COMMENTARY

This album features the first appearance of the complete Stockholm performance, recorded for "Pop '63'' radio programme in front of an audience. The matrix of side A has some letters scratched between WEC and 3595; they are very difficult to read, though it may possibly be ITTRI again as in SUNDAY NIGHT AT THE LONDON PALLADIUM. The show was later reissued in excellent sound quality on SILVER DAYS and excellent quality on LP and CD on STARS OF '63. The Washington concert reappeared in (almost) complete form on LIVE IN WASHINGTON.

RELEASES

1 July 1973 (photo below the title). The first release was distributed with an orange insert. The disc had yellow labels with the CBM logo, red printed title and track index. This title appears to have had less repressings than most of the other CBM releases.

2. August-September 1973. Same insert and labels, but the record came into a folder-type jacket.

3. Early 1974. No different releases are known for late 1973. In early 1974 the records had the same orange insert, were released on white blank labels, and the inner sleeve was typically in brown paper.

Mid 1974 to 1975. Throughout the remaining part of 1974 and 1975 the records were released with a white blank label, and thenormal white inner sleeve. Copies with the label with the pirate logo have been reported as well, but we did not see any.

1976. A reissue with the King Kong logo, titled SWEDEN-WASHINGTON-SWEDEN, released with the red King Kong label was reported in the Matsumoto Beatles' Bootlegs book (version not seen by us).

INTEREST. The first pressing, including a brand new concert in very good quality, is historically very important and relatively common (***); the few reissues have much less collectible value (**).

Side A was repressed in the compilation LIVE HOLLAND-SWEDEN - SUPER LIVE CONCERT SERIES 1 released in 1976.

THE JAPANESE JL COUNTERFEIT

The japanese company JL Records released their counterfeit in 1975, with the photo of the original insert directly printed on the jacket, in a slightly more reddish color, and the catalogue number JL 525 printed on bottom right, and white blank labels. Matrix number of this record is JL 525 A / JL 525 B.

INTEREST. Mainly interesting for the japanese market and completists (**).
