My version of this has the turquoise labels, but has the later back cover with "RIVERSIDE" in all caps and "MONO" in all caps and in parentheses, all in a box on the lower portion of the back cover, along with the usual technical info.

In the deadwax, on both sides it has the "Bell Sound" stamp and the "sf" scribe for Sam Feldman, who cut this version. Side 2 also has a very faint stamp which appears to say either "Audiomatrix" or "Audiomatt".

I have a few Turquoise label/Orpheum production Riversides, and the deadwax inscriptions usually match those of the original pressings. If this version is indeed from 1968 as stated in the description above, i would make sense that Feldman cut this, since it was around 68 that Riverside/Orpheum was bought by ABC, who began pressing their catalog, albeit with different covers and/or titles, and Feldman did cut a lot of stuff for ABC and it's own jazz label, Impulse.

Perhaps this was an in-between version, using Feldman's new cut, but using up old Riverside stock of labels and jackets? Any info?
