    This LP release originated at EMI Australia. They sent stampers to EMI NZ so it could be pressed locally and as it was a joint project between EMI NZ and Phonogram NZ (Music for Leisure) with a massive TV and radio promotion it was pressed at the EMI plant , 401 Hutt Road , Lower Hutt and at the Phonogram pressing plant , Wexford Road , Miramar , Wellington.
    The labels used at both sites were the same and the only way to distinguish the pressing is the raised rim 6mm from the edge on the contract pressing done at Phonogram. The matrix numbers appear as YAPAX 1071-3 on side 1 and YAPAX 1072.2 on side 2. They are hand written and facing out to the edge.
    Assuming the matrix number is at 6 o’clock, the initials CQ appear at 2 o’clock on the b side only.(very small) This is the mark of Clive Lipman a senior Mastering Engineer at EMI Australia during the 1970’s.
    The initial labels have Made in New Zealand by His Master's Voice (N.Z.) Limited. around the top edge. After 1/5/72 when HMV changed to EMI this was changed to Manufactured in New Zealand by E.M.I. (N.Z.) Limited.
