I heard that is pressing supposed to have the shorter tracks way more longer, like The Battle Of The Locusts.

My "god" did I once love this album. Nowadays I prefer music that's a little more in your face, but it's nice to go back to this one. Tonight I've done that for the first time in probably 4 or 5 years. Here are some random thoughts:
It's not a difficult listen,but it's definitely an "out there" album. What I really love about this album now is the way that the band balanced out the spacious/ritual/experimental tracks with their powerful and upbeat progressive rock tracks. Each side has their thought provokers, while also having a jam. The album would get pretty stale if they went to far in either of those directions exclusively. They got it just right.
For a double lp, this album moves quite briskly in my opinion. It doesn't feel like the longest album, except when you're in the first half of side 2...sheesh.
This album is made better when paired with an abundance of incense smoke.

My copy has the labels pressed back to front on the first disc (swirl on side 2). This pressing sounds amazingly good.

Note that the labels are not printed with the alternate mix times, but the vinyl does indeed contain alt mixes.

Canto de cisne de la psych/ prog. de la Europa continental y el broche de oro de esta interesante banda. Sin duda un álbum top ten en la discografía de 1972. Imperdible de conocer y de disfrutar. Master piece.

Is this a misprint on the spine "APHRODITE´S CIL-D666"? Please see the pictures.
