COMMENTARY

An unpleasant dub from two previously released GET BACK LPs. Although all the "Get Back Acetate" tracks reproduced on this LP were originally available in stereo, the producers used for many of them the badly sounding mono WCF version of GET BACK TO TORONTO; moreover, the left channel is slightly delayed, thus these tracks actually sound as if they were stereo (of course the result is ridiculous).

RELEASES

The majority of the records came on a printed black sleeve with white titles, black labels with company and track listing (photo below the title). The matrix number on the label was miswritten CMBR 12 A/B instead of CBMR 12 A/B.

A copy with the original record inside has rubber stamped title and manufacturer on front and back cover, with "Stereo" miswritten "Sterio". Another copy has the same rubber stamp printed on a sleeve with a drawing in pink color. Both of these versions are exceedingly rare.

INTEREST. Musically worthless, this record has a very high collectible interest. The copies with rubber-stamped sleeve are virtually impossible to find, but also the usual record is quite rare (**** / *****).
