Limited re-pressing of TMOQ 71076

“Have You heard The Word” (HW quality rating: satisfactory) by the Fut had first appeared on the Contraband LP with the same title, released in February of 1973 and preceding this TMOQ title by  about three to four months.   “Don’t Let Me Down” & “Those Were The Days” (satisfactory; 29 March 1969 Amsterdam Hilton “Bed In”, from a VPRO radio interview with Wim Noordhoek & Jan Donkers).  John’s short improvised version of “Cottonfields” (very good) was originally broadcast 5 June 1968 on the The Kenny Everett Show.  I suspect that “Twist and Shout” (good) are the Swedish radio recordings from Karlaplanstudio Stockholm, 24 Oct 1963 while the last track “Dizzy Miss Lizzy” (satisfactory) came the last ever Beatles BBC radio performance “The Beatles (Invite You To Take A Ticket To Ride)”, recorded 26 May 1965 and aired: 7 June 1965. 

Side 2 starts with “You Really Got A Hold On Me” (good), likely taken from the Swedish radio broadcast as well, especially if it is live, as no other live performance exists. “Roll Over Beethoven” (good) and the first two tracks on side2: “All My Loving” & “I Wanna Be Your Man” (both good) likely are identical with side 2 of CBM’s Sweden 1963 (wrongly attributed as having first appeared on CBM’s Mary Jane in the book Way Beyond Compare): From Us To You # 2, recorded on 28 February 1964 at BBC Piccadilly Studios in London and broadcast on 30 March ’64. “A Hard Day’s Night” (very good) and “Things We Said Today” (good) plus the interview are obviously from the summer of 1964 and are most likely really from the Beatles’ Top of the Pops appearances (as Hot Wacks states). A promo video of “Long Tall Sally” had been shown on 1 & 8 July ’64; “A Hard Days Night” played from the disc on 8, 15 and 22 of July & 5 August and “Things We Said Today” on 29 July ’64. The final track, “From Us To You” (poor) might also derive from the From Us To You # 2 radio program,  recorded on 28 February 1964 and broadcast on 30 March ’64.

According to HW, tracks come from San Francisco – 9 April 1979 and Chicago, Park West (where he would play again that November) – 28 April ’79; no detailed information available. The San Francisco recording has been up at wolfgangsvault for a while from the KSAN master.  Material from this performance was also issued on Ken’s Excitable Recordworks label around the same time as THE BEST KEPT GIRL IN THE WEST .

The Runaways reissue of Wizardo / death 525 was previously visited in this post.

I looked again but the only images found are still the Youtube video images. In any case, the covers only differ in the added K&S logo.
