            are the closest. My copy is a gatefold with inner sleeve, and has published by mainman/chrysalis on side 1 label, which no other copies seem to have. Can anyone help?

              Got this in 1973. One of the first albums I bought. It changed my life. My mum nearly threw it out of the house because of the language used. I bought a remastered version but it doesn’t compare ….. this is the real deal, it sounds wild. I couldn’t live without this…and I might have it buried with me when I go.

                      My original was a Dynaflex bought in 74, and then bought a UK original which sounds so much better and clearer.
                      A beautiful sound.
