I purchased a used copy from Dusty Groove last week with the following dead wax inscriptions.
Side 1 (etched) LKH1A RED JIMMY VIII GRAM
Side 2 (etched) LKH1B RED JIMMY VIII GRAM

No barcode

I enjoy listening to this music on a Linn Sondek LP12 that I originally purchased in December 1984 from Hi-Fi Buys in Indianapolis.

I’m struggling to identify/match my copy to any listed. At first I thought UK 84 then 83 and then Ireland but none of them match exactly.

On label it has LKH 001 on both side 1 and side 2
underneath that LKH 001 A LKH 001 B
The only match for the label appears to be the alternative sleeve version but my copy is the updated sleeve.

Stamped LKH-1-A LKH-1-B in Matrix
Etched LKH1A RED JIMMY VIII GRAM (LKH1B......on Side 2)
LKH1 on back cover
So, a partial match to several versions. A variance to one of them but no clue which one. Any thoughts?

There is an alternative cover for this album. I got it from a Linn tech when he was in town doing an LP12 clinic. The catalogue number on the back cover is listed as LK 001 and the cover has the photo almost the full size of the cover. About a half inch border around it. I'll try to get a scan/photo of this to post. I do not believe this cover version was ever available for sale. As I understood it was a test printing and was rejected in favour of the cover version that was released. I'm not sure whether this item should be listed as a separate version or not.
