Released ca. late fall/early winter of 1979, K&S beat the competition when their source tape trumped the offerings on Raven [ LIVE AT KNEBWORTH AUG. 4/79 PART 1 &2 ] and Ken’s Phoenix [ KNEBWORTH 79 ]
and the Raven label [ KNEBWORTH II ] released around the mid-80s:
Although the material would have fit on a 3 LP set, it was padded out unnecessarily with BBC ’69 and Montreux 1970 material.
BLONDIE ‘GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDIE’ – all copies seized by the FBI ca. February 1980
Side one Live, side two studio 45’s: cover, labels and trail off reports “EC9000” as catalogue and matrix #. This run was mainly seized by FBI in the same raid with Blondie K&S 058 “Gentlemen prefer Blondie” and Elvis Presley K&S 070 “Elvis Presley 7lp set” both all seized. Only few handful of copies survived the raid. Black vinyl only
According to Going Through The Motions, side one is from February 13, 1979, Long Beach Arena, Long Beach, CA. Side two is a bunch of pirated B-sides and give-aways (before Taking Liberties this was worth something. “Neat Neat Neat” was the only one not to appear on that album).
Collector’s comment: “The live recording has the frequency response of a telephone. The pirated stuff sounds okay.”
A concert review for the 14 February show appeared in the 5 April ’79 issue of Rolling Stone – # 288.
Some dealers have decided that this is one of the world’s most valuable bootleg – see Mamma/GMV Records on musicstack/gemm – asking 5K Euros for it and claiming only 5 copies made it out [which I doubt]. Reality check: In its newest eBay auction, a copy sold forjust $57 in January of 2014.

Pressed on red PVC from “original plates” which I assume to be Hoffman Avenue Records / Idle Mind plates.

Although, there are two mistakes here: The title is slightly misspelled and it’s not a double set.
The Jersey Devil / King Of The Alley (Matrix: TMOQ 5466) is a “stealth” repressing Lou Cohan did in 1977 (after getting busted in late ’76) of his own Hoffman Avenue Records title # 147 and either the first or second Springsteen bootleg ever, released in September of 1975:
As a footnote and to confuse things a bit more, the original album was referred to in later issues as # 161:
