Your contributors may not have noticed two things: 1. that each message ends with a small 'LB' sideways-presumably the disc cutter. This is so on either the double LP version or the single LP version and also that the W- at the end varies (W 4-2, W-26 / W-17, W-68 / W-5, W-34) and 2. that the Beggar's Banquet' on the spine can either be 'script' {cursive} lettering or block lettering.

my copy contained the additional ''press the eject...'' lp. should be considered a separate release.

*Play on the name of the surrealist author of 'Les Chants De Maldoror' ... Isidore Ducasse … *
