    2 × Vinyl, LP, Deluxe Edition, 2019
    Great packaging and the vinyl is very quiet however, compared to the first UK and US cut on vinyl, this is darker, a bit muddy, and muffled at the top end. I doubt I'll get too much time with this version.

        I've got a copy of this (CHR 1059, US, early pressing) where "Oh My" is listed as track 1 on side 2, but instead "Doctor Doctor" is there (as well as in it's correct spot on side 1). Very strange Phenomenon. On a side note: "Oh My" as the opener on side 1 and "Too Young to Know" on side 2 is a much better sequence for the album.

          One of the single greatest rock albums of all-time! If you like guitar driven rock then you must check this out.

            But how does this sound? Is there better version available on vinyl?

              This LP, at least in its original pressing, seems to have quite a mess of different misprints and pressings!! My copy has the sleeve misprint on 'Too Young To No' plus both labels have 'Oh My' as track 1 but just to add to the confusion, side 1 plays with Oh My at the start and side 2 starts with ' Too Young.....'!!! Just what is meant to be the correct running order with this album?? Its odd because the matrix numbers all add up so its not from alt plates. A head scratcher this one.....

                My copy of this album is a mispress with both sides of the vinyl containing the same tracks:- 1. Oh My 2. Crystal Light 3. Doctor Doctor 4. Space Child 5. Rock Bottom. Label is different on each side and lists as per the sleeve.
                Sleeve is original with misspelling of "To Young to No".

                  Is there any one has any idea about this album has Too Young Too Know on both side? A1 and B1. I got this from eBay, US. It printed in 1974. Mark on the inner as 31781 RE1 on side A and 31782B on side B.

                    The version I have is green label with Oh My listed as track 1 on both sides of the vinyl.
                    The tracks play as listed on the cover ie A side "To young to No" B side "Oh My"
                    A side has Shenker in credits B side has Schenker.
                    B side is signed KIP with what looks like L G the A side has what looks like GL.

                      The version I have has C L & 1 stamped on A&B, same otherwise. But A1 & B1 tracks are reversed, and listed as such on the label. Also, B1 is titled "Too Young To No" and Schenker is spelled "Shenker" in credits. So I would guess that is the first press.
