More WCF pirates: J. GEILS BAND ‘LIVE FROM GERMANY’ (# 777) and DEEP PURPLE ‘made in japan’ (#804/5)

J. Geils Band LFG

Matrix: 777 X A / B

A straight copy of their official live album, which was recorded in Detroit in late April of 1972 BTW and not in Germany:

J. Geils FH

It was officially released 26 September, 1972, peaked at # 54 on the album charts.


Deep Purple MIJ

Deep Purple MIJ lbl

Matrix : 804 – A / B & 805 – A / B

Officially released ca. December of 1972.

I did not expect any bootlegger to be so brazen and copy this famous live album but here is the proof. This release did much better than “LIVE” FULL HOUSE,  reaching # 6 in the US and eventually going platinum. I would place both WCF pirates at the start of 1973.
