    I have a copy with a smoothed sleeve. "All rights reserved" isn't on the back and the title is quoted. The matrix run-outs both have 'IF' at the end. Which version is this?

      I also have a copy with a textured front and back but rocks are unquoted. There is a P in the runout...

        My copy is embossed both sides but doesn't have ROCKS between quotes, so maybe it falls between an early and a later release ...

          Only one I've found where one of the matrix numbers match what I have. Side B variant 4. My Side A has the same 1K at the end of matrix. Also, label is JC-34165 as opposed to PC.

            This is the record that got me interested in collecting vinyl in the first place.

              The 8th track's exact title is Lick and "a" promise Could somebody correct this ? It has been wrongly duplicated on all the releases.
