Australian WRC pressing for The Record Society. The LP is housed in the right side of the gatefold, with the sleeve opening inside at the centre. Mono and stereo versions have the same sleeve - the mono version has "6181" on labels, while the stereo has "S-6181". The stereo version has a small "stereo" sticker on the front (there being insufficient room for a rosette on the back, as was now customary). "S/6181" on back and inner, "RS 6181" on spine.
