COMMENTS

Some new items here: at last we have the complete uncut version of Have you heard the word, and its flip-side Futting around too! (no Beatles involvement). More interesting is the David Frost TV show, previously unreleased, unfortunately in rather low sound quality. The other tracks were lifted from previously released records.

RELEASES.

1. Summer 1975 (photo below the title). The first pressing had a square insert, almost full size, with track listing on the right and  the WRMB number on bottom right. The disc had the dark blue generic Wizardo labels.

1976. The second version appeared in early 1976, it had the same insert, printed in reduced size, and the disc had the light blue generic Wizardo labels. Both pressings were made at the Rainbo plant.

No records were pressed at the Lewis plant and no releases under different titles were made.

INTEREST. Surely not a remarkable Wizardo release, even though the appearance of the David Frost show was surely appreciated at the time. **/*
