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.

I have the same version as some guys below, boxed decca label, but otherwise exactly the same as this one - the same runout numbers, both mono and stereo catalogue numbers on lyric insert, and most importantly the same indicator hole on the back of the sleeve. Seems like this is a little newer release, somebody before me said that decca changed its logo some time after initial album release, and this lead me to an idea - maybe they had some spare sleeves (ones with a hole) and decided to use them instead of making new ones after logo change. When they run out of them, they made new ones - without holes like #10561579. This is just a theory and needs further investigation and input.

I have a promotional copy that and cannot figure out what pressing it is on here and I'm not even sure it is listed.
It's PS 643 on London s the label.
The front cover has a Promo Stamp, Not for sale on the upper right and the band's name going diagonal upward on the front cover.

My has the insert with both stereo and mono catalogue numbers, but the back cover does not have the Stereo and Mono indicator. I'm just looking for some help to figure out what pressing I own.

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.
