Notes

censored sleeve, non-gatefold

timings from labels, sleeve timings differ

In matrix runout side B, in this and many other Probe releases, '255' should be '2SS' (see real '5' etched in 4005B). What it might look like a 'εΓ' should be 'LW' (vertical reading with main matrix on bottom).

Odd , the one I've got is the censored one without the gear wheel thing but it is a gatefold.

If you don’t care about getting the cool sleeve and uncensored art of the first pressing, these are a bargain. I can’t compare the sound to the first pressings but my copy sounds really good.
