There is also another green label with small difference from this one. I believe a second pressing
That release got another matrixnumber on A Side
Matrix
A Side (ZAL-11209.P-3)
B Side(ZAL-11210.P-3)

The one listed here is the first press
Decca used BUCKINGHAM
My copy got
mother number 1 (nine o clock)
stamper number B (three o clock)

This is the *actual* 1st pressing from '72! The light blue labeled ones originate from around 1975 when the group was gaining in popularity.
