Return of the Holy Grail Records labels after encountering them first on JL 1004: Beatles – ON STAGE IN JAPAN – The 1966 TOUR.
Google has never heard of an official record with this title and if it ever existed it has either remained in total obscurity or was shelved at the last minute and the labels were lying around at an L.A. pressing plant. The third and most favored theory is that this is an invention/meant as a smoke screen and deterrent for closer scrutiny by the bootleggers (Ken?) who reissued (mostly double) TMOQ titles in California around the second half of 1976 / early 1977, reminiscent of the Von Grossenschuss paper label used on Wizardo re-issues I have blogged about before.
It seems that the JL crew liked this label so much, they decided to copy and use it as well. This allows us to date JL 1004 and JL 529 to 1977.
Confirmed sightings so far:
Led Zeppelin: On Blueberry Hill
Jimi Hendrix: ALIVE / L.A. FORUM – LIVE! / BROADCASTS MAUI
Rolling Stones: GIMME SHELTER / AMERICAN TOUR 75 VOLUME 1, 2 (single volumes of the last bootleg Dub ever released: L.A. FOG (TMOQ 8207/8 – ca. 2nd half of 1976)) / EUROPEAN TOUR 1973
The Beatles: LAST LIVE SHOW
The Who: TALES FROM THE WHO
[There are probably more out there]
Were there any brown U.S. originals? I have yet to see one.

Quite a change from the original: The copied version of a WIZARDO REKORDS [sic] label.
