Notes

US version with a front cover variation: the image of Gabor Szabo is centered, whereas on this US version, the image is cropped differently and positioned at the left edge of the front cover [see and compare images].

A-9173 on front sleeve, AS-9173 on labels.

The "LW" in the matrix/runout details refers to the metalwork (submitted as "Lacquer Cut At" by lack of "Metalwork Made At") for the stamper being made at Longwear Plating. Also, the cursive etched "sf" in the deadwax next to the stamped Bell Sound logo refers to mastering engineer Sam Feldman.

Recording dates:
1965 (tracks: B2, B3)
May 6, 1966 (tracks: A1, A2, A3)
August 4, 1966 (tracks: B1)
August 17, 1966 (tracks: A4)
