  • Label: Planet Rock Records / P.R. Records Detroit 1984
  • Catalogue#: 601, Pink.Inc.1
  • Format: 12" vinyl LP
  • Released: 1986


  • Due to repetitive up- and downturns of the volume in general and of Andrew's voice in particular
the sound quality of this bootleg is rated 6.5/10 .
  • Black vinyl with printed b/w labels giving information on the tracks.
  • There is no mention of the bootleg title on the labels.
The record is titled "York Racecourse", rather.
  • Track B5 is spelled wrongly "Gimmie Shelter".
  • The back cover states:

Plain "preliminary" cover

A sort of pre-issue item has also surfaced in an online auction.

It came in a plain white "preliminary" sleeve and stated only the bootleg title,

Since we do not have a picture of the actual vinyl, doubts remain whether

this was not just a cover got lost under circumstances uncleared ...

Recording Source

  • During the actual concert, the intro to Alice was started twice. Craig Adams' bass quit on first attempt, so the band started again. This incident is excluded from the record.
