One Disc has side one on the label and side 4 instead of 2 on side B. The second disc has 2/3 on a/b ??? Is it a miss print ?

The quality of this NIMBUS double disc is excellent. Stunning stereo imagery with highly detailed dynamics. Not presented in a FATBOX however the rear sleeve notes that a cassette version is available, this would indicate an early pressing.

Is this not a South African release?
The front and back covers are the inside gatefold of the original vinyl.
The gatefold right is the original back cover with a Gallo logo at bottom left, a South African company.

My copy of this album (obviously a reissue with light blue MCA 'day' labels) did NOT come in a gate-fold cover like the original pressings. ~ _) (V) (-) 2012
