COMMENTARY

This is one of the earliest pirate recordings to appear, issued for the UK market to make up for the absence of a domestic release of the"Hey Jude" album (albeit in vastly inferior sound quality). It is included in this discography because it was released by Kustom Records, a label which produced  some interesting bootlegs.

RELEASES

This rare record had only one original pressing and one counterfeited version. The original version came in a soft sleeve printed in the UK, had yellow Kustom Records labels and the catalogue number ASC-003. The counterfeited version, probably produced by the same producers of KUM BACK by World’s Greatest Records, has a yellow cover. As typical of those copycats, the counterfeits came with the same matrix numbers.

INTEREST. A rare early record. ****
