'Leaving It Up To you' was deemed too controversial in referencing the murder of Sharon Tate by Charles Manson, so for this second pressing the outtake 'Coral Moon' was substituted at short notice. Subsequent re-releases reinstated the original track. David Thompson in A Music Lover's Guide to Record Collecting' writes: '“Early into the manufacturing run, the decision was made to replace the song with “Coral Moon”—only for the decision to be reversed immediately thereafter. Only a handful of amended versions appear to have been made; in terms of scarcity, they rank alongside any of the Velvet Underground’s so widely feted rarities.”

As "Leaving It Up To you" is 4:34, and “Coral Moon” is just 2:19, visually this edition identifiable by track B3 being a thinner band than other pressings
