LPs

  • 1976 - Rough Trade Live! (Umbrella UMB-DD1) [Canada]
    The first rock album to be recorded live Direct-to-Disc. Also released as:
    • (Umbrella UMB-DD1) [West Germany]
    • (Big Time) [UK]

    Of the Canadian version, at least four different jackets and two different pressings exist:

    1. The original release is numbered 00001 through 12999 and is packaged in a dull silver gatefold cover with a rectangular cut-out on the front. It was manufactured by Nimbus 9 Productions. There are also a very limited number of presentation copies all numbered 0000000. These were only given to members of the group.
    2. The next pressing is identical to the one above except that it is packaged in a shiny silver gatefold with no cut-out and numbered 0013000 through 0030000. Also by Nimbus 9.
    3. In 1977, Umbrella was purchased by Trend Records and the album was repackaged in a dull gray gatefold with a large illustration, no cut-out, and no longer numbered. Manufactured by Trend Records & Tapes Ltd. An alternate take (or modified version) of "Birds Of A Feather" was apparently used to correct a very slight piano mistake on the original's intro.
    4. In 1983, Rough Trade Live! was also sold simply as Rough Trade. It was repackaged in a blue sleeve with a picture of Carole Pope on the front and the band on the back. The actual record is the 1977 Trend pressing, not a re-pressing. It is not numbered.

    Several other variations have come to light, mainly different combinations of the above LPs and jackets that were mixed together at a later date.
