White label double bootleg LP

Notes: Contains no label or catalogue number. Poor quality MONO recording of the film, back of jacket is plain white. Front cover features a hand drawn cartoon image of Frank and has the following printed: “All the songs! All the dialogue! The Entire Rocky Horror Picture Show! Now You Can Hear: Planet Shmanet Janet, Sword of Damocles, Transylvanian Jam Session, Super Heroes-And ALL the sounds of the Frank N. Furter Castle!” Actually claims to have 5 sides!?

Broken up as follows:
Side 1 & 5 begins with 'Science Fiction' and goes through to the end of 'Over At The Frankenstein Place'
Then a second track (called side 5) begins with Magenta: 'How sentimental' and goes through to the end of the film ('The Transylvanian Jam')
Side 2 begins with 'And so, it seemed that fortune had smiled....' and ends with 'He carries the Charles Atlas seal of approval'.
Side 3(RECORD 2) begins with 'A weakling weighing 98 pounds' and ends with 'Under the circumstances, formal dress is to be optional'
Side 4 begins with 'Food has always played a vital role in....' and ends with the finish of 'I'm Going Home'
You would obviously then have to go back and play the end of side 1 to hear the last part of the film!! In other words, each side is one long continuos track except for side 1 which is broken up into two tracks (the start & end of the film)
