Notes

This entry is for initial pressings that were released in a strange fragile gatefold cover variation: The outside was made of laminated cardboard, while the inside was made of printed paper pasted on the cardboard. Presumably Polydor did not have much experience with Double LPs and most copies arrived damaged in the shops and are now quite rare in mint condition. These covers were replaced in 1970 by the more common and stable 2612 002 covers still housing the unsold 184 183/84 records. No nude girls on this version.

I have a 1968 German, possibly one of the variant #2’s. This is mind-blowing incredible sound quality easily destroys the 5-6 other versions I have including later U.S. issues and the 2010. I have no idea if this is first UK stampers but it literally sounds so damn incredible (and dead quiet too!) I think it might be. Wow!!!!

The order of the songs is wrong, (as listed on the cover) it should it be: A, C, D, B with 'Voodoo Chile (slight return)' as the last track.

I don't believe that the second matrix variant applies to this very first press. First variant uses UK track stampers = 613008A//1
