Oops, the Takoma Records website I mentioned is www.wirz.de
Labels are listed in the "American music" section.

Ok, re MLP 7323 there was a 1966 pressing, black & white cover but design differs slightly from the 1971 repress which we have here; easy way to tell is that the 1971 repress has a Biograph label logo on rear cover, lower right, as they reissued it for Melodeon. This means that the UK Storyville (1967) pressing is a repress. no one here has a 1966 Melodeon pressing, it seems. Check Takoma Records website under labels section for more info.

I believe that this came out in 1966, not 1971; it does not make sense for the UK Storyville version (1967) to be the first ever vinyl LP pressing, worldwide. Can anyone research this?
