My copy has a hand-written note made by (I presume) the previous owner on the label of Record 2. It reads "Labels reversed". I havent played this collection yet. By counting the bands between tracks I can see that, indeed, Record 2, Side A has 6 tracks when it should have 7 and Record 2, Side B has 7 tracks when it should have 6. So it would appear the labels are reversed on Record 2. I have absolutely no idea how common this error is to this set.
