Wizardo Records ‎– WRMB 339
Vinyl, LP, Album, Unofficial Release, Red Marbled


Released in generic white card sleeve with orange photocopy inlay sheet trapped in shrinkwrap. 1st Pressing on 'red translucent' splatter-marbled vinyl. Blue WIZARDO Label A-side, Orange WIZARDO Label B-side. Dutch flavor to text: "Wizardo Rekords" "Made in Holland" (This used as country of issue - but questionable) The insert sheet is to American paper-size standard: 216 x 279mm.

Inlay states "Live at The Roxy L.A. - July 16, 1975" - Musicians are incorrectly credited (without instruments) under the heading "The Magic Band" - "Abba Zaba" is incorrectly titled as "Abba Zabba" (A2 shown corrected)

NB. It should be noted that the 'majority of information' on the Inlay is incorrect. The album was in fact recorded over 2 dates -The 3rd + 5th January 1973 at The Troubadour, West Hollywood, Cal. (Not LA Roxy, 1975) Also the Band's line-up is incorrectly documented.

The correct band line-up should read -
Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) Vocals, Harmonica; Alex St Claire (Snouffer) Guitar, Slide Guitar; Bill Harkleroad (Zoot Horn Rollo) Lead Guitar, Slide Guitar; Mark Boston (Rockette Morton) Guitar, Bass Guitar; Roy Estrada (Audi Hon-Orejon) Bass Guitar; Art Tripp (Ed Marimba) Drums, Percussion;

A well-known Vliet quote appears at the foot of cover; "There are only five great men in the world and three of them are hamburgers".
