Kind of "mixed" release in-between the more commonly known first and second pressings of the series. This one has obscure no. on spine and on back cover, but OBS on labels, like the second pressings; additionally, it has Island Records on spine, but not on back cover nor on labels.

ps: Runouts are mechanically printed.
