First UK STEREO release has 'unboxed' blue Decca labels. Laminated front cover, with laminate wrapping around the spine for 1/2" onto jacket rear. Lyric insert displays both mono (LK 4990) and stereo (SKL 4990) catalogue numbers. Inserts with only STEREO catalogue number are not original. Back cover has an ''indicator hole'' to let the inner sleeve peep through: red = mono, blue = stereo.

First on cover, second on label.

My matrix numbers match this identically , but I have boxed Decca Labels. Very odd.

My copy has the 'indicator hole' cover and lyric sheet with both mono and stereo catatogue numbers as per releases 46010 and 5746884, so I assume is earlier than release 10561579 (which has no label photos), but has boxed blue labels and Matrix/Runout as per release 2830296.

Looking for info on this album. I have 2 versions of this album the Edsel edition 2 disc, but the other is 16 tracks absolutely van not find any info on here as to which release this is? All I see listed a CD versions have with 13 tracks original version, than re releases 17, 19, 23 tracks and the 2 disc. The 3 bonus tracks are 14 a winters tail, 15 thats me, and 16 the silent sun.

My copy of In The Beginning has the "Side One" label fixed to both sides of the record. I've had this record for years but only just noticed this anomaly. Is this commonplace? It's the London Collector Series 1977 reissue - LC 50006.

There is incorrect information in the description above. The boxed and unboxed labels were NOT used interchangeably. This is proven by the inserts in the two stereo versions. The unboxed version has an insert with both the stereo and mono catalogue numbers (LK 4990 and SKL 4990). The boxed version has an insert with only the stereo (SKL 4990) catalogue number.

The first issue is the open / unboxed DECCA label.
The UK 'boxed' logo was not in existence until several months after this album's initial release.
