It's been said that the album has been messed with when reissued on Black Widow, which I don't doubt. Those heavy metal guitar riffs found seem to not fit in with 1969 aesthetics. Plus the piano sounds more like a digital piano (like one can get in 2001, but impossible in 1969), than a real one. Apparently the original LP was released on the Gnome label and sold to religious sects interested and friends and not in stores (you can see why). I don't doubt the vocal and pipe organ parts are definitely 1969, but the guitar and piano sounds like a more recent add-on. At least on their next album Tardo Pede in Magium Versus, everything heard on the reissues are as they would be the original LP from 1972, very little guitar (no metal guitar riffs). As for In Cauda Semper Stat Venenum, it appears that original LPs never show up so it's hard telling how it would be like to hear it in its original form.
