1. Late spring, 1971 (photo below the title). Reportedly, this is the only record pressed by the company Michael & Allyson. The first pressing came with an insert in full size, printed in blue, with a collage of Beatles pictures from the January 1969 sessions and track listings. The record had white-greyish labels with track listings, numbered MA-1 and MA-2 for the two sides. The record was pressed at the Rainbo plant in Los Angeles.
2. 1973. The original mothers were used for new stampers created on January 25, 1973 and again on July 23, 1973. The records had the same insert, and the labels were generic labels with 1 / 2 side available at the Rainbo plants at the time, or blank white.
3. 1976. The original mothers were stored at the plant and in 1976 they were used by the Wizardo group under their "400 Series" as K.O. Records. The catalogue number of this release was K.O. 407 (this number was also written on the sleeve of the mother for side 2, see photo above). The mothers, and so the stampers and the discs that were derived from them, had the words MORE GET BACK carved below the original matrix numbers on both sides. The records were pressed at the Lewis plants (1 mm wide deep ring at 31 mm from the hole), and were distributed with the same insert used for the previous pressings, with the K.O. Records label or with blank labels and insert in reduced size.
4. 1979-1980. The last appearance of this title, from the original masters and the stampers used for version #3, appeared with a b/w sleeve reproducing the original, with "Collector's Edition - Colored vinylite" added above and near the title. The record was released on colored vinyl, without any label.
INTEREST. The first pressing is extremely interesting since not only it represents the first release of tracks from the "Let It Be" movie, but is also a quite rare early bootleg (****). The reissues are obviously less interesting (**).
THE TMOQ-SMOKIN' PIG COUNTERFEIT
Mid-late seventies. The company TMOQ-Smokin' Pig conterfeited the original record in the mid seventies, using the same insert, printed in colored paper (yellow and light green was seen), matrix 1893 A / 1893 B, colored labels with the TMOQ-Smokin' Pig logo.
Early-eighties. This record had a reissue with a new insert, partly folded on the back with some notes on these tracks. It was released with colored TMOQ-Smokin' pig labels. Side A was pressed from the same master 1893 A, with this number scratched out and TMQ 71068 added, whereas the master or mother for side B was not available and a new master was cut, numbered 1893-B.
INTEREST. Not a particularly remarkable release **/*.
MORE GET BACK SESSIONS was copied in 1973 by TMOQ as GET BACK SESSIONS 2 / VIRGIN PLUS THREE. This issue will have its own entry.
It was also squeezed together with THE GET BACK SESSION in a record by Idle Mind Productions (here).
