Ok was just putting the 2 versions away when I noticed one record was more flexible than the other.
The TG weighs 140g.
The GT weighs 106g.
So perhaps my assumption above was wrong.
Any experts out there?

There is definitely at least 2 Cdn pressings/variations of this Lp. I have both laid out in front of me. I have no way of knowing which is first but I suspect the version where the record goes into the gatefold by opening it then inserting record in via inner (middle) gatefold opening is the earlier press. That's the only sleeve difference.
For the label. On the matrix runout the letters r reversed to show GT and not TG. Their letter size is not the same. The GT version has "1970 True North bottom of label.
The TG has "MANUFACTURED IN CANADA" on bottom of label.
I don't know if original inserts were produced for this lp.

An absolute gem of an album. The desolate, mournful tones of John Mills-Cockell's synth and piano blend gorgeously with the distant call of Doug Pringle's sax and the almost Third Ear Band-like percussion of Alan Wells, into a music that is cosmic, introspective, melancholy and deeply affecting. I cannot say more !
