    Though I'm a Jimi fan almost every album I own (especially the live ones) sound like crap. Finally owning an original (US copy) I have to say it sounds fantastic.

      My copy just has 30681 RS-6261 A IA on the first side and 30681 RS-6261 B IA on side 2.

        I seem to have the same or a simular? tri-color but with different etching:
        side 1: RS6261 - A - 30681- 1F o C 10
        side 2: 30682 RS 6261B 1H o B 2
        • nuclearbomb's avatar
          I have a pressing that appears to be this one, however my runout is etched "RS 6261-A-30681-1F" for Side A and "30682 RS-6261 B 1A" on Side B. Can't find any info on this besides some eBay listings claiming it's a first press.
