my copy has the printed inner, but no fwDS in the matrix. 2 rings on the labels, the white parts on the labels look more yellow than in the pics uploaded. mine doesn't match this or the 2006 reissue though. RWK 1159

I don't own this release but why is the album going for $40 when it seems like this is a pretty common album?
