Volume two of the Bootleg collection is the first to be dedicated to just one label, and what a label. Yellow Dog is without any shadow of a doubt the most important source of Beatles bootleg releases.
This volume has 12 substantial chapters. Starting with its origin we discuss the label's history.
The first chapter is dedicated solely to the main label Yellow Dog.
If some of the recordings were not up to Yellow Dog's high standards, they were released on a sublabel with the name of Black Dog and chapter two deals with this label.
Another famous sublabel, Yellow Cat is discussed in the third chapter. This one has been used for McCartney releases, although it has recently issued a number of George Harrison c.d.'s as well. The listings and reviews include all the latest cds, right up to the publication date of this book.
The other nine chapters are all devoted to various other Yellow Dog sublabels such as Blue Kangaroo, Orange Records, Strawberry Records, Midnight Beat, Mistral Records, Sidewalk Records, Library Records, Stereo Promo c.d. and many others.
Note that although some of these labels have released music by artists other than the Beatles, this book only deals with the music by the fab-four, so the catalogue numbers do not always follow in sequence, and are not complete.
