First U.K issue is:
NO logo EMI on label, fully laminated cover, 2 types of inner sleeve.
Produced for Edwards Coletta Productions
Each track is a group composition
It is worth noting that variant 1 - 1st pressings with A-1 B-1 matrixes are extremely rare on this LP. They were changed prior to the release date, with even most release date copies having A2/B1 matrixes instead. Only 1 in 20 1st pressings have this matrix - with A2/B1 matrix being used through all remaining 1st pressings, and many 2nd pressings also.
Inner sleeve - There are 2 variations possible for the 1st pressing run:
- Copies bought in the first month of release feature a plain inner sleeve with 'Patent Nos. 1125555' text and 'Made In Great Britain' text in BLACK PRINT near the bottom on 1 side.
- 1 month after this LP was released, EMI introduced the 'Harvest' advertising inner sleeve (end of July / early August 1970) - with all copies made from this date (till the end of 1973) onwards having the 'Harvest' advertising inner sleeve instead.
