This much sought-after rarity is mispressed - Side 1 of the record is actually Side 1 of an album by The Buckinghams called Made In Chicago (Columbia PC 33335). The scans are standard for the first pressing of the album. The rear sleeve is the first design with the text in black, and it has the original inner sleeve. The record itself has red labels with 'COLUMBIA' in yellow round the circumference, and stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - PAL-33335-1B (the correct matrix number of the Buckingham's album), Side 2 - PBL 33235-2AB (the correct matrix number for Side 2 of Blood On The Tracks). Apparently there are 216 of these mispressed records in existence, the matrix number on Side 1 is the only way of identifying it as the mispressing.

The Buckinghams were a rock band from Chicago who had a No. 1 single in the USA in 1967 with Kind Of A Drag. They had other US hits in the 1960s and Made In Chicago from 1975 was a "greatest hits" compilation. It was released on CD by Arcadia Records in 2001 and is still available.

There is a "Rolling Stone" article from 27 Feb 1975 telling the story of a Madison, Wisconsin disc jockey who "had his mind blown when he slapped his brand-new copy of Bob Dylan's Blood On The Tracks on the station's turntable and out came... the Buckinghams singing Hey Baby (They're Playing Our Song)"!
