I have a 1968 vinyl version that doesn't appear to be listed. This is my own copy, that i've had from new.
The inner sleeve is printed "Made in England" On the back of sleeve its distributed by "Kinney Record Group". Can anyone help?

I don't think it's hyperbolic to say that Forever Changes is probably the greatest albums ever produced. Like many other people I do feel the album keeps getting better and better after every listen. I'm 55, and first fell in love with the album when I was 22. I've
directly realised just how dark the album really is. Take the first track, a beautiful positive and happy tune. Yet the lyrics are extremely dark, bleak and depressing. The genius of this album comes from the juxtapose between the positivity of the tune and the resigned bleakness of the lyrics. Someone told me that people are the greatest fun. I love everyone, and have so much love to give. Yet tonight I will be alone.The beauty, darkness, and transcendent nature of the album makes sense when you know that Arthur Lee really believed he was dying as he wrote the album. Forever Changes is his epitaph. In Arthur's own words ""When I did that album I thought I was going to die at that particular time, so those were my last words."

Well, this is my TOP 1 album for the desert island...

Both codes are written by hand very small and are partly hard to read.
