By early 1975 CBM had run out of new unreleased Beatles material, so they repressed previously available material, with an attempt to pass it for something new by lying about its source: side A is reported as being from a live show broadcasat by WBOX radio in September 1965, whereas it was copied from LAST LIVE SHOW, with the addition of track 3, a BBC release altered with a dubbed "live'' audience scream.
February 1975 (photo below the title). The first pressing had an insert in rainbow colors, red to blue, with track listing and the King Kong logo, on a jellow jacket that had the "Classics of Modern Jazz"drawing by J. Fish printed on the back; the disc had orange Instant Analysis labels with side indications. Subsequent releases, all produced in 1975, had the insert on a white jacket, sometimes printed monochromatic red. Vinyl and pressing are good for all the releases.
INTEREST. Surely one of the least interesting CBM records, mainly usable only for collectors. Uncommon. **
Side A of this record was included with side A of SUNDAY NIGHT AT THE LONDON PALLADIUM in the compilation COMPLETE FOREST HILLS-LONDON - SUPER LIVE CONCERT SERIES 6. This record will have its own entry.
THE JAPANESE JL COUNTERFEIT
1975. The Japanese label JL Records released their counterfeit on matrix JL 523 A / JL 523 B, with the original insert directly printed on the jacket, in decreased color contrast, with JL 523 added on bottom right; the disc had counterfeited orange Instant Analysis labels.
INTEREST. Useful for the Japanese collectors, and for completists. **
