My copy of this has the same Didier Léon painting on the cover but has the BYG yellow/orange labels. Same matrix.

I have this (the BYG 529 345 version) and the gatefold cover is not green and makes no mention of Gong on the outside other than identifying Christian Tristch as "Of Gong". I will upload pictures as soon as possible.

My copy is credited to Gong and has a green cover with a picture of the band on the front - Daevid Allen, Pip Pyle, Robert Wyatt and someone else possibly Archie Legget(?)
Anyway, trippy record!
