RELEASES BY CBM
1. Early 1974 (photo below the title). Similarly to the previous two Cinelogues (A HARD DAY'S NIGHT and HELP!) this was also a 2-LP set, with an insert cover designed by D'Anunzio and printed in red to blue color and with the jacket with the J. Fish drawing on the back (however, usually HELP had a normal white jacket). The records had the yellow Instant Analysis labels, with SIDE I / SIDE II indications for the first disc and no side indications for the second disc.
All these Cinelogue records were realized at the pressing plant whose marking is a ring at 7 mm from the central hole, and the vinyl is of good quality.
2. Early 1975. The second pressing had orange labels, both with SIDE I / SIDE II indications. The discs were in a yellow jacket, with the drawing by J. Fish "Classics Of Jazz Radio" printed on the back.
A further pressing, probably released in early 1976, had the usual white jacket, and the labels were orange Instant Analysis and green Shalom.
INTEREST. This, and the previous Cinelogues by CBM, were a must at the time, and nowadays are still attractive bootlegs for collectors.***/**
THE WIZARDO RECORDS RELEASE. Also this record was copied in 1975 by Wizardo Records. However, this version includes several more tracks, and therefore it will have its own entry.
