Interesting album

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, cool forum!  I found this album and I can't find any info on it?  What's up with the spelling?

It's another repackaging of the old TMOQ bootleg of the April 1, 1971 Paris Theatre BBC Concert. This particular album came out in 1975 on Berkeley Records.

It's obviously not the complete concert, which has come out officially on the BBC Sessions.

Welcome to the board! I used to have one of those decades ago. An interesting sort of rarity with the misspelling. Never thought I would see a picture of it again.

Hi Zep Head, thanks!  Cool Strider, I wonder what's up with the spelling?

Sloppy proofreading. Many bootleg labels employed people who weren't exactly wordsmiths...and whose primary language may not have even been English.

Bootleg companies intentionally misspelled things so that the major record labels would think they were homemade records and not professional fakes.

The BBC sessions were probably the most bootlegged due to their pro quality. These boots probably didn’t sell that well in the UK as we all taped them ourselves from the radio. I actually have an official BBC Transcription Services album of the Paris Theatre gig that was used for broadcast on R1 in the 70’s and 80’s.
