Comparison of matrix number with The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland and The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland : defect in matrix stamping on this early issue, altered by hand. Number on side C is different as 613009 B has been added with hand and the machine stamped number is completly scratched except //1 See images.

Comparison layout with label of The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland (Unfortunatly The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland doesn't show image label) :
- Label A and D are similar
- Label B and C are different. The text beginning with "ELECTRIC LADYLAND" is very close to the center. The text seems to have move up. SIDE B and side C are not printed below ST 33 but nearly on left side.

Titles: This UK issue has no suffix to "Come On", "The" is prefixed to "Burning Of The Midnight Lamp" and "Cross Town" appears as two words.

This corresponds very closely to the copy I have. However that has 108 on the inner sleeves.
