Catalogue No. STATB 01
Country of origin England
Release date 1863
Total time 76:23
Comments: Not essential, but a very nice to have collection of duet recordings by John, Paul, George and Ringo with a variety of friends from 1970 onwards.
All songs have been officially released except track 17, which is live.

Another nice touch from the bootleggers, is an "interesting" sleeve, with a tinge of humour. The main logo says "Stamp Out The Beatles", and elsewhere there are references to "piggies", "rutles" and ... well, you buy it, and enjoy the subtleties of the sleeve for yourself !

... and yes, the sleeve does date this recording as being 1863 !
