Well, this has a ‘deluxe’ blue cover but the original release on Atlantic was reissued with one as well, so I doubt this is the K&S version. If anyone has an image of that, please leave a comment.

There were several versions of this album, taken from a radio broadcast on 14 September 1978 (shortly before KBFH taped the band and headliner Cheap Trick at the Palladium in NYC, as released on the Audifön label/Vicky Vinyl boots THE CARS 78 and 78 CALIFORNIA MAN)

Cars El Mocambo 2

Mostly found as a stamped white LP:

Cars El Mocambo 3

Interesting text added by an eBay seller in May of 2013: “The Cars doing what they do best on stage at the El Mocambo in Toronto on Sept. 14, 1978. Stereo pro recording. If I recollect, some of these were on multi-colored vinyl, but I don’t know if this is one [ I doubt any of these exist on mcv. ]. This is a sealed, never-opened, brand spanking new copy from the Beggar’s Banquet collection, Anaheim’s long-gone “Underground” record store, boxed away for decades.”

I am aware of the YS 1600 double album with a deluxe b&w and later re-issued with a green & white cover (mostly found with yellow & tan but also with Slipped Disc labels):

 

Yes In The Round

and then sides 1&2 only on the 80’s style GLC label and limited to 100 orange copies as part of the LXXXIV series (# 57)

Yes ITR GLC 2

“Jiving Sister Fanny” was recorded on July 2nd, 1969 at Olympic Studio, the day before Brian Jones died.  Two versions with different lyrics were recorded that day.  This is the rarer of the two, having appeared on some pressings of Metamorphosis while the second take appears on most pressings of the album and on the London Years.  

“I’m Going Down” was initially worked on between April 17th to July 1969 at Olympic Studio and later right before the US tour from October and November, 1969 in Los Angeles.  This take, which was also used for Metamorphosis in 1975, dates from July 14th and July 15th, 1970 at Olympic.  This track differs from the commercial version by having a false start.  This track features Bobby Keys on sax, Rocky Dijon on percussion, Stephen Stills on guitar, and Bill Plummer on upright bass.  

“Hamburger To Go” (aka “Give Me A Hamburger To Go” and “Stuck Out Alone”) dates from sessions at Olympic from March and April, 1968 and remains unreleased.  ”Downtown Susie” is a Bill Wyman tune recorded on April 23rd, 1969 at Olympic Studio and is the same as the version on Metamorphosis except is shorter at the fade by five seconds.  

“Blood Red Wine”  was recorded May, 1968 at Olympic Studio.  Jagger sings the vocals, Nicky Hopkins plays piano, and no other information is available.  It has never been released which is a shame because it is the most intriguing song in this collection.  “Travelin’ Man” is another unreleased song recorded at Olympic in October, 1970.

The first version of “Family” dates from May, 1968 in Olympic and it the arrangement with the electric guitar.  The acoustic guitar arrangement which would appear on Metamorphosis would be recorded the following month.  “Still A Fool” was recorded at the same sessions and is a ten minute jam on the Muddy Waters tune.  Jagger tries his best to sing like the blues singer too.

Six out of the last seven tracks are instrumentals.  “Leather Jacket,” recorded on June 22nd, 1970 at Olympic Studio in London, is a lighthearted and infectious pop instrumental whose sunniness is outside the pale of the Stones.  “Dancing In the Light,” dating from the spring of 1970, is another upbeat instrumental but with some recognizable Stones raunch.  “Potted Shrimp” and “Aladdin Story” come from the same time period as “Leather Jacket” but recorded at Stargroves.  “And I Was A  Country Boy” comes from the Feb.18-Mar.31 1969 sessions.

“Who Am I?” (aka “See I Love You”) is a true mystery.  It is listed on this release as being from Olympic Studio in March to May 1970.  Others sources say late 1969 and even others from Jamaica 1972 and still others claim it comes from 1963 because of its simplicity.  The best sources say it was recorded on July 14th – 15th, 1970.

The final Trident jam is another mystery.  There is no name associated with it and was never used by the band.  […] Although there are no hidden gems on this (there is a reason why many of them still reside in the vaults) but this is an interesting collection. ” [collectorsmusic.com]

Cheap Trick 78 CM

Also available with blank white labels but mostly found with a white and a yellow label with side markings. A large number must have been pressed as the bootleg is very easy to find up to this day, even sealed copies.

Sides 1 – 3: WBCN broadcast of an edited performance from the Paradise in Boston on 10 June 1978; side 4: KBFH broadcast of an excerpt from the Palladium in New York on 22 September 1978 – mislabeled as coming from the Bottom Line in NY

Side 1:  Hello There – Come On, Come On (4:00)  / Stiff Competition  (4:21) / On Top Of The World (5:50)  / Guitar Solo  (2:29)  / Big Eyes  (3:04) / High Roller  (4:54)                                                         Side 2:    Clock Strikes Ten  (4:48) / Need Your Love  (8:13) /  Southern Girls  (3:49)                       Side 3:    Surrender  (5:59)  /  California Man  (4:02)  /  Goodnight Now  – Bun E. Carlos drum solo (3:23) / Auf Wiedersehen  (4:45) 

Quality: Muddy sounding FM broadcast, perhaps 3rd generation or higher, perhaps not well recorded in the first place. The only alternative source I have ever found was torrented on dime in August of 2007.

Side 4:  Hello There (1:44) / Southern Girls  (3:33)  / Need Your Love  (10:13)  / California Man  (4:13)  / Goodnight Now  (2:12)    

Quality: Excellent stereo recording, mix favors drums and Robin Zander’s rhythm guitar and is somewhat heavy on the treble and bass deficient. Nice overall room ambiance and audience mix Overall, I like this almost better than the Budokan mix. Love the drum sound and certain details like the ‘pick hitting strings sound’ at the start of “California Man”. For decades I had hopes that we would get a complete recording but it seems that will never happen as the master was not kept after the edit was assembled.

CT Paradise Boston '78

wolfgangsvault.com released the tape source with two additional songs (“Big Eyes” & “Clock Strikes Ten”) but labeled it at first as being from 1977. The following shows how the correct date and venue was found:

  • simonc | Sunday, November 01, 2009 | 6:47 am

must be just about the only ct concert edit that doesn’t have either surrender or iwytwm. still great though.

  • spinalcrackerbox | Sunday, November 01, 2009 | 11:00 am

simonc, this is because these are only excerpts and not the whole show. This first appeared on side 4 of the vinyl boot ‘California Man ’78’ and I loved it back then and wished we’d get the whole show one day. 30 years later, we got 2 more songs :-). At this rate I have to live a really long life, lol. Funnily, this is the only band on this website where we are always promised a new recording – this is the second time now, and we are always given the one we’ve already had. At least it’s a great one. The Bottom Line had 400 seats. For those who doubt this was recorded there, all shows that were recorded there have a similar ambiance. Check them out. Compare this, for example, to the two Peter Gabriel shows recorded a few months later on October 4th and you will agree that this is indeed the same venue.

  • spinalcrackerbox | Sunday, November 01, 2009 | 1:38 pm

And since I’m feeling like a detail freak tonight, I found the setlist for the NY, Palladium, 11/12/77 show – in case the Vault finds it after all: 1. HELLO THERE 2.COME ON, COME ON 3. ELO KIDDIES 4. SPEAK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE 5. BIG EYES 6. SOUTHERN GIRLS 7. DOWNED 8. MRS. HENRY 9. GOONIGHT NOW 10. CLOCK STRIKES TEN

  • spinalcrackerbox | Tuesday, November 03, 2009 | 11:46 am

Dear Wolfgangsvault, the correct venue is: The Bottom Line, New York & the correct date is still June 12, 1978

  • Dopeburger | Wednesday, November 04, 2009 | 11:26 am

Hey spinalcrackerbox, thanks for the input. We originally listed this show under the date/venue you suggest but, based on the audio, we decided this show could not have been recorded at the Bottom Line…the crowd noise, announcer, and Zander’s mic all indicate otherwise. Also, I believe we found out why this set was often mislabeled as the BL — it was broadcast with a BL Rockpile show and was so mistakenly assumed to have also been recorded there. Because they thank NYC, we narrowed it down to the Palladium in 77 or 78 and, thanks to recent help pinpointing this set as taking place in ’78, we’ve updated the date from ’77. It’s been a long, strange trip, but we’re pretty confident we’ve gotten to the bottom of this. thanks, pete

  • spinalcrackerbox | Sunday, November 22, 2009 | 2:59 am

Hi Pete, thanks for the message. I had always assumed that the original venue and date was correct and really hear a similar room feel compared to other BL recordings but I stand corrected. Have you ever found the rest of this show as obviously we have only selection of the full set here with many songs missing in between?
This is perhaps my favourite ever live recording, despite a lack of bass.

  • spinalcrackerbox | Sunday, November 22, 2009 | 4:05 am

Just to round out things, here’s the setlist for their Passaic, NJ show recorded in early December of ’78 (mostly listed as the 8th, also as the 5th – we only know for sure that CT played Calderone Hall in Hempstead, NY on the 9th as there is a ticket stub for this): 01 Hello There
02. Come On Come On
03. Stiff Competition
04. On Top Of The World
05. Guitar Solo
06. Big Eyes
07. Ain’t That A Shame
08. Southern Girls
09. Need Your Love
10. I Want You To Want Me
11. California Man

14. Heaven Tonight.
15. Auf Wiedersehen
16. Clock Strikes Ten

spinal,

Is it possible CT only played seven songs that night since thye were opening for The Cars? The Cars have a full show from the Palladium that same night. Seven songs still seems like a paltry set, but I just thought I’d throw that out there.

  • spinalcrackerbox | Sunday, December 13, 2009 | 5:51 am

Regarding CT only playing 7 songs and The Cars actually headlining: a.) I hear cuts between some songs: between 1. and 2. and 2. into 3. at least. b.) the ticket stub says:
Cheap Trick with The Cars – The Palladium (New York, NY) – September 22, 1978
So either it was a double bill or The Cars opened for CT but not the other way around.

  • spinalcrackerbox | Sunday, December 13, 2009 | 7:05 am

One more point to support my claim that this is not the complete show. CT’s setlist didn’t change much and in those early years “Come On, Come On” ALWAYS followed “Hello There”. They were more like a medley than two separate songs.

78 California Man was produced at the same time in 1979 as the Springsteen title Bruce Springsteen ’78 ACR 61. Copies of the CT title went out that contained one disc from the Springsteen set. I know, as I was one of the unlucky recipients of just such a set, ordered via the Pied Piper Catalog from Chapel Hill, NC. They did recall and exchange the sets though. Their next catalog talked about how they had left the running of the business to someone else, who hadn’t done such a good job, but now the real Pied Piper was back. Hmm, were they assembling albums as well? …  Funny that I still remember that but have forgotten infinitely more important details of my past life.

Cars 78Cars 78 b

I do believe that the same venue mis-identification issue applies here that we saw on 78 CALIFORNIA MAN : The Bottom line tracks are actually from the New York Palladium, 22 September 1978 (this recording is also available at wolfgangsvault and with even more tracks than the CT recording (12)). The bad news is that the sound is not good on either side of this album. The worst part of 1970’s bootlegging was the general lack of care applied to the mastering part, to release mediocre and azimuth misaligned material when that was not really necessary.

Side 1 (NY Palladium):

The Good Times Roll / My Best Friends Girl  / Since I Held You  / Just What I Needed  / You’re All I’ve Got Tonight   

Compare here: http://www.concertvault.com/the-cars/palladium-september-22-1978.html

If you were interested in this show, you had made a much better choice picking up 59 STUDE’ (THE BACKSEAT ) on Excitable Recordworks, which had more songs and sounded much better too.

Side 2: (Boston Paradise Theater, 01 July 1978 – Suicide & The Cars, broadcast on WBCN):

Bye Bye Love  / The Nights Fast  / I’m In Touch with Your World  / Moving In Stereo  / All Mixed Up

Original set list:

01 intro 2:00
02 Let the Good Times Roll 3:48
03 Bye Bye Love 4:30

Live broadcast from the Capitol Theater in Passaic, NJ – 19 September 1978. Misidentified city on the back cover – was this done intentionally to create an apparently different product from the Piece De Resistance box?

This is a new master, not just two of the Piece De Resistance discs sold in a new sleeve. I wonder which of the two came out first? Unfortunately there are no dates given on the brucespringsteen.it site.

Side 1: Badlands / Streets Of Fire / Independence Day / Promised Land
