Yes, agreed with you. Typo is little bit different. So, means there was 2 different press with orange centre. Anyway, this one can be registered under other entry as a repress.

I can't see no difference between this one and the 1992 reissue, exept the mould SID code: IFPI 121E (invisible on the 1992 CD).

Don’t let the “Dashiell Hedayat” moniker confuse you — this is actually a rare, barely-recognizable Gong record from 1971. It features Daevid Allen on lead guitar, Gilli Smyth on backing vocals, Christian Tritsch on bass and acoustic guitar, Pip Pyle on drums, Didier Malherbe on saxophone, flute, and “water music” (sounds to me like someone taking a piss), and Dashiell Hedayat, who is credited with “solo guitar on track I and IV, all lead vocals, keyboards, cosmic-hedayat-rumble and cut-ups”

The “cosmic-Hedayat-rumble” description isn’t that far off, actually. The album’s first side, “Eh Mushroom, Will You Mush My Room?” sounds akin to the works of Sergius Golowin, Walter Wegmuller and the collaborative efforts of Ash Ra Tempel with Timothy Leary. I guess what I’m trying to say is, it’s really far-out. Think of the trippiest Gong you’ve heard before (with the great sax and searing, space-y guitar licks) and combine that with some kosmiche keys and a guy singing and speaking in French (presumably) about drugs. It’s Gong minus Steve Hillage plus some drug-addled poet.

Check out Obsolete for yourself. I think you’re going to enjoy it.

A small warning printed below the credits on the back cover reads:
“Warning: This record must be played as loud as possible, must be heard as stoned as impossible and thank you everybody.”

FROM ALLMUSIC:
French pseudo-beatnik Dashiell Hedayat persuaded the psychedelic, prog-rocking Gong to back him up on Obsolete, his second (and final) album project. This is the Continental Circus-era Gong, and the song structures here resemble that album's stripped-down sound. Propelled by Allen's spacy guitar and Malherbe's spicy sax, the tunes on Obsolete, though at times experimental, aren't as involving or full-blown as those on Gong's Camembert Electrique, recorded on the heels of Hedayat's album. Hedayat sings, or rather talks, in French on each piece. He wrote/composed all the "songs" in the autumn of 1969; the compositions were then recorded in May 1971. One of the most interesting and fleshed-out cuts is "Long Song for Zelda." Introductory acoustic guitar (courtesy of Tritsch) leads to actual singing from Hedayat before he breaks into his standard monologue. Allen conjures up mild guitar atmospherics which lend a lazy Traffic-like quality to the music, and William S. Burroughs brings the piece to a close with an obscure 12-second quote.

The group seem to be at recess on "Fille de L'ombre." Hedayat recites the title phrase repeatedly over a backdrop of musical "free play" featuring Gilli's "intergalactic whispers." The album ends with the lengthy "Cielo Drive/17," as close to a Gong song as it gets on a non-Gong album. More French babble from Hedayat, an excerpt of a baby singing, prominent flute and sax from Malherbe, and ample electric ambience from Allen are the order of the day in this mainly guitar-driven recording. The performance gets a bit loose in the middle, with some awkward time changes and unfocused (or confused) direction, and the composition is padded with a few long stretches of "interstellar matter," but the band somehow manages to make it all sound rather...cool.
