there appears to be copies of this album that have every mark of an original blue note pressing minus "the ear" in the deadwax. most likely a result of left over stock labels/sleeves that were used up in the early days of Liberty taking over Blue Note. Instead of the ear, they have the perplexing "114" lightly etched on both sides. This 114 mark has been said to have appeared on other Liberty pressings. The other way to tell is by the vinyl weight, it is slightly lighter than an original blue note. Despite all of this, this 1966 repress sounds extremely good as it comes from the original van gelder masters.
