Quality rating: ‘Gs’ and a notch below that for the King Kong/CBM release shown here:

R&R Circus

Mushroom reissues on colored vinyl – better artwork but why show the Rolling Stones, when they are not even featured on the album?

From a reviewer:

“The fidelity of this boot is exceptional, excepting the live tracks, which are still quite acceptable. Detailed liner notes on the back cover explain the source of each track presented. For the B.S. fan, this stuff is pretty essential, available nowhere else. Grades – 2 A-‘s, 3 B+’s, 4 B’s, 3 B-‘s, a C+, and a C.”
