I'm looking at buying an early press one but found a couple with the banana sticker is missing? Does this matter in terms of Re-sale value?

Managed to pick up the original with unpeeled banana for £29 at a random record shop while vacationing in London.

A really good album. Every song works and flows together nicely. The only problem is that this's mostly for the adventurous. People not used to noise or have a sensitivity to it will not like parts of this album. However, tracks like Sunday Morning and I'm Waiting for the Man may make the album grow on the listener.

EDIT: why was my review posted on a specific release? i typed this on the master.

One of the coolest albums ever, it's got everything going for it; I feel lucky to have found an original in decent shape WITH the banana sticker for $40 bucks. Probably my best find to date and it's great to hear this on an original pressing even if mine is a bit noisy at times with its crackling and occasional pops.

Everything starts with this album. It's 50 years ahead of its time so we haven't really heard it yet. One day soon we will have.
