Notes

Came in diecut paper sleeves. Band/Album name written in ink in upper right hand corner of side A sleeve.

This is the UK Test Pressing for this release. I assume there is also a US Test Pressing of this as well. I have both a US and a UK Test Pressing of the first LP (My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky).

I have not played the LPs, but by visual inspection / comparison to my US version, this does appear to have the E1 / E2 "incorrect" track pressing.

Release Info:

Housed in a tri-fold jacket. Includes poster and a download code [mp3, 320kbps].
Recorded at Sonic Ranch, Tornillo, Texas.

Pressing plant uncredited, identified by the matrix etchings.

Pressed with an incorrect track order. Track E1 is 'Oxygen' and track E2 is 'Kirsten Supine', when they should properly be the other way around.
