    I just found this press is EARLIER than on Big Swirl - stampers on side B with credits are 1 1 1, but on Big Swirl 1 1 3,
    side A on my copies has similar stampers. it does mean mispress not 1st press, that's why so small quantity. Much rare than on Big Swirl actually.

      As far as I see, it's exactly the same LP than the so called first press here May Blitz - The 2nd Of May
      Show me a picture of the both labels of each records from actual records not archive photo, I bet it's equally large swirl on a side and little swirl on b side with all informations, no ?

        Unlisted, but... Was there ever a 70's U.S. or Canadian pressing of this guy?

          Just a little bit more restrained than the debut, and that turns out to be an advantage. Growling guitars still reign, most exquisitely so on 8 mad grim nits, a classic muscular piece of rock. There is some acoustic guitar now too, even something that resembles folk-rock on The 25th of December, a julesong, no less. High beech has a nice mixture of electric and acoustic elements and Just thinking is as fragile as it gets, thereby ending the album on an unexpectedly placid note. Still quite a heavy album, of course, but the increase of diversity should attract even listeners who have their doubts about this genre.
