COMMENTS: US BOOTLEG IN A PLAIN WHITE COVER WITH A LARGE FOLD-OVER PAPER INSERT WITH A PF400 CATALOGUE NUMBER PRINTED ON IT ALTHOUGH THE MATRIX NUMBERS USED WERE DIFFERENT. PRESSED ON BLACK & MCV VINYL AND ISSUED ON A VARIETY OF LABELS. THANKS TO THE WORK OF RAY STEEG THE CORRECT ORDER AND VARIATIONS OF THE RELEASES IS SHOWN BELOW...

FIRST PRESSING: FIRST KNOWN VERSIONS (MATRIX NUMBER PINK I&II A/D) HAD 'DRAGONFLY RECORDS' & 'DUCK HITS' RECORD LABELS, FOLLOWED BY PLAIN WHITE OR BLACK LABELS, AND THEN A VARIETY OF OTHER LABELS. THESE VERSIONS (WITH THE 'PINK I & II MATRIX NUMBERS) WERE MISSING 'PIGS ON THE WING PART 2' ALTHOUGH IT WAS LISTED ON THE INSERT.

ALTERNATE PRESSING ONE: AROUND 1981 THERE WAS A PRESSING USING 'GLC' & BLUE TMOQ 'SMOKING PIG' LABELS. THESE HAD THE SAME LARGE INSERT AS THE FIRST PRESSING. THE SMALLER WHITE 'GROUP PHOTO' INSERT IS HOME MADE.

ALTERNATE PRESSING TWO: THIS USED THE SAME WHITE COVER AND LARGE INSERT (BLUE & WHITE) BUT WAS PRESSED WITH NEW PLATES (MATRIX NUMBER PF200 A/B/C/D) WHICH INCLUDED 'PIGS ON THE WING 2'. PRESSED INITIALLY ON BLACK VINYL WITH BLACK OR WHITE LABELS. A FURTHER 50 WERE PRESSED IN 1980 ON MULTICOLOUR VINYL WITH 'VERZYL' LABELS.

ALTERNATE PRESSING THREE: THIS PRESSING CAME WITH A WHITE COVER AND 'CARTOON' FULL COLOUR INSERT, WITH LABELS SHOWING A LIVE SHOT OF THE PIG AND A LIVE SHOW CROWD. THESE ARE PHOTOCOPIED COLOURED STICKERS STUCK OVER WHITE LABELS. THERE IS ONE THING HOWEVER, THAT MAKES THIS RELEASE UNIQUE, THE DISC MATRIXES ARE COMBINED DIFFERENTLY....
(DISC 1 - PF200 A/D)
(DISC 2 - PF200 B/C)

THE LAST PICTURE IS AN EXAMPLE OF A HOME MADE INSERT USING THE JAPANESE SIRENE CD RELEASE ARTWORK.
