Background: Great White Wonder was one of the first “underground” LPs to be issued on the market, originally reaching stores in mid-1969 in plain white covers. The album contained early studio outtakes and collaborations with The Band from 1967.
The album was originally packaged in a plain white cover with no identification on it at all, and it became a surprise best-seller and spawned the popular and collectible Trademark of Quality label. The album had numerous repressings over the years and was issued with a variety of covers and a few of the pressings were colored vinyl.
