COMMENTS

This record features a rare Capitol promo single, interesting only for John and Paul intros and outros to the usual version of the songs, to which a compilation of tracks taken from various previously released bootlegs was added. We indicate the first release of each of these tracks, but it is impossible to know which was the actual LP source used for SCRAPS, since most of these songs were reproduced in many other bootlegs. The release date was not determined with certainty, but it cannot precede July 1980, when ROUGH NOTES, from which I'll be on my way was taken, was distributed.

RELEASES

1. Late 1980 (photo below the title). The record was released in a black jacket in thick, minutely textured cardboard, with an insert with drawings of the Beatles on front and the track listing on a narrower folded part. The disc had red labels with titles and was pressed in blue vinyl. However, the blue color is only visible against the light, otherwise the vinyl looks normally black (see photo above, same record in different light conditions). Some records in true black vinyl may have been pressed as well. No repressings are known.

Detail of the cardboard jacket used for this record. An identical jacket was used for a counterfeited copy of a japanese bootleg with the Ed Sullivan shows, most likely produced by the same bootlegger. Both of these records can be dated to 1980-1981.

INTEREST. On a musical point of view, this record is not particularly attractive, since none of the songs were particularly rare in 1980, and the compilation could have been selected to have at least a better overall sound quality, other than some kind of uniformity in the choice of the tracks. As a collectible item, however, this is a very rare record, pressed in about 200 copies. Also quite curious is the blue color that can only be seen against the light. Copies in black vinyl (if existing) would be of course less interesting. ****/***
