has someone identified the release year for this one, except that it is between 1981-1991 when Carrollton pressing plant was in use?

Jan Hammer is not even credited on back cover. They forgot the last line it seems.

No Pressing Plant in run out... P .... Stands for Pirman. Oh P is on every copy ... Nevermind I see on the real Pitman Press there's a extral P somewhere on the dead wax indicating that it's a Pitman.

A copy I have matches closest to this version. Matrix/Runout is a little different:

Matrix / Runout (Side A, stamped):
o P AL 31996-2A
Matrix / Runout (Side B, stamped):
P BL 31996-2A (something appears faintly stamped, it may be an O, C, or D)

Digging this pressing. Music is trippin’ me out a bit but so good.

The very meaning of the word "fusion", physics aside. I have no idea where to place this album on the shelf. It is certainly jazz but would serve as a fiery flight of fantasy for any of the hardest of rock fans. The interplay between McLaughlin's guitar and Jerry Goodman's fiddle shows a precision only found in the finest of Indian classical music, so is it world music? One thing is for sure: If I ever reserve a section for my favorite albums, it will be in it.

Amazingly good sound quality. Fantastic separation. Very sharp sound. Recommended!

The album I have shows the following charecteristics:
Orange CBS labels, S 64717 (KC 31 067), ℗1971 on left side of the label underneath the stereo double arrow, Made in Holland.
Matrix runout (looks like handcarved) : S 64717 A , S 64717 B (the 7 in the middle looks like a fusion of Z and 7)

One of my CBS LP copies has the name of the manufacturer redacted on the back and spine of the album cover. Does anyone know why the name would've been blacked out?

Who was in charge of the design of these releases and have they been banned from ever designing product ever again? Embarrassing.
