Review by: Chris Johnson, moptop@altavista.netOn 8 Jun 1999
Tracks run to fast refer to other sources on either Yellow Dog or Vigotone labels.
Review by: Fred Meade, FREDRMEADE@aol.comOn 28 Jul 1999
Rating based on time of release. My first vinyl boot found in Jan '70. A bit fast and hard to go back to after hearing CD's from Yellow Dog and others. Did give me ability to impress my senior class friends playing Let it Be and Long and Winding Road on piano, telling them i new people at Apple, and amazing them once it was released! - Until I fessed up at a reunion years later...
Review by: Pasadena,On 24 Feb 2000
I love this album! It was also the first beatle boot that I ever picked up and after that I was hooked! love the versions of let it be and winding road without the strings and the version of dig a pony is one of my all time favorites because of paul clowning in the backround and making john crack up during the last verse. the quality is excellent and I likewise was able to impress a lot of my friends with this album. I consider it a must-have for any true beatle collector.

Unfortunately, my original LP of KUM BACK is in average condition, but I too consider this to be a prized possesion. The sound quality on vinyl is pretty poor, but the versions of these songs, especially Let it Be and Long and Winding Road are fantastic.
I am looking for a better copy. Thanks.

Well, it's... historic. The quality could be better, but whoever came up with the idea to release a Beatles bootleg must have been pretty adventurous. He/she certainly started a trend, too.
Review by: MrRom92On 18 Aug 2007 at 18:01 CEST
i have the vinyl, and it was also my first boot. its historic and fun but the quality isnt that great. i overlook this tho. i listen to it because it IS kum back, if i really want to hear the material that makes this bootleg up, i would just hear A/B road.

my lp is in great condition, other than the fact that get back is totally scratched out as if it was purposefully done! why would someone do this?

The Beatles legendary Kum Back bootleg.

The sources noted are quite correct and accurate.

While most of the sources and tracks have been released in much better sound fidelity in recent years, at the time this was released it was cutting edge.

It was pressed from tracks culled from the Glyn Johns mix of Let It Be in early March.

As noted, this was pressed from a tape of the WBCN-WKBW radio broadcast in Sept. 1969.

Unconfirmed sources indicate that this reference disc played by the radio stations was an acetate from John Lennon, traded for the bootleg Beatles Live in Sweden.

Lennon was collecting bootlegs at the time, and all indications are that he traded this for a copy of Beatles Live in Sweden, and it was in turn taken to WKBW radio in Buffalo and aired.

The tape then made it's way to WBCN in Boston and was aired there.

However this information may be a bit inaccurate because Kum Back is usually credited as one of the first, if not the first, Beatles bootleg.

If that story is correct, then Beatles Live in Sweden predates Kum Back.

Lennon was interviewed in Rolling Stone magazine in 1970, and he mentions that he has a copy of Beatles in Sweden and was collecting bootlegs.

If the story about trading this acetate is correct, he probably traded it when he played with the Plastic Ono Band in Toronto for the Rock and Roll Revival Festival (Sept. 1969).

In any event, Kum Back was released in late 1969, early 1970 and was most certainly one of the earliest Beatles bootlegs, following closely on the heels of Dylan's Great White Wonder and the Stones Live'R Than You'll Ever Be.

Usually found in a simple white blank cardboard cover with the title Kum Back rubber stamped on it.

The actually sound fidelity is quite good for an early bootleg, not quite up to today's standards, however quite listenable and nice.

In my opinion, this and Beatles in Sweden are probably the first two Beatles bootlegs, however I stand to be corrected on that.

My original copy was obtained way back in 1972, and was a thick black disc pressed without any markings on blank labels other than side 1 and side 2.

Great stuff here, and historically very significant.

Is now quite rare to find an original copy and highly collectable.

RIP: Winston O'Boogey and Mr. Harrisong.
