Front Cover
One of the rarest issues of the famous 'Great White Wonder' LP came out in this cover. There are a score of releases of this most famous bootleg of all time, but the ones released in 1969 or 1970 as 'Great White Father' are a rarity indeed. This picture is one of the only confirmed copies know to still exist. As with all of the early releases, the labels are blank white. Pressed from unique master plates.
