Are you saying this share is the mono LP reissue with that exact matrix number?

If so, it'd be interesting to compare it to the original, as I haven't actually heard it.

Thanks for sharing, could you please explain what this matrix number is about, Bob?

Many of the old LP bootlegs have matrix numbers, the same way many products have a serial number. It's just a unique identifier. It's especially helpful when bootlegs are reissued with the same name, so you can tell one from the other.

Thanks for clearing this, this transfer sounds a little better than the source that has been shared here before I think, very nice early recording...

Indeed, this is better than my copy. It has a bit more tape hiss, but it sounds richer.

So now I'm curious to hear how the original LP sounds. I always thought my CDR was a transfer from it, but clearly not. It's probably a copy of the CD bootleg from the 90s.

Does anyone have the original LP ??

I'm not sure which lp you're asking about, Bob. I know I've got the original Wizardo LP (WRMB 307) but not the TAKRL reissue.

Yes, that's the one I'm searching for !

Have a look here:

If you could do a transfer to digital and share the WAV/FLAC here, that would be fantastic.

The jap boot cd is easy to recognise because in jailhouse rock the lp needle got stuck during the transfer, so it repeats some bits. As for this boot hunt down the first release! The dutch repro's all feat worsen sound!

Ah yes, I remember that !

The laziness of most bootleg labels summarized into a single song.

I've got the first Re-release of the pink/red one (TAKRL 1377-RS)

It's pretty damn good, from memory. I believe there's no back image, but a former owner has pasted (I think) a picture of Freddie to the back card.

That's standard for these bootlegs - just a piece of paper glued on.

Any chance you could upload a transfer of your LP ?

Slithybill, you too .. !?

The more the merrier.

Yep, that's the one I've got. I was a kid when I bought it and played the hell out of it so I hope it's not too scratched up. I should be able to transfer it this weekend.

Brilliant. Looking forward to it.

That said - if the transfer doesn't turn out too well, there are tried and tested ways to fix scratched records.
