Track A1 is an original radio advertisement for the concert (not listed on the cover).

Recorded on January 10th, 1978 - NOT 1977 as the cover states.

This is the first, UK pressing of the record, with the cover printed on a piece of paper and glued to a generic white sleeve. The second, US pressing, had a red cover. The UK pressing will have the cover shown here and say "Printed in England" on the side.

There is a discrepancy regarding the disc labels. Some versions of the release may come with Ruthless Rhymes labels, while others (like the one pictured here) might have Slipped Disc Records labels.

All the SP2800 (Welcome to the Rodeo) and SP2900 (Gun Control) are AMERICAN pressings. Most of the copies have been pressed with Ruthless Rhymes labels, black & white, black & grey and black & yellow ones (all looking the same with the dog and the gun), there are also Slipped Disc labels, Dragonfly labels, Full Tilt labels, plain white, plain cream, yellow labels available. You can find the same pressings with the black & white "Stevenson" labels (pictures taken from Ray Stevenson's book called "Sex Pistols File" which are available in the boxset with the same name, and also sold individually). They are not German or British pressings at all. It's always the same old game with bootleggers, they make people think a record is a UK release when it is made in Japan for exemple, etc. On the Rhuthless Rhymes labels, there is something that says it is made in Germany and the original insert has "made in England" what a joke. You just have to look at the matrix numbers to be sure they are exactly the same as the Slipped Disc labels which are printed in french and claim they are made in Monaco. Most of the time, people believe that they are German or British LPs, they are ALL US pressings and they are not rare at all. I have several copies of each, with different labels, and they all have the same handwritten matrix numbers and they look exactly the same, so they come from the same pressing plants etc.

Something is very wrong here, I have a copy released on "Slipped Disc" records Which must be the original.
