Does anyone else have a pretty noisy pressing? Or do I own a bad example?

I bought a VG copy of this in the late 70s for under a tenner. A few years later I was round at my then-girlfriend's mother's house... and she had a NM copy amongst a load of otherwise crap records. Not only that - it had a promo presskit with it in a cardboard folder with 8x10" photos and a whole load of press stuff. I no longer go out with this girl... and her mother is long dead. How I wish I had smuggled that copy out of the house. Regrets.... I've had a few....
This album remains a crucial document of the 60s US LSD scare with contributions from Tim Leary, Allen Ginsberg and other psychedelic luminaries. Side 2 has a recording of a 'bad trip' with some nameless dude flipping and freaking out.
A couple of years ago I picked up the promo 12" which has some material not on the actual release.
By the way - the track-markings on the promo vinyl don't match the actual sound.

Conceived, recorded and assembled by Capitol Records in the late 1960's. The record strives to achieve a balanced, creditable report on LSD use. It's Narrator, Lawrence Schiller, interviews several users of the drug, medical doctors and noted creative people of the times. Their comments make up the most of the record. A portion of side two is a recording of one user's LSD experience. It starts out as a usual trip for him, it then turns bad. There are several other testimonials from other users accounting for good and bad experiences with the drug.

With LSD still in the culture this record, due to it's perspective, has not dated very much. It remains an intriguing listen.
