Yes, it’s yet another version of the Cowtown Ballroom show from 1974. This one claims to be 180g virgin vinyl and is “Manufactured in Europe”. The label – DOL – is a trademark of Vinylogy which is a Russian company –

I find this release rather endearing in that it seems to be a throwback to those classic bootlegs of the 1980s. It has a glossy cover with some great photos although they represent Magic Bands that have nothing to do with this recording plus the running order of the show has been inexplicably rearranged (probably to get it to fit easily on the two sides of vinyl) and Crazy Little Thing has become plural.

See my review for the original bootleg release of this show – Crazy Little Things


It also looks as if a CD version of this has been released at the same time. The back cover of the vinyl album has been colourised and used for the front but the title and the font are identical, the letters “CBC – FM” are also printed on both front covers.
