VIEW:
NOTES:
Black vinyl (with the large juke-box style hole) in wrap-around sleeve with white paper die-cut inner sleeve. This would appear to have been re-pressed on more than one occasion.

This is a bootleg release consisiting of three tracks taken from the Exile On Main St. recordings. In the classic bootleg style the artist and song titles on the label are intentionally incorrect.

Cover uses part of the original artwork by Rick Hall

Labels also read “All Songs (p) & © 1988 Galore Songs” which is probably made-up to make the product seem genuine at the pressing plant. *This would possibly indicate that the record was issued in 1988 but as it was reviewed in the October / November 1989 issue of Bob Magazine suggesting it may have been released much later.

the ‘(p) & © 1988 Galore Songs’ is probably made-up to make the product seem genuine at the pressing plant.

In comparison to the credits given on the cassette release it features the following errors:

– Sleeve states that the songs were ‘Recorded in New York, In 1987’ when they were actually recorded ‘NYC. Aug 24-26, ’86.’

– Sleeve notes refer to ‘Exile on Main Street’ when the title is only ever written as ‘Exile On Main St.’…sometimes without the full stop but never with ‘Street’ as a whole word. A minor but important detail.

– Jon Spencer is spelt ‘John Spencer’

– Apparently Neil Hagerty plays ‘Giutar’.

– Cristina is spelt ‘Christina’.

– The sleeve states “(p) & © 88 Galore Tunes”

SLEEVE NOTES:
“PUSSY GALORE KILLS THE STONES

Before he became a terminal idiot Joe Strummer sang that there would be no more Elvis, Beatles or Rolling Stones in 1977. He was ten years too early to say this.

The Stones did not fully die until Pussy Galore played a version of the one Stones set that punks said they like in a true punk fashion?
Listen to these songs from the Exile On Main Street cassette and we’re sure you will agree!
