"An H.M.V. Recording released in Australia exclusively through World Record Club."

Australian WRC 1st pressing, sourced from original stampers and featuring unique sleeve art. Mono and stereo versions have same number on back of sleeve (T/4075) - the mono version has "T-4075" on beige 'strobe' label, while the stereo has "ST-4075" on green 'strobe' label.The stereo version has a printed "stereo" rosette on the back, and the mono has a red sticker with "mono" placed over this (though these tend to drop off with age). Unusually, the addresses on the rear of the sleeve give the Adelaide address last.
