    Greg Calbi cut (as per the stylized 'baseball', not an 'H' as designated in above runout information). Naturally, it sounds pretty excellent.

      There is an error in the above entry. The MCA Canada LPs were not manufactured at MCA Gloversville. MCA Gloversville most likely supplied the metal parts to MCA Canada. The Canadian LPs were manufactured @ Cinrram in Toronto as indicated by the etched CR or machine stamped CR in the runouts. You can tell by the Cinram manufacturing by double pressing ring on the labels. I also own a promo copy of the LP.
