Here is a link to an interview with the great mastering engineer Kevin Metcalfe along with his discography.

In the early part of his career he worked at RCA U.K. (1973-75). While he was there he cut the lacquers for Pinups and Diamond Dogs.

I have a copy with the matrix numbers:

Side A: ARL1-0576A-1oly
Side B: ARL1-0576B-7E

Rearside sleeve has printer credits: Printed in England by Clout & Baker Ltd.

Which version of the 1974 UK release is this?

My copy has the correct first issue APL1-0576A-1oly A7Y (hand etched) for side 1 (ARL1 was etched with part of the R scratched out to make a P) but side 2 has APL1-0576-B-6E 'W' (hand etched). The 6 could be a G. It has 'BEWITCHED' on the side 1 label and 'Printed in England by Clout & Baker Ltd.' on the rear cover. I presume it's a 1974 pressing but I can't find it catalogued anywhere. Anyone have the same or similar?

I have an italian version CPL 1-0576 (light brown rca labels & SIAE stamp on vinyl)
But the cover is an 'English' one (non-gatefold) with a very small text message 'Printed by campy grafica Italy'
