Very exceptional record and vinyl and cover in like new condition no marks, no rips, absolutely stunning copy. Blue Text inside.

Notes
- First press with V1 (Version 1) gatefold sleeve, featuring the controversial image (censored by some outlets at the time) of naked ladies on front/back.

- Cover spread has 'unwrapped/floating' gloss laminate applied, matt print areas left exposed at the two cut edges where the albums insert.

- Gatefold opens to view inner spread (glued to outer cover's inside tabs as separate element). Gloss laminate exposing matt areas on all four edges. (Effectively, the sleeve is a flattened 2-piece cardboard tube).

- Hendrix portrait on right-hand side (Back cover behind it).

- Large sepia images of Redding & Mitchell on left (Front cover behind it), with blue tracks/credit text below them. "Track Record" logo center, E.J.Day print data to left. Erratic use of upper & lower-case in titles.

- Discs in poly-lined white paper punch-hole sleeves. "Patent no 800513 & 973939" "Made in England 108"

Defect in matrix stamping on this early issue, altered by hand.

This typical vinyl is:
Side A: 61300##8 A//1 12 10
Side D: 51 61300#8 B//1 1
Side B: 10 61300#9 A#//1 1 ("10" has the '1' backwards, or it's an oddly stamped "CJ" upside down)
Side C: 61300#9 #B#//1 12 10
[The #, #8 or #9 indicates scratch-out]

Matt texture 'Version 1' labels with additional inverted catalog in parenthesis.

Titles: This UK issue has no suffix to "Come On", "The" is prefixed to "Burning Of The Midnight Lamp" and "Cross Town" appears as two words.
