this is the second copy of this album that i own.i bought this copy myself when i was a kid~i think i bought it around 1977 when i was about 10years old(i think?). it has a bright orange Capitol is nowhere NEAR as good as my 1968 is quite thin-sounding.rather poor bass and it lacks depth/ almost sounds like a poor third or fourth generation dub of a master copy is in very good condition,but it is missing the poster.i don't recall it ever having perforated photos included with it.i only recall the seperate photos with the poster.

I believe this is the pressing I have, as the photos are perforated, but the vinyl label is purple, not orange as described. Anyone else?
