Producer: Swinging Pig Records
Vinyl: Red

Repressed or copied on the following releases:
AND THE BAND PLAYED - Swinging Pig Records Swingin' pig 2nd press (LP)

For many years I (and othe sources) talked about three version of this record: the TSP051 version, the 3070 version, and the 3676 version, with the codes referring to the record matrix. They are actually only two version : infact the original has 3674 matrix on the spine, but the number is written very badly on the run-off vinyl area, and has been interpreted as 3070, 3676, 3674, or others. Also the b/w or colour cover has been a little misleading. The cover is monochrome but not b/w, infact it is more blue and white than black and white. It was pressed on transparent red vinyl. Swingin' pig records labels even if Swingin' Pig name doesn't appear. Deluxe laminated cover with monochrome photo and red writings on. A scratched number appear near the '3674' in dead vax area.
Also pressed in m/c (classic m/c or even 'splash black and white') vinyl.
