Papa Bear's Medicine Show - Golden Girl (1970)

This album is one of the rarest in Canadian music history (rarer than anything on the TREND label, minus maybe Guido Smit) and is also Vancouver's first bootleg LP recording. Only 100 copies were pressed of their lone studio effort (unbeknownst to the band). They had recorded at super-fan Michael Willmore's studio, who then compiled the tracks and pressed 100 hand-numbered copies at Rada Records in Vancouver behind the bands back. Upon discovery of the bootleg they were pulled from stores and sold for 6$ each. Pretty insane considering copies have sold for more than 2000$ CAD.
