Recording first published 1958.

Flipback sleeve. 3rd mono issue. The cover is in a lighter tone than the 1st pressing, and has less colour, notably the red planet (no prizes...), which is now in the same blues, blacks, whites and golds as the rest. Mono and stereo versions have same number on back of sleeve (TE 205) - the mono version has "TE-205" on beige 'strobe' label, while the stereo has "STE-205" on green 'strobe' label. The stereo was issued with a large "S" sticker on the front of the sleeve. The addresses on the rear of the sleeve have been updated (this combination was used briefly in 1964):

330 Flinders Lane Melbourne
177 Elizabeth St Sydney
260 Adelaide St Brisbane
62 Pulteney St Adelaide
Barnett's Buildings Council Ave Perth
