In the early 70's the TMOQ Great White wonder was copied by a label called 'Rocolian'.  They used various combinations of the TMOQ matrix number not only as their matrix, but by logical extension, their reference or catalog number.  The relationship between POPO, TMOQ, CBM, and Rocolian is not quite clear; but, at least in the beginning, there were ties of some  type.

Just as with the other labels, Rocolian released several variations of this album. 
The cover was a blank white or eggshell gatefold.  Some issues were stamped in the TMOQ style, some in small print in the upper right corner.  Some have a small 'flower girl' stamp.  Some labels were blank, but most were the standard Rocolian label.  (this label has fake song titles with the heading "Dupre and his miracle sound"). It has long been rumored that disc two was released as a single called 'Approximately'. It has now been established that there was, in fact, such a release. Only a handful of these rarities were created.

Information: © 1999 Craig Pinkerton
In 1970 some friends got together and decided to create what would become the most famous bootleg record label of all time.  ... Trademark of Quality.  ... also known as TMQ, TMOQ, TMOQ-1, and later as TMOQ-2. Their first release was this now famous " rubber-stamp" cover 'GWW'. The stamp was done by hand, and was therefore inconsistent. Some copies have letters that are complete; while others are barely visible. The stamps were generally in the upper right corner, but at times drift down to the center. Some are straight, while others are on an angle. View a mega-rare autographed copy of this LP here. Some LPs also included an insert inside the jacket. The insert had four photos, the newly conceived pig logo , and a reference #D 101 (most probably 'D'  for Dylan and 101 from the matrix number of the European issue).  This LP was a very good press and the quality was nearly as good as the original.  The LP sides were in a different order from the original as shown at left.  This LP is identified, as per Roques, as  gwa 1Ba. © 1999 Craig Pinkerton
Originally, side 3 had no matrix number.  Subsequent pressings corrected this error. © 1999 Craig Pinkerton Bobsboots.comLike many of the original bootlegs, there were several issues of this album.  Presses and represses.  Each had slight variations; and combinations of disks, jackets, and inserts from various pressings would be combined both  by the manufacturer and by the retailer to create an endless number of variations.  It would be most difficult, if not impossible, to actually retrace the exact release in the exact order it occurred.

It is known that there were several colors of jackets including white, green, yellow, peach, and purple. 
There were several colors and combinations of colors of vinyl including black and the following clear colors: blue, green, red, yellow, and possibly others. 
Variations of labels include blank white, blank light colored, original pig, etc. 
There were also a few different colors of inserts, and slight variations in the information.  One such variation is the 'POPO production' insert. POPO was closely associated with, if not intertwined with the newly formed

In 1973 TMQ issued some of their titles in a generic cartoon cover. While not known to be issued with the cover, the series labels are to be found on a 1973 edition of this LP. Therefore, it is considered to be the first issue.

In the mid 70's a new style insert was used with a "live in concert 1974" photo (gwa 1Bb). To compound the confusion, it was at this time that a personnel change occurred at TMQ.  The new group, commonly referred to as TMOQ-2, not only created new packages, but also repackaged various combinations of the material from the original company.

I don't use Postage to make money.I try and weigh the parcels before I list the items and add packing cost to the postage cost.Sometimes I can't weigh 1st(Usually if I have to make a home-made parcel for odd sized items)and if I do that,I will make my best educated guess of the postage cost,but I don't often pack home made parcels before the bidding ends,because many people want to ask questions,so sometimes,I could be a little out.I do pack in secure parcels.


 Ways To Pay:





Cheque,Postal Order,Cash On Collection.Postage cost will not be needed for collection,package will be charged for only if you need it,which you should not need if you collect yourself.Paypal is available as I have to offer it,although I personally would rather avoid it,I have to allow it.I despatch very quickly so don't worry,you'll soon get your goods if you are quick to pay.

Europe & Worldwide:

PAYPAL.Sorry I am not allowed to offer International Money orders any more,I like them,but Ebay don't.



Although you are not obliged to leave feedback,I hope you do.If you get a record and are happy,please leave feedback so I know it has arrived,and that you are happy,then I can leave yours and erase the sale from my Email and Ebay page.If you are not happy,please ask for a refund.Many buyers don't leave feedback and it annoys me,so,If after a long time I get no feedback,I will leave your positive feedback assuming that you payed,then I will add you to my blocked bidder list.Harsh maybe,but Feedback is how Ebay works,I see no need to be so lazy,it is only good manners.



U.K: I prefere a Cheque or Postal order,or Cash on collection.Paypal is available,but I don't like it,although I have to offer it,and I won't hold it against you if you do use it. Rest Of World: Paypal.If you have any other suggestions,I am open hearing them BEFORE you bid.
