Notes

Australian WRC pressing, sourced from original stampers and featuring unique sleeve art. Quad LP playable as stereo. Issued [at least] twice - the main difference appears to be on the spine of the box, with one version using white font and a red logo, the other [this one] with font and logo in beige. The one in beige looks to be, but may not, in fact, be the older. Includes 12-page libretto.
