Australian WRC 2nd pressing on green 'strobe' label, sourced from original stampers and featuring unique sleeve art. Reissued as a 'ambassador' LP - two LPs would be given free, in return for roping in a new member. Mono and stereo versions have an identical sleeve - there is a printed "stereo" rosette on the back, and the mono has a red sticker with "mono" placed over this (though these tend to drop off with age). "S-4335" on labels (previously "ST-4335"), while the sleeve still has "S/T 4335" on the spine (no number on back). The sleeve is now a non-flipback, although the 1967 address combination is unchanged.

Besides the Liner Notes by Burnett James, the rear cover includes:
1) A photo of Daniel Barenboim, as appears on the front cover of international releases
2) Control Guide for Settings, for purchaser to note treble, bass and balance preferences
3) The WRC logo and note: "An H.M.V. recording, issued exclusively in Australia by World Record Club:
