G & L

This version is an early print, as the inner sleeve does not have the CREST DESIGN (c) QUEEN PRODUCTIONS LTD 1975 under the crests on the inner sleeve. (see Sheer Heart Attack for version with copyright). The inner sleeve corners are angle cut.

There's another version (maybe earlier) very similar to this one, but without the Trident logo on back of sleeve: Sheer Heart Attack

Hi I have and earlier matrix that is mention in some specific Queen page. Matrix is 3U/3U seems to be the most rarest record from Queen. All other identifiers for the 1st press are correct as well.
Somebody can confirm?

Got a Scandinavian issue, Made in Sweden, ncb, EMI 7C 062-96025, with yellow labels and small red boxed EMI. And got another, Made in Sweden, ncb, EMC 3061, with big red EMI on left side of label. Inner sleeve on this one is stiff, with small photos of band members on back. None of them to be found on discogs.
