RELEASES BY CBM
1. Early 1974 (photo below the title). The first pressing of this item came with a slipsheet featuring a drawing by “D’Anunzio” in ‘rainbow’ color, but all the copies that we saw lack the “J. Fish” cartoon printed on the back that were generally used at the time. The discs had yellow Instant Analysis labels, with side 1 / side 2 indications for disc 1, and (as for all the Instant Analysis releases) were pressed on good quality vinyl.
2. Late 1974 to early 1975. A repressings had orange Instant Analysis labels and was released in a yellow colored jacket. As with Cinelogue III, there are no other releases. The most likely reason is that the masters remained at the pressing plant, that was not used by CBM in late 1974 and 1975. All the 1975 releases were in fact realized at the pressing plants based in Minnesota, whereas the records on the Instant Analysis label were apparently pressed at the plants in Virginia, originally used by CBM for all his records up to September 1973.
INTEREST. Historically interesting release. ***
THE WIZARDO RECORDS RELEASE
A copy of the CBM release was pressed by Wizardo Records from matrix 2WRMB 317 A / 2WRMB 317-B / 2WRMB 317-C / 2WRMB 317 D, titled HELP!
1. June 1975 (photo here above). The slipsheet was prepared on June 9, 1975 and was printed on light sepia-colored paper. The first pressing appeared with the usual dark blue labels of the Wizardo records of the time.
2. Late 1975. The second pressing had the same insert, or an insert on white paper, and light blue labels. No more releases by Wizardo are known.
INTEREST. Wizardo Record was an important company, so there is some interest, particularly for the first pressing. **.
