This is what I think is a repressing. My jacket has a sticker over the original catalog number and barcode. The new sticker reads: FV41265. My vinyl is NOT translucent. Hope this helps.

Double Dip in label, translucent vinyl. No country of manufacture on label. Bought in Dublin record shop in early 80s when imports were not available. Waiting for someone with another one or more definitive info.

Why is this considered to be an Irish pressing in the first place?

Unquestionably NOT an Irish pressing. Gangsters never appeared on Irish pressings, they always followed the UK track listing. The label and typeface (and track-listing) is consistent with US & Canadian pressings.

There are more than one Irish pressings of most albums. This is a reissue. John changed info on album with no information on it? Most people call for a vote of they have a case. Where is it from, I checked all releases before listing. What was proven before the changes.
