I have to repeat the previous comentar, this album is not a re-release of the live bootleg with the album title "Dire Wolf". Rather, this "Dire Wolf" is a re-release of the studio album "Workingman's Dad" from 1970, however, the song Cumberland Blues is missing and also the tracklist was changed to the original LP so Blackpeter was moved from the B side to the A side and with the title Dire Wolf, which is now on B2.
Furthermore, I think the only cover and insert label in West Germany (Federal Republic) were printed that if the record also in Germany would be pressed must contain the GEMA sign, the record contains however the SUISSA sign which suggests that the royalties In or to a Swiss organization for the protection of copyrights.
In the case of Platinum albums, this is often the case with the label published in the middle of the 1980s, which is either "Best Of Albums" or republishing of original albums but under other album names and with other covers, as in this case On the cover a photo of the band from a concert which was broadcast in the TV broadcast Rockpalast.
The album has thus not at all with that of "wiffles" to do so only because it possesses the same album name, the photos which are attached as well as the LP which is in my own is only the above Komentar is in my opinion out of place And released the LP probably not and certainly never heard otherwise he would be the first completely different songs are contained and secondly that it is about studio recordings and not about live recordings.
