Notes

This is the earliest UK issue, with the Island logo & radial text in white at the head of the labels.

The 12-page newspaper gatefold-style sleeve has a heavyweight card construction of the record pocket, unlike later issues using a lighter card stock (which also have the same labels & later labels). Consequently, there is a noticeable paper weight difference between the 2 sleeve versions. The Chrysalis imprint appears on page 12.
Later repress (2nd press) issues do not have the Island imprint on the labels; See: Issue without Island imprint labels (which are also a lighter weight vinyl).

I have this LP but i'm confused about what press it is. . It has the exact matrix as shown above & has the crystalis imprint on page 12. The only thing diferant is the lettering on the label, wich is red lettering in stead of white. Now i wonder what pressing it is? anyone ?
