The label design differs in many UK parallel editions:
On this release the font used is more narrow than usual; the matrix number is in parenthesis, inverted above the cat.# and below J/T code,.
The GEMA caption has no full stops in between the characters.
Side indication on the labels on the right hand side of the spindle hole.
Released in a laminated gatefold sleeve and with a red-coded generic Decca polylined inner sleeve.
We are deeply indebted to Nicky Hopkins and to many friends
