This is the very first mispressed issue of this album. The third and fourth songs on each side are switched on this pressing. But the sleeve and both labels contains correct order of the tracks. This mispressed track order was also used as the basis of the remastered 2004 CD release, erroneously referred to as "the original UK running order" in that version's liner notes.

This pressing also "the original keyboard only mix".
It does not contain the addition of John Du Cann's guitars, which were added for a
subsequent virtually identical looking release.

Labels have large B&C logos with textured surface.

Let's see if I got this right. There are two mixes, the "guitar mix" and the original "organ only mix". The guitar mix added guitar to Friday the 13th, Before Tomorrow and S.L.Y. The rest of the songs are without added guitar. However, the guitar version Friday the 13th are played faster and in a different key with different vocals (is it sped up?), while Before Tomorrow and S.L.Y. just straight up added the guitar to the existing track.

Edit: The bonus track Play the Game also features guitar, if anyone was wondering.
