The Scope in Norfolk, VA on April 22, 1972.

Below, the CBM original with matrix markings 3426 for Side 1, which is identical to Á1+2 on the WCF album above but Side 2 is different, playing Cross-Eyed Mary / A New Day Yesterday / Aqualung – and the matrix is ‘3436-B JTB Scope’.

 

 

The two segments of “Thick As A Brick” on WCF’s Side 2 appear to be identical to plate ‘3436-A JTA Scope’ as released on CBM’s ticketron.

CBM created two plates for “Cross-Eyed Mary / A New Day Yesterday / Aqualung”: ‘3436-B JTB Scope’ – used for the titles ticketron & U.S. TOUR APRIL 1972 VOLUME II and ‘JTB 3420 3436B’ also used on Side 2 of BALTIMORE AND AROUND NOVEMBER 1972

Around 1975, CBM created yet another master plate as they needed to pair down the Norfolk material to two album sides for the rare double album RETROROC, combining it with LIVE MAY 1973. Just over six minutes of “Wind Up” were extracted and tacked on to “Thick As A Brick” and issued with the matrix number 3436 A (side 2 had the usual C-E M/A N D Y/AQ).

This is one of the most popular recordings from the “Thick as a Brick” tour and deservedly so: it’s a blistering and highly energetic performance captured on a great sounding audience tape.”Ticketron” was first issued with an edited version of part one of “Thick as a Brick” on side A and the “Wind-Up” encore section on side B. After a while, a second version of the LP with the same side A but with “Cross-Eyed Mary”, “A New Day Yesterday” and “Aqualung” on side B was pressed, liberating 25 minutes more from the show. ” (notes from a restoration project)

**

While I believe that the WCF version with the blue title/number labels comes in a single sleeve with a slip sheet, there was also this ca. 1973 reissue in a folder but without an artist image on the back yet, likely a transitional phase between the insert and the deluxe folder covers.
