RELEASES BY CBM
1. Early 1974 (photo below the title). Similarly to the other two early 1974 Cinelogues (A HARD DAYS'S NIGHT and HELP!), the record had an insert with a drawing by D'Anunzio printed with a blue to red "rainbow" effect, the jacket used had the J. Fish drawing printed on the back (usually the copies of HELP! had a normal white jacket ) and the labels were yellow Instant Analysis, with the first record with Side I / Side II indications, the second record without side indications.
Late 1974. A further pressing had the orange Instant Analysis labels, both with Side I / Side II indications, the jacket was yellow with the "Classics Of Jazz Radio" drawing by J. Fish printed on the back. A further release, possibly produced in 1976, had a white jacket, the first record had the orange Instant Analysis labels and the second record had the green Shalom labels. All these releases were pressed at the plant whose pressing mark is a ring at 7 mm from the central hole, and the vinyl is of good quality.
INTEREST. Interesting at the time, and a nice collector's item. ***
THE WIZARDO RECORDS RELEASE. In 1975 Wizardo Records made its own copy also for this title. However, it contains more material and therefore it will have its own entry.
