SQ: GOOD MONO

COMMENTS: US BOOTLEG. SOME COPIES (REPORTEDLY) ALSO RUBBER STAMPED 'LIVE IN SANTA MONICA CALIFORNIA 1970' - IF THESE EXIST THEY ARE EXTREMELY RARE. OFTEN REFERRED TO AS 'CYMBALINE' - THE EARLIEST REFERENCE TO THIS TITLE BEING USED IS IN A MID 1973 BOOTLEG CATALOGUE SEEMINGLY PRODUCED BY TMOQ 2 - THE LAST COVER SHOWN ABOVE HAS 'CYMBALINE' STAMPED ABOVE THE INSERT, HOWEVER IT IS NOT CERTAIN THAT THIS IS ORIGINAL TO THE DISC . RELEASED ON VARIOUS COLOURED VINYL WITH BOTH LARGE 1,2,3,4 LABELS AND ALSO WITH FARM PIG LOGO ON LABEL (VERY FEW PRESSINGS EXIST WITH THE REGULAR STAMPED (PINK FLOYD "LIVE") AND STICKERED TMOQ FARM PIG COVER). ALSO RELEASED WITH SMOKIN' PIG LOGO ON LABEL USING THE SAME PAPER INSERT AND MATRIX NUMBER (ON BLACK AND COLOURED VINYL). CURIOUSLY, THIS ALBUM IS NOT LISTED IN THE 'OFFICIAL' TMOQ CATALOGUE. THE '2804' PLATES WERE USED FOR ANOTHER RELEASE, THIS TIME CALLED 'CYMBALINE' ON 'GLC 2804' AND RE-ISSUED YET AGAIN ON 'LXXIV SERIES #16'.

FURTHER COMMENTS: AS STATED ABOVE, THIS TITLE WAS NOT LISTED IN THE 'OFFICIAL' TMOQ CATALOGUE WHICH WAS IN FACT PRODUCED SOLELY BY 'DUB' AFTER THE SPLIT, SO IT IS REASONABLE TO ASSUME THAT THIS ALBUM IS POSSIBLY THE WORK OF KEN DOUGLAS ON HIS OWN.

RARITY RATING: (ALL ISSUES)

YEAR OF RELEASE: 1973

SOURCE: CIVIC AUDITORIUM SANTA MONICA LOS ANGELES 23-10-1970.
