Original double LP private pressing from Michigan. Originals can be identified by a few factors, including the actual title stickers pasted on spine, copyright stickers pasted on back cover, and the stickers on the labels not covering the title. Song "Airborne" is misspelled as "Airborn" on the Side 4 label.

The first bootleg version of this release was on two separate LPs and was therefore easy to identify as such, but it has been pirated and bootlegged many times since then in ways that make it hard to tell from the original. But with all of them the bootleggers have never achieved 100% accuracy- so there are ways to identify the originals if you look closely.
