12″ bootleg album released as 1st Records No. 161 in October 1970. From the typewritten liner notes on the back cover, penned by Barry Silver who is also credited with the album design:
Please Release Me is an album that just had to be released! For many reasons. Too many to be honest. To name just the most important one: everybody wants the songs and things on this album and they have been waiting too long already. So, why keep them waiting forever and ever and not give them what they want?
