“Inevitably. Hot Wacks was not the product of some dispassionate observer but someone who had been getting his own hands dirty. Kurt Glemser was already dipping into the mire at the time of Hot Wacks IV. K (as in Kurt) & S Records’ first release, a collection of live Led Zeppelin recordings, had appeared at the beginning of 1976. In the grand tradition of copycat bootleggers, Sin City Social was a shoddy mix’n’match drawn exclusively from TMQs Bonzo’s Birthday Party, Three Days After and Blueberry Hill.” [Heylin, Bootleg, p. 131]

And in blue:

 

Who Raw Blu

The ‘insider joke’ – and it took me a while to get this as well – is that the title is an alternative spelling for “Hurrah!)”.

A K&S original release, the Who recorded at Maple Leaf Gardens on 11 December 1975. Unfortunately, not a great sounding source tape to start with and since then surpassed by the CD releases presenting the complete show. One thing’s for sure, The Who tended to always put on a good show in Toronto.

008: ROLLING STONES ‘BURNING AT THE HOLLYWOOD PALLADIUM’ – 100 copies only.

“Q: Was it just Dub & Ken that you knew from that world or did you also get to meet Kurt Glemser (your drawing of Mick Jagger was used on the K&S version of ‘Burning At The Hollywood Paladium’), John Wizardo, Andrea Waters, the Rubber Dubber guy or any of the other bootleg producers from that era?

W. Stout: I met a few of the other bootleggers, usually at the Hollywood Record Swap Meet in the Capitol Records parking lot. For the most part they were pretty sleazy and seemed untrustworthy. This intuitive feeling was borne out when the other bootleggers started stealing TMOQ’s recordings and putting them out on their own labels. Meeting them made me glad I was working with “Ken” and Dub. I don’t think I ever met the Rubber Dubber — but I bought his records. I don’t think I ever heard of Kurt.

Q: Did anyone else approach you to do work for them?

W. StoutI think the other bootleggers were too intimidated by “Ken” and Dub to ask me to do covers for them. It was probably perceived of as a “turf” thing.

The copy shown below reached GBP 1220 at auction in March of 2011.

009: LED ZEPPELIN ‘BLUEBERRY HILL’ – 150 pressed from the EV666-664 plates and either because they felt it looked better with labels or these just happened to be available: With TAKRL and 1970’s GLC labels. The copy shown here sold for $1,325.00 in January of 2014. K&S may have done mostly copy jobs but they certainly increased nicely in value in many cases.

Already looking at these side by side, it becomes obvious that they were made by the same producers and probably as part of a run of re-issues within a limited time frame.

WHO GLC 414

The Who’s Who Are You (aka Mods & Rockers), better known fort the reissue with Ruthless Rhymes labels (some on red & blue PVC), which is even cataloged under GLC 414 and containing 16 tracks from their Philadelphia Spectrum KBFH recording from 4 December 1973:

WHO GLC 414 II

Other releases with GLC numbers are (the last two releases previously reviewed on this blog):

If you have any further examples of this label with the same design and in any color (not the block lettering found from 1983 onwards, which is much more common). please let me know.

Deep Purple JMTYL 2

Deep Purple JMTYL detail

Rolling Stones Rock Out Cock Out detail

There were two different cover designs, the “Music From Big Purple” shown above with the two figures in the bottom right corner and one without:

Deep Purple JMTYL

Deep Purple JMTYL Duck Hits MBP 990 A

Both versions can be found with “Duck Hits!”and Ruthless Rhymes labels. I did not find this with the blue 1970’s GLC labels shown previously with the Stones release and the Beatles Beatlemania but the Deep Purple LP can be found with the following matrix: 

GLC-212-A  re  /  GLC-212-B

– called the second pressing, which would support my theory that these releases date from around 1977.

Deep Purple JMTYL RR

This looks like a third cover variation.

Just as in the first example, I have found another one where the track list for side 2 is hidden or censored. Coincidentally, Hot Wacks states that only side 1 is from the California Jam Festival and side two contains pirated material from the official release In Concert.

Deep Purple JMTYL censored

The other vinyl bootleg to compare this with in term’s of sound quality would be PERKS AND TIT on TAKRL (also the one I would go to first, had this not since been officially released, as it has more California Jam material).

Set list taken from the 2003 official release:

Burn    (6:20)
Might Just Take Your Life    (4:50)
Lay Down, Stay Down    (4:46)
Mistreated    (10:24)    
Smoke On The Water    (8:56)
You Fool No One    (19:09)
Space Truckin’    (25:10)

****

Yet another link between the Stones and the Deep Purple LP is that they have been listed with PQ numbers. In Hot Wacks rock out – cock out is listed as PQ211.

Just Might Take Your Life carries PQ 2004, which is also printed on the slip sheet.

I have now stumbled over another example, clearly produced by the same folks with a penchant for hallucinogenic cover art and an overall similar lay out:  PQ 401

Grateful Dead Double Dead

Not found with a GLC label but a plain white one:

Grateful Dead Double Dead lbl

which confirms my thesis that the 70s GLC label was used considerably later than 1974.

It is not hard to date DOUBLE DEAD , as it was a ‘Frankenstein’ creation born by combining Felt Forum 1971 and, more importantly for us, SILENT DEAD – TMoQ 73010. As ‘smoking pig’ releases 73008 (Dylan – Best of GWW) and 73018 (James Paul McCartney) have been confirmed as 1974 releases – the Dylan cover uses an image from his early 1974 tour – SILENT DEAD was released in the same year and DOUBLE DEAD subsequently after that.

If you know any further PQ releases, or have any other comments or additions, do let me know.

A little excursion:

Coming back to that “Deep Purple” and DYLAN & THE BAND 1974 title font – it rang a bell too.

“Information:
A very rare and misunderstood LP from 1974 from the folks that would become TMOQ-2. The confusion lies both with the relative unavailability of the LP, and with misinformation of earlier chronologies. The earlier guides, Cable and Hot Wacks, failed to list it altogether. As it doesn’t have an actual title, it has been referred to by several. “1974” and “Oakland” among them. Great White Answers gives it the title “We Didn’t Really Get It On Until Oackland” from a misspelling of a quote on the back insert.

It also states that the cover is full printed. Most likely it never was. GWA also reports a blank label. While there might have been one or two blank, the labels were actually full printed with a “Great Live Concerts” label. More confusion set in with the publication of Raging Glory. It titles the set “Dylan & The Band 1974”. While it correctly lists the package features of two inserts and blue and yellow labels, it states that the set is a 1985 reissue of the original 1974 release. There was no reissue. The fact is, there were only a few copies manufactured in 1974 (Heylin suggests a 1977 date, although that would negate the theory of the piece being produced during the TMOQ changeover). They have inserts and full printed labels. GWA reported “Rolling Stones” LPs issued in the covers as well, but this is doubtful.

Whatever the reason for the small quantity run, at about the same time period TMOQ was releasing the St. Valentine Day box. This was from the show of 3 days later at Inglewood. Since the two shows were similar, it’s very feasible that this project simply got lost in the hubbub of the other projects, and in the transfer of power between the TMOQ regimes.

John Elton BBB Benny 2

Aha!

All of these releases can be found with black number labels as shown – however, they were clearly released much earlier than 1977, probably around 1974.  So for the Deep Purple re-issue, this might just have been “font recycling”.

***

The ‘number labels’ & 70’s GLC connection is further cemented by this recent Bob Dylan ‘combo’ discovery that I did not find documented on bobsboots.com:

Dylan JBSB Stealin

****

To summarize, the starting point was releases made by Vicki Vinyl on her Dragonfly/Duck Hits! label, including reissues.

This blog post traces similarities in the insert design between the two releases mentioned in the title and the rare Bob Dylan double set shown and the question: When was that Dylan double released? 1974 or 1977?

The font shared with the other bootlegs points to 1974 but the fact that it is only found with the early GLC (or Dragonfly) labels points to 1977. Perhaps there was a reissue of the Dylan title after all?

A (rare) release sporting the same kind of GLC label(s) is this one, missed by Hot Wacks as well. It apparently exists with Dragonfly labels as well:

2LP DYLAN, BOB DYLAN & THE BAND 1974 DRAGONFLY RECORDS 4-11-ABCD Oakland, CA 2/11/74 black [from a list offered on iorr.org in 2010]

bobsboots.com believes that this album was made in 1974: “A very rare and misunderstood LP from 1974 from the folks that would become TMOQ-2. The confusion lies both with the relative unavailability of the LP, and with misinformation of earlier chronologies. The earlier guides, Cable and Hot Wacks, failed to list it altogether.

While it correctly lists the package features of two inserts and blue and yellow labels, it states that the set is a 1985 reissue of the original 1974 release. There was no reissue. “

While Heylin has placed it in in 1977 and seen in context with the other Vicki Vinyl releases – especially The Stones’ rock out – cock out * – and* the fact that this was also quoted to exist with Dragonfly labels leads me to believe that Heylin got it right and bobsboots is wrong here.

“The fact is, there were only a few copies manufactured in 1974 (Heylin suggests a 1977 date, although that would negate the theory of the piece being produced during the TMOQ changeover). They have inserts and full printed labels. GWA reported “Rolling Stones” LPs issued in the covers as well, but this is doubtful [Definitely with those labels, not sure how the “covers” comment is meant]. […] ”

Apart from the track list being wrong there is then another issue (and a general sound one):

“The original version came with printed labels and a large pink insert cover. The song order is incorrect on the cover. The photo used for the cover is from the “Rolling Stones 1973 Tour in Hawaii” concert program. The cover says Live in Europe ’73-’74, so maybe they weren’t too sure about the year. There is a flaw in the opening track as there is a doubling of Brown Sugar. Two sources played at the same time, but one slightly delayed from the another. When one of the two finally stops you are just left with lousy fidelity.” [rollingstonesnet.com]

dbboots dates it “pre-1995”, which covers basically 97% or so of all vinyl bootlegs ever produced. Let me try to narrow it down a bit more to late 1977/early 1978. Corrections welcome, as always.

I imagine that obvious non-Beatles fan Vicki Vinyl was offered this compilation tape in late 1976/ early 1977 – long before the word “outfake” existed. However, this album and her sort of follow up 20 X 4 ended up becoming prime examples.

The somewhat grandiose wording needed to be brought down to earth and what buyers really got was:

– one channel of the stereo mixes for “Savoy Truffle” and “Hey Bulldog” (called “outtakes”)

– one channel of the stereo mix for “It’s Only Love” (called an “acoustic version”)

– a song by The Fourmost, “I Love You Too” (called “Paul singing with The Fourmost”)

– “Frenzy And Distortion” from Apple’s RAGA LP, by Ravi Shankar (called “Not Guilty”(!))

– “My Bonnie” with English and German intros (only problem is, underneath the German intro you can hear the English one again at about half the maximum volume)

– Ron Nasty (Neil Innes) doing “Cheese And Onions” on “Saturday Night Live”

– Linda McCartney doing “Oriental Nightfish” from the film of the same name

The last two must have been left over from a double album job but they were also used for this single LP.

It’s 1972 and the first unreleased Beatles song has leaked – why not have it be the most off-wall-ish one of them all? I’d love to know how Contraband got that tape. It is known that a four track copy of this 3:09 stereo mix had been made at Abbey Road in late June of 1971.

Side 1: What’s The New Mary Jane (incomplete) / Shout! / Ed Rudy phone interview w/George (ca. 8 February 1964)* / People Say (not the Beatles) / You Know My Name (Look Up The Number) (released B-side)
Side 2: Long Tall Sally / A Hard Day’s Night / Things We Said Today (these last 3 are BBC recordings from July of 1964)/ I’m Walking (B-side to ‘People Say’) / Sie Liebt Dich (released 45)  

* from a broadcast of an Ed Rudy open-end interview disc, with the questions dubbed in by a French DJ

From a 1972 perspective, this was a pretty good album. Excepting the two tracks taken from official 45’s, pretty much every single track had never been available before. The complete version of the lead off track would be made available for the first time in 1973 on TMoQ’s Spicy Beatles Songs.

A bit off topic: The decision to not include “What’s The new Mary Jane” on the White Album was only made at the 11th hour during a 24 hour marathon session preparing the final pre-master from October 16th – 17th. Would we feel about it differently if it had stayed?

****

Such was the appeal of being able to offer an unreleased Beatles song for the first time – or maybe it was that ‘wink wink, nod nod’ drug reference, that CBM got copied themselves in 1973:

Ca. 1975, King Kong records gave it another spin:

I had said at the start of the CBM series that I would go easy on the label images and here I am happily showing every label variation I have stumbled upon. I’m getting carried away but hopefully in a good way. My used up space indicator is stuck at 4%, so I guess I can keep going like this until post # 5000 (not that there will ever be one, of course).
