Inconsistencies: The European release and this release list different authors for track B2.

Track B3 was not available on the 1973 original European vinyl release Solar Fire whereas Track B4 was named differently on both releases. On the other hand a track named "Earth, The Circle Part 2" was only available on the European release in 1973/4.

Released in a standard sleeve, whereas most other vinyl versions come in a gatefold sleeve.
