First UK issue. Includes printed lyric inner. Initial copies came with a single sheet insert promoting the current tour which started on 2 June 1972 running through until 25th June 1972. Identifying features include Titanic Music publishing credit and no Mainman logo on the back of the sleeve. Later issues have a Mainman publishing credit instead of Titanic and include a Mainman logo on the rear of the sleeve.
Front cover of this issue has derived from US artwork, and the RCA Victor logo and US catalogue number have been pasted over. It is possible to discern a large rectangular cover over, on which the UK details are placed on top of. Look for lines that break./ not continuous. (Not to be confused with second issue cover, where JUST the catalogue number has been covered over and changed.)
First and second cat# on cover and label, third on inner sleeve.
