Notes

2-LP set continues the excellent Beatleg series of studio out-takes and unreleased studio tracks, combines Vols 5 & 6...BUT...these volumes 5 & 6 do not match the Vols 5 & 6 issued separately, for some reason. Completely different track listings.
Very good to excellent audio.

Discs are not marked Disc 1/Disc 2, but "Side 1 of 2" and "Side 2 of 2" on both labels. Disc 1 is mis-labelled as Side 2 of 2 but is really side 1 of 1 and vice-versa for side 2.

Jacket has Swinging Pig logo and copyright statement. Labels are "Beeb Transcription Records" marbled background with blue print.
