For this occasion AMM Music was recorded at a concert given for the Crypt Programme in Notting Hill Gate, London, June 12th, 1968. The tape has been edited and interspersed with silence in accordance with a random number programme to give a representative cross-section of a concert lasting two hours.

First on cover, second on label, third on spine and inside cover.

Released in a gatefold cover.

The complete AMM session was later released on CD as The Crypt - 12th June 1968.

Most, if not all, copies of this record have the labels switched.

Yes, the tracks are definitely listed wrong.

I have the STRONG suspect that the tracks in the Wergo CD are in the wrong order: track 1 is the one from AMM (with interspersed silence as written in the notes) and 2 is from MEV.
