Front Cover
In 1970, the U.S. Label 'Contraband' ... also known as 'CBM' ; released what is possibly the first bootleg to have a printed cover   (gwa 1Ad).  It is a glue-on insert with a 1965 Daniel Kramer photo along with the song titles.  It was pressed on black vinyl with yellow CBM labels.  There was also a version released that had a picture of King Kong on one label, and a dragon on the other.  Unfortunately, all of these copies of the original gwa 1Aa are very poor quality. 

Sides 1 & 3: All 'Minnesota Hotel tape' material (Minneapolis, Dec. '61) except: 
Interview from Broadside show 3-62 
Side 4: All Basement tape material except:
