The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Vpro Session, Sept '94 [Bootleg] [No Label #2] (10", NETHERLANDS) - Variation 1
VIEW:
NOTES:
Alternate pressing and variations of the sleeve for the Vpro Session bootleg, provisionally titled ‘No Label #2’ for the purposes of this website.

This version does not identify a record label and has Side A as the White Label and Side B as the Black Label which is, in theory, the reverse of “Devils Blues” / Cock Rock Music, the No Label #1 and Crap Rap Records (but the sleeves and labels do not always match up ie. sleeve states Side A: White Label / Record is actually Side A: Black Label).

There were Devils Blues/Cock Rock Music, Crap-Rap and an unlabelled version of this record.

Live recording from VPRO radio in the Netherlands, recorded 25 September ’94.

The cover photo by Ali Smith appeared in issue one of BB Gun and looks as though it was been taken directly from a copy of that magazine. On close inspection the distinctive cross-hatch lines making up the image are still there but lack all detail/clarity whereas the image in the magazine is very defined. The bootleg would appear to be a second-generation copy of that printing style and not from an original photograph.

The cover photo also appears in the booklet with the Japanese edition of Extra Width (but at a much higher resolution and using a different printing method).

The Intro track on this record is edited together in the same way as Tour Diary on Experimental Remixes. At least two segements appear on both releases; Jon Spencer singing “V, P, R, O!” and the interviewer asks “What kind of music is this?”.

Track A4 Chickenwalk is Mo’ Chicken/Let’s Get Funky from Crypt Style.

Track B5 is listed on the cover as Corfewblues but it’s supposed to be Curfew Blues which Jon Spencer says “is a song we ripped off of Earl King”. According to then inlay of Jukebox Explosion Rockin’ Mid-90’s Punkers this track was due to be released as a B-Side Caroline which was due to be the original third installment of the Jukebox singles series.

Although this is probably not true as this was recorded in September 1994 and Train #3 (third installment of the Jukebox Series) was released in 1993.
