Wizardo 400 series

Wizardo’s 400 series was a short series of 7 to 8 releases containing a mix of straight copies of bootlegs released by other labels and pirated official tracks, that focused on Beatles and solo-Beatles recordings.

WRMB / KO -406: Beatles ‘Sweet Apple Trax’ 3 LP

I believe the entry on the fantastic vinylegs reference website for this bootleg – # 1295 – is incorrect in two ways: 1. “Date: e70s * Format: 3LP-CV” (I do not believe this was ever available in colored vinyl; the WRMB 343 double set, however was). 2. The images show a WRMB 343 double set and not the KO-406 version, as clearly visible on the cover scan (I used this for my Sweet Apple Trax entry found here).

Confirmed sightings on Dog & Cat and Old Glory labels.

WRMB / KO-408, a straight copy of the 1972 Dittolino Disc release with the original D-1 matrix number still  visible in the copy’s inner groove – and as luck would have it, so it is in the below image of an original.
