COMMENTARY

These 2 LPs come from the same source tape as YELLOW MATTER CUSTARD and feature the songs left off of that album. While that LP focused on completely unreleased numbers (except for "Slow Down"), this series features alternate BBC versions (from "Pop Go The Beatles") of songs legitimately released on their albums, plus The Hippy Hippy Shake and Lucille, which were both unavailable elsewhere at the time. Most of these tracks resurfaced in the 1980's on THE BEATLES AT THE BEEB bootleg series in better sound quality, with the exception of: vol. 1, tracks 3, 4, 5, 6, 9 and vol. 2, tracks 4, 5. Track 10 of vol. 2 had previously appeared in complete form on YELLOW MATTER CUSTARD.

RELEASES

The metal masters are dated respectively June 10 (OUTAKES 1) and June 8 (OUTAKES 2), 1972. However, the  archive copies of two records, part of the first batch of pressings, were dated on the sleeve June 6, 1972.

1. June, 1972 (photo below the title). The first issue featured rubber-stamped titles on color cardboard sleeves, colored vinyl, and a white label with side numbers and double black ring. The first copies are: OUTAKES 1: Turquoise jacket, green pig sticker, green vinyl. OUTAKES 2: Green jacket, red pig sticker, red vinyl.

2. Summer 1972. Some copies had a further rubber stamp "PROMOTION NOT FOR SALE" on the four corners.

3. late 1972. Inserts were soon added to the release.

4. Spring, 1973. With inserts renumbered respectively TMQ 71048 (OUTAKES 1) and TMQ 71049 (OUTAKES 2), these came with round or square stickers, white labels with a black pig or black or colored labels with a silver pig and colored vinyl.

5. 1974 / 1975. Same jacket as above, with a round sticker, white label with pig, black vinyl.

6. 1976 / 1977. Insert cover with reworked artwork, renumbered respectively BO-519 (OUTAKES 1) and BO-520; (OUTAKES 2), black vinyl and white label with pig. 

1978. A further reissue had Ruthless Rhymes or blank labels.

1978 / 1979. Some copies were pressed in multicolored vinyl, with no label.

THE 2-LP SET

 

Starting in early 1973 the two records were also distributed together in the same jacket with both rubber stamps. A specific new insert was produced, renumbered D-207.

1974/1975. Same as above, black vinyl. Some copies had the two original inserts rather than the new one.

1978. Ruthless Rhymes edition, with insert renumbered TMQ 1508.

INTEREST. Historically, these are very important releases. All TMOQ records, even if they're quite common, retain a high collectible value, obviously higher for the first pressings and the colored vinyl (****/***). The copies with the additional rubber stamp "PROMOTION NOT FOR SALE" are extremely scarce (*****). The later copies by Ruthless Rhymes have little interest. *

 

THE CBM RELEASES

The two TMOQ albums were copied by CBM as STUDIO SESSIONS VOL 1 (matrix WEC 3640-A / WEC 3640-B ) and STUDIO SESSIONS VOL. 2 (WEC 3641-A / WEC 3641-B). Vol. 1 has track 1 placed after track 6.

1. May, 1973. Vol. 1: This had a red insert, glued to a yellow or white cardboard jacket. Vol. 2: orange insert again on yellow or white jacket; label with title, side indications and "disc" logo.

2. August, 1973. Same cover, blank colored labels, or white labels with a 1" colored bar; some copies (late August) had a folder-type sleeve.

3. October, 1973. Light blue generic label

4. 1974. Same covers, white label with red pirate (January); blank label, J. Fish printed back cover, disc on brown inner sleeve (February); yellow label with pirate, J. Fish printed back cover (spring-summer).

5. 1975. An extra-cheap version. This one had a new insert with the King Kong logo, titled STUDIO SESSIONS ONE and STUDIO SESSIONS TWO. It didn't even have its own sleeve but was pasted over a legit LP cover. The labels were blank.

6. early 1976. Red label with pirate, same inserts as # 1.

THE 2-LP SETS

 

1. Summer, 1976. The branch of CBM that continued to use the original plant where the 1972 pressings were produced  released their records under the Godzilla label and realized their own version, joining the two records in a 2-LP set titled DECCA AUDITION OUTAKES - SUPER STUDIO SERIES VOL. 2, with big Godzilla label. This had the same matrix as the other CBM releases, but the pressing and vinyl are in better quality.

2. 1977. A repressing had a new insert, whose drawing is dated (19)77, and on the back cover it featured the title rubber-stamped. The records had the red label with big Godzilla, but both LPs were with Side A / Side B indications (that is, no Side C / Side D).

3. 1977. Same as #1, with the DECCA AUDITION OUTAKES insert only on a black jacket with thick cardboard, new stampers numbered 3640-A2/ 3640-B2 and 3641-A2 / 3641-B2. The records had respectively blank black / blank red (disc 1) and both blank black labels (disc 2).

INTEREST. The first pressing is of course an important record for collectors (***), the various reissues have little interest (**/*), except the 2-LP set with the rubber-stamped cover - that is very rare (***).

THE WCF  COUNTERFEITS

Summer, 1974. The WCF group counterfeited the two CBM records from masters numbered 3640-A / 3640-B x and 3641-A / 3641-B x, in their typical folder-type cover with a copy of the CBM insert printed on front and another picture printed on the back, orange blank label was seen, as usual this was a label of another record glued on reverse.

INTEREST. Only for completists. *

THE JAPANESE COUNTERFEITS

A Japanese release came out in the early eighties, produced by the ZAP company, with machine-inscribed matrix numbers ZAP 1061 A 11I+ / ZAP 1061 B 11I+ and ZAP 1062 A 11I+ / ZAP 1062 B 11I+. They had black labels with title and track listing.

INTEREST. Mainly interesting for those who collect Japanese pressings, or for completists. **
